The City Harmonic
The band has been described as high-energy and Britpop with soaring anthems, captivating sing-along expressions and a sound similar to Coldplay.
“They offer music with meaningful lyrics while still being appealing to a wide audience,” says Alma College student Ryan Weaver.
The Canadian band came onto the music scene with “Introducing The City Harmonic,” an EP featuring “Manifesto,” which soared to No. 5 on iTunes and captivated over a million viewers on YouTube, becoming the best selling new artist on Billboard’s Top Current Digital Sales Chart.
The group’s second album, “I Have a Dream (It Feels Like Home),” came out in October 2011. Band members include vocalist/songwriter and pianist Elias Dummer, bassist Eric Fusilier, guitarist Aaron Powell and drummer Josh Vanderlaan.
According to the group’s website, “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.”
