The City Harmonic paved its success chanting the Lord's Prayer in its first song, "Manifesto," and the title track "I Have A Dream (It Feels Like Home)" off the band's new album continues to recognize the importance of God's saving grace.
“At the album’s heart is the overarching theme of brokenness and redemption, of light and dark, the unveiling of something bigger and better than ourselves,” explains lead singer and pianist Elias Dummer on the band's official website. “The dream, like Martin Luther King’s, is that there is another way…the eventual truth that we will awaken, just as Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz awakened from her dream, to find ourselves home at last.”
Joining Elias to round out The City Harmonic is bassist Eric Fusilier, guitarist Aaron Powell and drummer Josh Vanderlaan, focuses more on the communal aspect of worship, rather than gathering a large fanfare. The name “The City Harmonic” is symbolic of the members of a band, all working individually for a focused cause; but together creating a sound that worships God.
“As we work together, we can bring hope,” states bassist Eric Fusilier. “As we contribute each of our own parts to make this sound, there’s something greater that’s birthed out of it. And that’s part of the DNA of what The City Harmonic is about.”
The City Harmonic is gearing up for their 65-city I Have A Dream Tour, beginning in November of 2012. The band will be partnering with Compassion and Life Promotions and the will be joined by special guests Daniel Bashta as well as author and National speaker Bob Lenz and Eric Brandon.
