ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Downing Family makes their home in Oklahoma. They grew up with Christian bluegrass music and love singing their testimony of faith in Jesus Christ.

This CD contains the very best of Bluegrass Gospel vocals by the band and great bluegrass instrumentalists like Ron Block (of Alison Krauss & Union Station), Rob Ickes (of Blue Highway), Byron House, and Zach Runquist (of The Sons Of Tennessee). Recorded in Nashville TN, the crisp sounds of perfectly blended harmonies, and "room-filling" bluegrass pickin' will tantalize your ears and soul!

MEET THE BAND:
Jennifer Downing plays the fiddle and sings harmony and lead vocals. She has been playing fiddle since age seven and grew up harmonizing with her sister, Angela. Since she loves coming up with new inspirational music for our group, Jennifer is always singing to herself around the house, thinking up new song ideas and different ways to arrange harmonies. She loves bluegrass music and is thrilled to be able to present the gospel in this way. Her prayer is that churches and families are touched by the music God put in her heart. She works at her parent’s business and also keeps everything at home running. Some of her favorite things are her niece Ashley, calico kittens, aggravating her bro-in-law Luke, thunderstorms, green chilis and coffee.

Angela (Downing) Miller plays the mandolin and fiddle, and sings lead and harmony vocals. She loves harmonizing with her sister, Jennifer, as they grew up singing together constantly. She participated in contest fiddling years back, and still enjoys twin fiddles today. She is married to Luke and we like to say she is Luke’s better half! Right now she is keeping busy with their daughter, Ashley Noel, and is excited to announce the coming of another little one due in November! She thanks the Lord so much for her little family and already has a miniature fiddle for Ashley to play. Some of Angela’s favorite things are snow-skiing, house decorating, baking, flower-gardening and keeping Luke in line.

Luke Miller plays guitar and sings both lead and vocal harmonies. He is our comic relief and keeps us on our toes. His sincere love for the Lord is evident in his walk. His voice blends with the girls’ like a brother, completing the sound. Currently he is working on more solos and has even written a few songs that we hope to sing. A few years ago we discovered our families (Millers and Downings) lived in the same neighborhood, and just a week after that, he met Angela at the mailbox. It was love at first sight. He won Angela’s heart and the rest is history. Luke loves his growing family and is looking forward to baby number 2! He also enjoys snow and anything that has to do with it, like skiing, snowboarding, sledding etc.

Randy Downing plays an outstanding bass (well, at least he thinks so). He also runs the technology company that Luke works for and is the handsome one of the band. (Now you know who really wrote these bio’s!) Randy sings just a little, but never loud enough for anyone to hear. We are trying to work up another acapella that needs a voice bass part, so you may actually get to hear him sing. He is forever thankful to have a family who loves to serve the Lord, singing and playing his favorite kind of music... BLUEGRASS! By the way, the sparkle in his eye is for his lovely wife Kathy.

Kathy Downing is our sound technician and continues to be our biggest encourager and prayer warrior. She is the backbone of the group, taking care of all the details while we’re “tuning”. From clothing, to transportation, to babysitting Ashley, to running the sound board, Kathy keeps it all together. She loves the Lord so much! She has chosen to teach her children by the Word of the Lord, and has been a ready instrument in the hands of a mighty and awesome God. Some of Kathy’s favorite things are: Hawaii, shopping, sewing and chocolate.

Mark Tindle has recently joined the band and...OH what a blessing! He fills in with his excellent guitar playing and amazes us everyday with his outstanding banjo licks. Mark is also a two-time National Mountain Dulcimer Champion. He has performed at many major dulcimer events throughout the country, and is a highly respected instructor. His latest creative energies have been focusing on writing Christian music for worship and edification.

Outstanding Gospel Music! Beautiful Harmony! A must have!
What a true Blessing this CD is! If you enjoy great bluegrass music, an honest gospel message, and beautiful harmony, this is a must have. The great sounds, harmony, and message will make you want to listen to it over and over again! It is truly a pleasure and a blessing to me and I know it will be to you as well. Highly recommmended! I can't wait until the next CD comes out.

Beautiful & Worshipful CD....A Must Have!!
I've just found the Downing Family by chance on cdbaby.com and wow, what a treasure! The instrumentation is top notch, and Jennifer and Angela Downing's beautiful lead and harmony vocals kept me riveted until the very last song. I had to play it again and again. If you love Bluegrass Gospel music, then this one is sure to please.

God's Spirit Dwells Here - 1 Corinthians, 3:16
If you lone to since the presence of God, you'll enjoy this wonderful family's music. I've shared both of their CDs with many friends, and I believe it's made, and continues to make a difference in their lives. I use it like a tract, to share, end encourage others with. Prepare to be moved.

Beautiful harmonies, crystal clear recording, top-notch musicianship!
Tight family harmonies, excellent recording quality, superb musicianship. These guys sound like they mean what they are singing about. This is not just another mediocre family album!
