Katrina Benefit

This Thursday September 22nd Downhere will be participating in a live television broadcast to benefit Katrina victims, Gospel Angels: A Concert To Restore Hope. The line up includes Third Day, The Blind Boys Of Alabama, Nicole C Mullen and many more. For more info go here.


As I write this, I am flying back from Vancouver with my wife after having had a great time in Winthrop, Washington. Our new record label, Centricity Records, organized a retreat for all of their artists, in a beautiful location in north central Washington State. And it wasn’t just the artists who were invited – they also invited spouses, which made the retreat even better. (However, we did miss Erin, Jeremy’s new bride.)

In preparation for this retreat, we as a band took the time to figure out why we do what we are doing, and how we are going to go about doing it. We put all of this down on paper so that we could share it with the staff of Centricity. It was a really great chance to organize our energies and focus on what we’re really about. It also gave Centricity a chance to figure out who we are and what we all need to do to achieve our goals together as a team.

Over the next few months, you’ll probably start to notice some changes, especially with our website and message board. We will be making a concerted effort to help grow and look after our online community. This is something we have tried to do from day one and I’ll admit we haven’t been doing so well lately but with some new tools and new people to help us out I think we should be able to do a great job.

After spending five days with our new label we are all very excited to be working with such great people. The leadership of this label is very family focused and ministry focused. They are also creative and generous and want to help their artists in whatever way they can. We can’t wait to get started on this next recording and get the machinery working.

If you have a minute stop by and visit our new label mates and learn something about the people we just spent our last week with.
