The City Harmonic
2011 Breakout Artist of the Year, The City Harmonic, barreled its way from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada onto the music scene with its EP,Introducing The City Harmonic, featuring the song "Manifesto," which soared to No. 5 on iTunes and captivated over a million viewers on YouTube. Top that with becoming the best-selling new artist on Billboard's Top Current Digital Sales Chart (over 80K downloads), and it's enough, among life's crazy distractions, to get your attention.
But this band isn't content to feed the machine or build a fan base so much as to build upon a dream - not a dream as in a fairy tale - but THE Dream. These four guys grapple with the tension of this world, crafting it into anthems of longing, hope, and love-songs of light for 'seeing through a glass darkly.' The City Harmonic makes music that makes you reconsider what you really believe… about yourself, your world and your God.
"Music engages us emotionally and intellectually," the group's vocalist/songwriter and pianist Elias Dummer said. "There are universal signs of God's presence in every part of it. It's like a glimpse of something bigger than ourselves, some pervasive and yet otherworldly dream. And if we can somehow spark in people that dream, something they just can't shake, then I hope that will inspire them to sing like every word matters, to live like every day matters, and having tasted heaven, they'll get on with helping this world feel more like home."
