Hi. Welcome to our One Came Down site. Thanks for visiting.
A bit of history: George and Pamela started One Came Down about a year after being born again while attending Calvary Chapel Orange County, where we were both on the worship team under the direction of Pastor Jim Young. We, along with our son George, are currently on the worship team at our home church–Calvary Chapel Grace Fellowship in Tuxedo, NY.
We had both played for years in secular rock bands including Bob Seger, Meatloaf, Ian Hunter/Mick Ronson Band, Corky Laing, Melanie, Spirit, The Flirts, Genya Ravan, and The Blackberry Blues Band to name a few; but the heart of worship captured us and we began writing songs to worship and glorify God. The name of the band came to Pamela…and we were off and running!
We both wrote and wrote and prayed and prayed for an opportunity to get into the studio to record our new music. Our desire was to record at Shore Fire Studios in Longbranch, NJ with our friend and brother in the Lord Joe DeMaio. The story of how God made that possible is amazing…more on that later. (see Stories and Testimony page)
Once the studio was set we did not hesitate for a second to call on David Meyers and Jim Verdi to record with us. David and Jim are the bass player and drummer in The Blackberry Blues Band. Both are life long friends and great Christian brothers–not to mention fantastic musicians. On guitars we have been unbelievably blessed to have our son G. George playing with us. On two of the songs we enlisted the aid of another dear friend, believer, and incredible sax player Tommy (Taco) LaBella.
The sessions went well, but slowly, interrupted by a bout of cancer, and attacked by the enemy in numerous ways, but finally the CD is finished!!
The CD is available on CD Baby, Amazon, Spotify, Google Play, and iTunes. It is currently for sale at Calvary Chapel Grace Fellowship, Calvary Chapel Milford, and Calvary Chapel Northern Valley. We continue to work to get it placed in more churches and, hopefully, some local outlets. You can also see and hear them on this site and, if you drop us a line, we’ll figure out a way to get them to you from here as well!
God bless you all. God’s grace and peace,
George and Pamela
