Elias Dummer, former frontman and founding member of the Covenant Award-winning band The City Harmonic, released “Heartbeat”, his second of three new songs and a forthcoming album available in association with Integrity Music. The single is available now through all major digital platforms.
Featuring finger-picked electric guitar and a relatively minimalist arrangement, the song is written around the idea of following Jesus step-by-step:
“Give me your heartbeat, give me heaven
‘Til everything I do follows the rhythm of your footsteps
As I walk after you…”
“Heartbeat,” will be followed by a third single, “This is Holy Ground”, in January and the full-length album, The Work (Vol 1), on February 8. Dummer says the studio-recorded album focuses on the relationship between worship and discipleship with the premise that “disciples worship and worship disciples.”
An Ontario native and Tennessee resident, Dummer is passionate about the local church, drawing inspiration from his roots with TCH, a band birthed from a local church unity movement, and from his role in helping to plant The Village, a fast-growing UMC community near Nashville.
