Join us this week on Christian Devotions SPEAK UP! when Scott interviews drummer Jeremy Thiessen and singer/pianist Jason Germain from Downhere, about following God in new directions.
Downhere was formed by Marc Martel and Jason Germain who were roommates at Briercrest Bible College in Caronport, Saskatchewan. Martel and Germain added fellow Canadians Jeremy Thiessen and Tyson Manning, along with American Corey Doak in 1999. The two co-writers and lead singers reflect the others’ commitment as well as the entire band's resolution to take Downhere to a higher level in especially challenging times. Clearly, they've been tempered by time, yet their resolution as believers, like their commitment to each other and to their mission, only endures and grows with time. And that sentiment is echoed by the band's drummer, Jeremy Thiessen. "It's been nearly nine years since Downhere was born back in Canada. The music industry has seen some pretty significant changes and challenges in that amount of time and so have we. But the one constant in our story is the sense of calling.”
Interestingly enough, Downhere is making its final appearances. The band has decided God is leading them in different directions. Join us for a show discussing how God leads in new directions, even in the face of great success. Jeremy and Jason also share the importance of family time. You won’t want to miss this powerful show.
