The City Harmonic Make Headway on Tour Bus Crowdfunding Project
<p”>Internationally acclaimed band, The City Harmonic, released “HEART” on September 1st (Internationally) and 3rd (USA) to critical and fan acclaim. The 14 songs on HEART are underscored by the cinematic and communal aesthetic prominent in all of the band’s music while building from where the band left off with its widely acclaimed, JUNO Award-winning I Have A Dream (It Feels Like Home. Reflecting life lived by the band members since their full-length debut, the new album shifts from the dream of what could and should be to the complexities of how to follow the true humanity of Christ’s example in the world.

Co-produced by the band – vocalist/songwriter and pianist Elias Dummer, bassist Eric Fusilier, guitarist Aaron Powell and drummer Josh Vanderlaan – and Jared Fox, HEARTplaces Christ at the center while delving into themes of grace, discipleship and being, and becoming, truly human, all the while giving the listener permission to sing out in hope, in hurt.
With Eric planning to rejoin the group on the road, having been sidelined since his cancer diagnosis early last year, The City Harmonic have launched the “CityBus Project” crowd-funding campaign at IndieGoGo- raising $5,721 of $30,000 in the first couple days of the 30-day project. The potential “perks” for donors are many but many include free tickets to shows on their headline tour with special guests Shawn McDonald and The Royal Royal that hits the road in October.
