The story of The City Harmonic started in a high school in Hamilton Ontario, where lead singer Elias Dummer met bassist Eric Fusilier. They played music together in band class. Elias also played guitar in a worship band with Aaron Powell on keys. Then they switched instruments. Two additional members, Sasha and Matt where on board when they formed the band called ELIAS. They released an indie album called Hope is Born Again in 2008. That year they won the Covenant Award for “Modern Worship Song of the Year”. Sasha then left the band and Matt followed to take a job as pastor. Eric’s college roommate Josh Vanderlaan was filling in as drummer until they decided to keep him and start the band over again. After a long time with no name the finally settled on The City Harmonic. In 2011 they were signed by Kingsway Worship. They released their first studio EP called Introducing City Harmonic. They won three Covenant awards for that album including New Artist of the Year.
