Blog: Featured Album: The City Harmonic - We Are

Oct 28 2015

In the next in our series of featured albums,
we look at the latest release from
The City Harmonic, titled 'We Are'.



Raucous, award-winning band, The City Harmonic, known for its eclectic modern hymns and worship anthems of longing, hope and celebration, was formed through the sweat, joy and tears of urban mission. From a crucible of small churches of various denominations in Hamilton, Ontario, calling themselves TrueCity, the heart and line-up of the band was fused. Grappling with the struggle of everyday people and writing songs for worship fueled by a "together for the good of the city" ethos, The City Harmonic returns with its third full-length album, WE ARE.

"The City Harmonic seem to balance creative and catchy music so well. This is a very fine line for any band to balance, fall one way on this tightrope and you can fall into a trap that loses one set of fans. Listeners like to have a mix of catchy melodies with creative music and The City Harmonic are one of those bands that seem to get it right time and time again. I really enjoyed their previous album Heart, but I love this album even more. Have a listen to this album and I'm sure by the end you will be clapping, singing, dancing and crying along to some of the best songs around.".

Composed by The City Harmonic members Elias Dummer (lead vocals, keys), Eric Fusilier (bass), Josh Vanderlaan (drums) and Aaron Powell (guitars), and produced by Jonny Macintosh, WE ARE (#WeAreTheCityHarmonic) bursts with a renewed commitment to the band’s original pulse. With 11 authentic expressions of worship and unity, WE ARE captures what gets them up in the morning and keeps them grounded come what may.

From soaring anthems like “Solid Rock” and “Maranatha” that call believers to loudly declare their praises to the quieter moments of devotion in “Still and Small” and “One,” WE ARE builds on the truth that in Christ, we are one.

It can take months before some songs become popular. Most never find success at all. But, every so often, a song strikes a chord and finds an audience, literally, overnight. This was the case for “We Are One” following the band’s debut performance of the song on the May 2 episode of “Beyond A.D.,” the NBC.com talk show that accompanied the network’s hugely successful miniseries "A.D.: The Bible Continues" from producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett. To measure audience reaction, Integrity made the single available as a 48-hour iTunes exclusive following the band’s performance. The very next day, the song hit best-seller status on iTunes charts in North America, rising to No. 1 on the inspirational chart for the band’s home country of Canadaand remaining there for the entire 48 hours it was available.

"It’s easy in the craziness of making music to lose sight of why you started,But we’ve been through a lot together. We’ve traveled the world in a way we never expected and we’ve seen the beauty of Christ working through this crazy, diverse family we call the Church.
Elias Dummer
