Elias Dummer

Songwriters in the Round
Guest Artist
As the founder and frontman of one of Canada’s most acclaimed worship bands, The City Harmonic, Elias Dummer helped pen such hits as “Holy (Wedding Day),” “Mountaintop” and “Manifesto”—the latter of which served as the theme song for 2011’s National Day of Prayer and was the walkup music for Major League Baseball player Seth Smith. The City Harmonic earned 12 GMA Canada Covenant Awards and a Juno Award (Canada’s GRAMMY® equivalent), before disbanding in 2017. Dummer released his solo debut, The Work Vol. I, in 2019 and was named Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the 2020 Covenant Awards. In addition, his debut single, “Enough,” spent 26 weeks on Billboard’s Christian Airplay chart. With more than 65 million lifetime streams to date, Dummer's music—both as a solo artist and with The City Harmonic—appeared on charts in more than 30 countries around the world in 2020 alone. He and his family reside in Nashville, and he is readying his next album, The Work Vol. 2, for release later this year.
