Downhere Nominated for Two Dove Awards and a Juno Award

In press conferences held earlier this week, Word Records artist, downhere, received nominations for two Dove Awards and a Juno Award.
The two Dove Award nominations are for the “Rock/Contemporary Album of the Year” for So Much for Substitutes, and “Modern Rock Recorded Song of the Year” for “Breaking Me Down”. The Gospel Music Association’s 34th Annual Dove Awards will be held April 28th in Nashville, TN.
The band’s Juno Award nomination is for “Contemporary Christian/Gospel Album of the Year” for So Much For Substitutes. The 33rd Annual Juno Awards are given by the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences and are the equivalent of the United States’ GRAMMY┬« Awards. The 2004 Juno Award ceremony will be held April 4th in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
“Our Dove nominations are encouraging, as we are being associated with artists like Jars of Clay, Switchfoot, Audio Adrenaline and Todd Agnew…artists we have great respect for and that have influenced our music,” states the band. “The fact that our home country has recognized our album with their highest music award is a great honor as well.”
downhere is currently gearing up to headline the first leg of the Food For The Hungry and Air1 Radio “Will Play For Food” Tour this spring. Also featuring Jonah 33 and Pivitplex, the tour will hit west coast markets beginning April 1st in Los Angeles, CA and make its way through 16 cities, including San Jose, San Francisco, Phoenix, AR, Albuquerque, NM and Amarillo, TX.
The current nominations are not the only accolades downhere has received. The band was recently awarded two Covenant Awards – the Canadian version of the Dove Award. The foursome, who hails from Canada, nabbed “Modern Rock/Alternative Album of the Year” for So Much For Substitutes and “Modern Rock/Alternative Song of the Year” for “What It’s Like”. 2003 brought downhere a Vibe Award Nomination for “Group of the Year”, and in 2002, the band’s self-titled debut garnered a Juno Award for “Best Gospel Album” and two Covenant Awards for “Rock Album of the Year” and “Rock Song of the Year” for “Larger than Life”, as well as a Vibe Award for “Rock/Alternative Album of the Year” and a Dove Award nomination for “New Artist of the Year.”
