National Talent Search To Provide Platform, Development Opportunity For New Artists

February 6, 2008

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (February 6, 2008) — New Reunion recording artist Tenth Avenue North is working hard on the road in support of its new single, “Love Is Here” which garnered seven adds when it initially shipped to stations, followed by seven more, including KSBJ in Houston, The Air-1 Network and WPOZ in Orlando, on its official January 18 add date. This, its second week out, a total of 15 AC stations and six CHR stations are playing “Love Is Here,” the first single off Over and Underneath, the band’s May 20, debut CD.

Jim Beeler, Music Director KSBJ enthusiastically shares, “It’s really nice to see the phones light up for a new band. ‘Love is Here’ absolutely connects.”

“Tenth Avenue North is definitely a band to keep an eye on,” adds Eric Allen, Air 1 Program Director. “‘Love is Here’ not only sounds great on the radio, but I think lyrically the song will have a huge impact on our listeners. I’m so impressed with these guys and excited to see how God is going to use them – they are the real deal!”

In addition to remarkable radio momentum, Tenth Avenue North is already confirmed on several 2008 festival line-ups including Creation East, Creation West, Atlanta Fest, Soulfest, Sonshine and is also preparing for opening slots this spring with such artists as Jeremy Camp, The David Crowder Band, and MercyMe.

Bob Thompson, President, Christian Festival Association, comments, “Tenth Avenue North’s stage presence is electric. The band members are personally engaging and their music is both spiritually significant and culturally relevant. We are really looking forward to both their music and their ministry at many of our events this summer.”

Third Coast Booking Agency President, Mike Snider concurs. “The belief in Tenth Avenue North from the festival buyers and promoters is remarkable. They have really caught the vision of the band’s ministry and passion for the church. I don't recall having a band that fits into so many places and with so much honesty and such a compelling live show. They truly are a band worth championing. We are excited about the future and honored to stand beside them as they continue to grow.”

Tenth Avenue North is also slated for prime positioning in physical and digital retail outlets and will have a major presence during Gospel Music Week.

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 21-city promotional tour in support of “Love Is Here” as well as its upcoming album project Over and Underneath. “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.
