Downhere 11 Covenant Nominations
31 August 2009

The critically-acclaimed pop/rock band, Downhere, was honored with ELEVEN 2009 Covenant Award nominations from the Gospel Music Association Canada, which makes the group the highest ranking nominee of the year. The 31st Annual Covenant Awards will be handed out October 23, 2009 in Calgary Alberta, Canada, as the finale of GMA Canada Week. Downhere’s outstanding number of nominations are:

Album of the Year Artist of the Year Group of the Year Recorded Song of the Year Song of the Year Seasonal Song of the Year – “How Many Kings” Rock Song of the Year – “My Last Amen” Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year – “Ending Is Beginning” Pop/Contemporary Song of the Year – “Here I Am” Modern Worship Song of the Year – “Live For You” Inspirational Song of the Year – “The Beggar Who Gives Alms” (All songs nominated were written by Marc Martel and Jason Germaine)

"We're honored to be recognized in our home country, and excited that we're a part of the music that is coming out of Canada,” says Downhere. “We're looking forward to being a part of the CGMA week festivities. This is an album we feel the Lord has given us and it's a blessing to see it resonate with so many people."

Downhere’s recognition from GMA Canada’s membership comes on the heels of a very successful year with radio, retail and media. The nominated songs, “Here I Am” and “Hope Is Rising” peaked at #5 and #17 on the AC charts, “My Last Amen” peaked at #5 on the CHR charts and “How Many Kings” hit the top 5 on the AC charts in late 2008. Nominated CD, Ending Is Beginning, debuted on the Christian Contemporary Album Chart at #17 and was heralded as one of the Best Christian Albums of 2008 by ChristianMusicToday.com.

Downhere has also been a previous winner with the GMA Canada Covenant Awards in 2002 for Rock Album of the Year and Rock Song of the Year. In April 2009, Downhere won their third JUNO Award for Ending Is Beginning, in the Contemporary Christian/Gospel Album of the Year category and won a GMA Dove Award for Modern Rock Recorded Song of the Year in 2003.

Downhere is poised to release their first holiday project October 6, 2009, How Many Kings: Songs For Christmas, which features timeless classics of the season done in the popular Downhere style. And again this year, Downhere will be part of Centricity Music’s Bethlehem Skyline Tour that will also feature labelmates, Jason Gray and Lanae’ Hale.
