Nashville, Tenn – 10 February 2014 – Last week Sparrow Records/Capitol Christian Music Group duo City Harbor debuted their self-titled album. Comprised of singer/songwriters Molly Reed and Robby Earle, the music of City Harbor is already receiving strong coverage through rave reviews, media coverage and radio airplay.

Produced by Ben Glover, David Garcia, Ed Cash and Matt Bronleewee, City Harbor is being touted as "engaging," "comforting," and "impressive." Along with numerous album reviews, the duo is featured in such outlets as Rhapsody, Youthwalk, Christian Retailing, HomeLife, Crosswalk, FCA's Sharing The Victory, and are the Artist Spotlight at TheSoundOpinion.com. They are also featured in the upcoming issue of CCM as well as this month's featured artist on LouderThanTheMusic.

To promote their debut album last week, City Harbor held a live album release event on street date with HearItFirst.com. They also made a few radio stops followed up with area concerts, hitting such markets as WMHK in Columbia, SC and the Family Life Network in upstate New York. The photo to the right is from the WMHK concert event.

ABOUT CITY HARBOR:
The moniker City Harbor is quite the fit for this duo’s blend of organic and harmonic pop. With songs sharing about real-life issues, such as living out our faith in such a complex world, the words “City Harbor” represent not only what Earle and Reed hope their music is for the listener, a shelter from the storm, but are also inspired by Jesus’s words in Matthew 11:28—“Come to Me all who are weary, and I will give you rest."

Their first single, “Come However You Are,” is currently climbing the charts at radio. At press time the song is No. 23 at AC Indicator and No. 27 at National Christian Audience. The music of City Harbor is also featured on two WOW projects. “Come However You Are” is on the new WOW Hits 2014 compilation CD, while “It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” was featured on the WOW Christmas 2013, Deluxe Edition.

Reed and Earle have already toured wtih Francesca Battistelli, Amy Grant and appeared at last year's Night Of Joy. This past Christmas season, City Harbor was part of the "It's Christmas Tour" with MIKESCHAIR and Finding Favor. This Spring will take the duo on the road opening for Sidewalk Prophets. Tour dates are listed below. “This is an exciting season for City Harbor, and we’re excited to share the core of who we are by encouraging people to go to Jesus in whatever shape they’re in,” Reed exclaims. “Come to God and receive His peace, love, grace and rest. That’s the heartbeat of our message, a resounding reminder that God is always there.”
