New Music: Downhere

Heard a wonderful Christmas song on the radio last night that immediately had me googling it. I found out that it was “How Many Kings” by Downhere. If you go to their webpage you can listen to some of their music for free, including ‘How Many Kings’. I discovered several other songs I already knew and loved. Don’t miss tracks #1, #6, and #7! I think this group is a new favorite!


  1. I LOVE that group! I went to their concert last Spring (actually, it was Shawn McDonald’s concert and Downhere was opening, but whatever…). Their songs are musically and lyrically beautiful!

    Glad you discovered them and enjoyed their other songs!

  2. I luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuv this group!!!

  3. My fiance introduced me to Downhere several years ago. They are a blessed alternative to some of the other contemporary Christian music on the radio. I’ll have to check this song out, though!

  4. I love Downhere! They have some great songs. My favorite is “A Better Way”. Im off to find “How Many Kings”!

  5. Oh this is gorgeous, thank you!

  6. Love Downhere – I have an autographed pic!

  7. Glad I found your blog here. I’m the bass player for Downhere and I love that you found our song. Thanks so much for posting about it. After reading this in your about:

    “I’d say it is about making the most of your resources so that you can have the greatest impact possible on the world around you, beginning, of course, with family.”

    I look forward to reading future posts. Thanks for writing!

  8. I found DownHere the same way last Christmas, and have been a fan ever since! “How Many Kings” is on my year-round playlist — I think its a great reminder year-round of what Christ did for us (and not many people will give me a hard time for listening to Christmas music in July since its not a classic Christmas song).

    Also, I just saw the bassist commented above me. Wow!

  9. Thank you! I’m always on the lookout for new Christian music, especially since my husband has been out of work. There’s nothing like good music to remind me how much I have to be thankful for, no matter the external circumstances of life.
