downhere is a Juno, Dove, and Covenant Award winning Christian Rock (melodic alt-rock) band from Canada. They have released three albums to date, with the third being Wide-Eyed And Mystified, which was released on May 23, 2006. As with other bands such as Fleetwood Mac and Vertical Horizon, downhere has two lead singers.

The band was formed by Marc Martel and Jason Germain who were room mates at Briercrest Bible College in Caronport, Saskatchewan. Martel and Germain added fellow Canadians Tyson Manning and Jeremy Thiessen to the mix and released a now out-of-print, self-titled debut CD on Slyngshot Records. That album was re-worked with new bassist Glenn Lavender and became their debut international release through Word Records.

Their second album, also released through Word Records was called So Much For Substitutes. In 2006 they signed to Centricity Records and released Wide-Eyed And Mystified which led to Covenant Awards (GMA Canada) for Recorded Song of the Year (for "A Better Way") and Rock Album of the Year and the 2007 Juno Award for Contemporary Christian/Gospel Album of the Year.

In 2007, the band released 2 additional CDs that were unique. In early 2007, they released Wide-Eyed and Simplified, which contained new versions of 8 songs from Wide-Eyed and Mystified, in addition to three popular songs from earlier releases.

Later in 2007, the band released Thunder After Lightning (The Uncut Demos). This album contained 15 previously unreleased demos which were considered for use on Wide-Eyed and Mystified but were not used. The CD also contained demo versions of 2 songs which were used on Wide-Eyed and Mystified.

The band completed recording sessions for new album, Ending is Beginning, set to be released on September 23, 2008. The band released the songs for a few days and gave fans the chance to give input on which songs they should put on the album. The songs that made the cut have yet to be revealed.
