The Joy Ride 12/20/13

Josh Millwood - Friday, December 20, 2013
It's just too much! Only a handful of sleeps til Christmas!

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Downhere

"We live in an age when the most basic assumptions of orthodox Christianity are being challenged. As a younger band we wrote a lot of songs aimed at pointing out problems and tearing down things that we believed were wrong. But now, at this stage in life, we’re much more interested in going back to the beginning, and using our gifts to reaffirm and shore up the foundations of the faith. We want to be a part of building up the church and preserving the culture."

Downhere is actually from up there - Canada. Jason and Marc - co-lead singers of Downhere - met in college and have been laughing, writing and playing music together for over a decade. It's that friendship and sense of calling that keeps Downhere plugging away, even though the past decade has been anything but kind to the recording industry.

Though the band has parted ways, the guys remain steadfast parts of each others' lives - and continue to produce musical expressions of their faith journey.
