Born out of a church unity movement in the blue-collar steel town of Hamilton, Ontario, The City Harmonic formed in 2009 after leading worship for inter-denominational student events. By 2011, the band had become the best-selling new artist, won its first Gospel Music Canada Covenant Award, accidentally written the theme music for a National Day of Prayer promotional campaign and had its music played at Major League Baseball stadiums. Nine more Covenant Awards (including two "Group Of The Year" wins), a Juno Award and a Dove Award nomination followed as the band released the critically acclaimed albums I Have A Dream (It Feels Like Home), Heart and We Are that sparked hundreds-of-thousands of album and single sales internationally as well as endorsements from Tommy Shaw (Styx), Mac Powell (Third Day), Peter Furler, Matt Redman, Kyle Korver (Chicago Bulls) and Seth Smith (Colorado Rockies).
The albums also introduced the songs "Manifesto," "Praise The Lord," "Holy (Wedding Day)," "Mountaintop" and "A City On A Hill" and more to churches and radio stations internationally garnering hundreds-of-millions of radio listeners and streams on Spotify, YouTube and more. The band further appeared at virtually all major Christian festivals across the US and Canada, toured Europe and Guatemala, toured with Franklin Graham and Newsboys, led at the National Worship Leader Conference, and made appearances on "Beyond A.D." (NBC.com), CBC's "The National," Huffington Post, RELEVANT and hundreds of other media outlets internationally.

The City Harmonic definitely has my vote for New Artist of the Year! They played an acoustic concert at our local Christian University and absolutely blew me away! It was a great time of worship. Thank you Canada for sharing these guys with us.
