Gathering a "New Artist of the Year" GMA Dove Award nomination in the midst of its 65-city tour with newsboys that wrapped up last month, The City Harmonic immediately launch into the festival season with main stage appearances at major events across the US. Known for its engaging live performances, the band also announces its first national US headline tour in support of its highly acclaimed and first full-length album, I Have A Dream (It Feels Like Home).

The headline "I Have A Dream Tour" begins in November and features special guest artist Daniel Bashta, writer of the hit song "Like A Lion (God's Not Dead)," and nationally recognized author/speaker Bob Lenz. The tour also introduces Eric Brandon and will be in partnership with Compassion International and Life Promotions. All the tour dates will be announced in the coming weeks. (The current itinerary, including the summer festivals, is listed below.)

While on tour, The City Harmonic is playing its hit singles and new music from I Have A Dream (It Feels Like Home), including the title track, a top 15 Billboard National Christian Audience radio hit, "Manifesto," which is featured as a bonus track on the album, and its current top 25 and climbing single, "Mountaintop." The fastest-rising song ever for the band on the radio charts, "Mountaintop" is gathering airplay on numerous outlets, including Air-1 Network, WGTS/Washington D.C., WONU/Chicago, SiriusXM, WBVM/Tampa, WTRJ/Jacksonville, WBSN/New Orleans, WAYG/Grand Rapids, WBFJ/Greensboro, KLFF/San Luis Obispo and more.

In addition to being the current radio single, "Mountaintop" will become the band's third music video following "I Have A Dream (It Feels Like Home)" and "Manifesto," which has been has been viewed on YouTube more than 1,500,000 times (http://www.youtube.com/thecityharmonic). For the new video, most of the production credits will be going to the band's listeners. Music fans from around the world have taken video of themselves, friends or church groups, etc., singing along with the song and submitted the results through the band's website (www.thecityharmonic.com/mountaintop). Having received numerous responses to their call for footage, the band is beginning to create the final video now.

One of the best-selling new artists of last year, The City Harmonic, continues to gather international acclaim. Featured on the current cover of Worship Musician, an upcoming cover of Surrender Magazine, and performing acoustic tracks from its new album in a June RELEVANT Podcast, the critics are using adjectives like "fabulous," "infectious," "exciting," "spectacular," "worshipful," "captivating," "creative," "brilliant" and more to describe I Have A Dream (It Feels Like Home). Released Oct. 18, 2011 on Kingsway with EMI CMG Distribution in the USA, the album hit No. 1 on iTunes® in Canada, No. 6 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums chart and never left the Top 4 on the iTunes Christian/Gospel US chart in its debut week at retail. The digital single, "Manifesto," has also sold well over 100,000 copies and is the only song from a new artist in 2011 to break into the top 10 of the SoundScan Top Current digital singles sales chart.

The City Harmonic, consisting of Elias Dummer, bassist Eric Fusilier, guitarist Aaron Powell and drummer Josh Vanderlaan, wrote, recorded and produced all of the songs for I Have A Dream (It Feels Like Home). From the "now but not yet" tension of earthly Christian living heard in much of the album, including the title track and "Mountaintop," to having hope in the midst of struggle in "Fell Apart" and "Be Still O My Soul," to dealing with apathy in "Yours" and "Wake Me Up" and living missionally in "Spark" and "Benediction," the songs take the listener on a poetic journey.
