Biography

He speaks quietly, but when Jason Germain, co-lead singer and guitarist of Canadian band Downhere talks about their new album, Ending Is Beginning, he might as well be singing to the skies.

“First of all, we’re not ending as a band, not by any stretch,” Germain points out, laughing. “But the title does reflect the idea of coming to the end of yourself, of letting ... Read more in Amazon's Downhere Store

Product Description

If their last record was a light-in-the-darkest-places announcement that "the end is really just the beginning," then Downhere's latest Centricity Music release arrives as an artfully textured but heartfelt declaration that, "True progress might mean we have to go backwards." As students of history, Jeremy, Jason, Marc and Glenn have come to recognize and appreciate the fact that their faith is not simply their own-but that it's part of a much larger communion of believers that stretches across cultures and thousands of years. And while we might have the privilege of bearing that torch during the short span of our own lives, they would say it's important to recognize it's not a torch we lit. It's one that was passed to us by generations of faithful saints, and it's one that we'll soon enough be passing on to those who follow us. At first blush that might sound like a heady concept for a pop album, but what Downhere has somehow managed to do is to translate those great truths into the most popfriendly record they've engineered to date, carving out lush and hook-laden aural landscapes, complimented by a lyrical approach that feels personal and intimate. Or, to put it another way, On the Altar of Love is thoroughly passionate, but never preachy.

I saw Downhere perform live one night and was blown away. Since then I have hoovered up all their albums, and every one was great. This one is even better! The sound,the music, the words are amazing and the vocals are truly outstanding!

Imagine Queen at their best, singing Christian lyrics, and you get close to this album!

I'm rubbish at writing reviews so I don't usually bother. But I just wanted to say what a brilliant album this is. I've almost finished my second listen through and it's full of great tracks. I loved Downhere's last album and this hasn't disappointed at all. Meaningful lyrics, superb musical and vocal arrangements and memorable melodies. Check it out!

I have to admit to being a bit of a Downhere fan (great to see live if you have the opportunity) so I knew I would enjoy this album. I was not disappointed - as always the music and lyrics are superb and having listened through several times now, I'm still enjoying the songs.

Downhere have always amazed me with their striking melodies and their powerful lyrics, and this album is no different. With the emotionally touching lyrics of 'Glory By The Way Of Shame' and the awesome melody of 'Living The Dream', I thouroughly recommend this album to anyone. Truly staggering.
