|Tenth Avenue North Becomes Only New Artist in 2008 to Garner 2 Number 1 Radio Singles
12 December 2008
Reunion recording artist Tenth Avenue North is at the top of the radio charts again this week with its hit song “By Your Side” claiming the No.1 spot on R&R’s AC Indicator chart. “By Your Side,” off of the band’s debut album Over and Underneath (5/20/2008), joins its first radio single, “Love Is Here” as a No. 1 hit and makes Tenth Avenue North the only new artist in Christian music to have multiple No. 1 singles in 2008. “Love Is Here,” reached No. 1 on the CRW CHR radio chart earlier this year.
Also impacting this week is news of Tenth Avenue North receiving the 2008 Readers’ Choice Christian Music Award for “Best New Artist.” The award is given by Christianitytoday.com and voted on by Christian music fans.
A very moved Mike Donehey, the band’s lead vocalist, shares, “This is completely humbling and encouraging. Being recognized at radio and by fans is definitely an honor. We pray that God would continue to give us the grace to get out of the way long enough for people to see Him.”
Tenth Avenue North, Mike Donehey (lead vocalist/acoustic guitar), Jason Jamison (drummer), Jeff Owen (electric guitar/background vocals) and Scott Sanders (bass guitar), have been featuring its brand of intellectual melodic pop-rock on its debut album Over and Underneath (5/20). “Simply, our mission as a band is to know Christ and to make him known,” says Donehey. “It’s a grand adventure.”
With one listen to the music of Tenth Avenue North, it becomes obvious that songwriter Mike Donehey and his bandmates have a gift for expressing truth in a way that simultaneously educates, enlightens and entertains. They are as much teachers, as artists, demonstrating this through their intellectual, yet vulnerably accessible songs that echo the heart of the human condition and the hope of the risen Savior.
