Worship leader Elias Dummer, the former frontman and founding member of The City Harmonic, releases his debut album in association with Integrity Music.

“The Work Vol. 1” is a collection of 11 bold and thoughtful worship songs that wrestle with questions of identity and discipleship in an age obsessed with image and achievement.

“We’re constantly told that the only obstacle between life as we know it and “the good life” is hard work,” says Elias Dummer. “We’re told to make something of ourselves. To do something important. To love better, or more, or differently. We’re to know the right people. And if we don’t – and no person has all of these things – we just need to try harder. Somehow, it’s seems as though it’s always the next thing – the thing we don’t possess – that will finally fulfill us.

“What if I won’t ever be enough on my own? What if I don’t need to be? Well, if Jesus is who he says He is, then he’s got it covered. This is a hard lesson for me, but it might be one of the most important lessons a disciple of Jesus can learn: I can’t be God. I should stop trying. I don’t need Jesus to help me find the good life. Jesus is the good life – whatever else may come.

“So this album is my way of wrestling with prayers I’ve needed to sing for a long time. Disciples worship and worship disciples. So my hope is that these songs help us worship in spirit and truth, and grow to be more like Jesus as we do.”

The album follows a successful near-decade run with The City Harmonic who, with songs like “Holy (Wedding Day)”, the seminal “Manifesto”, were awarded Canada’s prestigious Juno Award, 11 Covenant Awards, and multiple appearances on the Billboard charts. In the years since the band parted ways, Elias Dummer helped to plant The Village UMC, a fast-growing United Methodist church in Nashville where he now lives with his wife and five children.

Beginning in November 2018, Elias Dummer released three preview songs: “Enough” (written with Jeff Johnson from Passion City Church and Tom Eccleshall from London’s KXC Worship), “This is Holy Ground” (co-written with Sarah Reeves) and the infectious “Heartbeat”. In just a short time since, the songs appeared on over 3,000 curated playlists with streams in the hundreds of thousands prior to release.

Early reviews assure that the album does not disappoint, with Hallels 4.5 star review suggesting: “this album gives serious thought to the question: can worship music be both profound and cool? With Elias’s “The Work Vol.1” the answer is a resounding yes.” JesusFreakHideout adds: “”Enough” has really struck a chord…featuring a wonderfully singable chorus and lyrics that many of us need to be reminded of every day.”

An Ontario native and Tennessee resident, Elias Dummer is passionate about worship in the local church, mission, and discipleship.
