Tenth Avenue North (Nashville, Tenn.) June 19, 2008 — Reunion recording artist Tenth Avenue North claims its first No. 1 at radio this week as it tops the Christian Radio Weekly (CRW) radio-impressions chart with its debut single, “Love Is Here.” The song, from its May 20 release, Over and Underneath, has garnered a total of 11,913,700 million impressions and is also ranked No. 6 on the R&R Christian AC Monitored chart and No. 2 on the R&R Christian CHR chart, a major achievement for a new band in any genre.

In addition to great radio momentum, the band continues to receive incredible support from media. Feature stories and reviews have already run in Christian Retailing, CBA Retailers+Resources and YouthWalk. Billboard Magazine, in its May 31 edition noted, “This potent combination of music and lyrics adds up to the year’s best Christian debut.”

Tenth Avenue North, made up of members Mike Donehey (lead vocalist/acoustic guitar), Jason Jamison (drummer), Jeff Owen (electric guitar/background vocals) and Scott Sanders (bass guitar), has been featuring its brand of intellectual, melodic, pop-rock on tour in support of its single, “Love Is Here,” and its debut 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.
