The City Harmonic/RELEVANT Launch Three Exclusive Acoustic Videos
Praise.com Features The City Harmonic in Four-Part Video Interview Series
Internationally acclaimed band, The City Harmonic, set about “getting people in on the act—hearts pounding and feet moving” from its outset just a little over two years ago. Since that time, the band went from anonymity to widespread acclaim, headlining tours across North America and gathering numerous awards along the way. Adding to its list of accolades, The City Harmonic received its first nomination yesterday from The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) for a “Contemporary Christian/Gospel Album of the Year” 2013 JUNO Award for the band’s widely acclaimed and first full-length album, I Have A Dream (It Feels Like Home). The 42nd Annual JUNO Awards, hosted by Michael Bublé, will air on Canada’s most watched television network, CTV, Sunday, April 21.
Continuing to resonate en masse as listeners instinctively join the chorus as the band’s music dynamically bounces from sparse intimacy to soaring celebration and back again, The City Harmonic were recently featured on the RELEVANT Podcast. Music fans can catch the podcast, along with exclusive live acoustic video performances from the band of its hits “Manifesto,” “Mountaintop” and “Holy (Wedding Day),” at http://www.relevantmagazine.com/podcast/city-harmonic-performs.
The band also share their heart for worship at http://praise.com/artist-interview/roots-city-harmonic, the final installment of a four-part video interview series with The City Harmonic by Praise.com. The other three compelling segments feature the band discussing how the song “Holy (Wedding Day)” helped the band through a difficult time, how Martin Luther King, Jr. inspired the band and the “Good and Bad of Touring.”
The City Harmonic, who wrapped a 65-city tour with Newsboys last spring, made appearances on main stages across the US in front of tens of thousands during the 2012 summer festival season, and led its first headline US tour last fall, will announce soon the launch of their “I Have A Dream” spring headline tour. The tour promises to be an immersive worship experience, with a full production alongside the band’s already engaging live performances.
The City Harmonic’s JUNO nomination follows a Gospel Music Association (GMA) New Artist of the Year nomination and the band’s fourth GMA Canada Covenant Award received last fall. I Have A Dream (It Feels Like Home), labeled “fabulous,” “infectious,” “exciting,” “spectacular,” “worshipful,” “captivating,” “creative,” “brilliant” and more by the critics, also sparked the aforementioned hit singles and videos, as well as the video and single of the award winning title track. The band’s “Manifesto” has further gathered more than 1,800,000 views on YouTube.com and sold well over 100,000 copies, marking the only song from a new artist in 2011 to break into the top 10 of the SoundScan Top Current digital singles sales chart.
Despite all the attention, The City Harmonic is not as interested in finding fans as they are looking for participants in the journey. All the latest detail on the band can be found at:
