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.
Best New Artist| Posted March 05, 2012
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.
If Coldplay were a worship band, this is what they’d sound like| Posted October 25, 2011
"If Coldplay were a worship band, this is what they’d sound like"..totally agreeee....i've been listening to different kinds of bands and genre..to worship down to metal....all of the new releases that's out today except for switchfoot...this prolly be the best one that is out now....the city harmonic brings fresh new sound to the table...no boring music just pure worship and talent...i really thought that I will only like the song "manifesto" but when this album was out..listened to them all and this is one of those album that you won't skip a song...finger licking good.
New album| Posted October 10, 2011
I love your new album "I have a dream" I'm assuming you got the inspiration from Martin Luther King's Legacy, Which is a great Idea. I love how you have included Everything musically. Slow downs, speed up, crescendos, decrescendos. ^_^ I love it all!! Great work! Keep it up! Praise God for a group like you guys
Great Artist| Posted October 07, 2011
The City Harmonics is such a great band! I really like their song Manifest. It is such a great and different way to hear, listen, remember, and say The Lord's Prayer. I recommend everyone to listen to them.
something different!| Posted October 06, 2011
A unique voice-unique music-and a set of unique guys with a heart to unite the church in praise to our Father. They rocked KingdomBound at Dairen lake, NY with Manifesto and it felt like we were in heaven. They give their all! I'm excited to enjoy and be encouraged with their new cd.
