About Tenth Avenue North:
Headliners Tenth Avenue North’s highly anticipated sophomore album, The Light Meets The Dark, debuted in May 2010 at No. 1 on the Nielsen Christian SoundScan chart and No. 15 on the Billboard Top 200 with first week scans of 21,583. The new album also secured the No.1 Christian Album chart position at both iTunes and AmazonMP3, and reached Top 5 on the iTunes overall chart. The band’s current single “Healing Begins” recently climbed into the Top 5 on the AC Monitored Chart reflecting more than 45,114,400 in cumulative spins since its 03/05/10 add date.

Named GMA Dove Awards New Artist of the Year at the 40th Annual GMA Dove Awards, Tenth Avenue North first impacted the music community as the best-selling and most played new Christian artist of 2008, scoring three No. 1s at radio (“By Your Side” finished the year at No. 2 on the Hot Christian Songs chart, and at No. 3 overall for the decade on said chart) and saw its national debut Over and Underneath (5/20/08) cross the 100,000 unit sales mark in less than seven months. To date, Over and Underneath has surpassed the 300,000 mark in total album sales.

Tenth Avenue North, made up of members Mike Donehey (lead vocals/acoustic guitar), Jason Jamison (drummer) and Jeff Owen (electric guitar/background vocals), is one of the few debut bands that has experienced enough momentum to headline its own tour – the “Inside and In Between” Tour –with only one album under its belt. The band has been said to “tour relentlessly” which reflects in its contribution to the 2009/2010 Winter Jam tour (which saw a cumulative audience of more than 400,000), immediately followed by an opening slot for Casting Crowns this spring and a full summer festival schedule. The fall will allow Tenth Avenue North to embark on its second headlining tour. This breakthrough band received 2 nominations for the 41st Annual GMA Dove Awards in the Group of the Year and Song of the Year categories. Its smash hit, “By Your Side,” claimed the Song of the Year honor.

About Addison Road:
It has been two years since Texas natives Addison Road debuted with their self-titled record that garnered the band their first Dove nomination for Best New Artist, was featured as an iTunes ® Discovery Download and garnered 6 No. 1 singles.

Already having shared the stage with star-studded acts such as MercyMe, Hawk Nelson, Jeremy Camp and more, on June 22, Addison Road will release their highly anticipated sophomore album Stories. Featuring songs with memorable hooks and driving beats, Simmons’ vocal abilities continue to impress, lending an honest and authentic voice to lyrics that hit listeners with disarming relevance. The project's first single, “Fight Another Day,” written by Grammy winner and music veteran, TobyMac, is already at No. 11 on CHR, No. 21 on AC Indicator and No. 22 on AC Monitored.

About Matt Maher:
Matt Maher –worship leader, songwriter, singer and recording artist – has taken his calling as a “musical missionary” to create a substantial impact on a national and global stage. As an award-winning songwriter, Maher gained notice as the writer of the internationally renowned modern-worship song, “Your Grace Is Enough.” Highly sought after for his poignant yet poetic writing style, Maher has had songs recorded by such artists as Chris Tomlin, Bethany Dillon, Brenton Brown and Phillips, Craig & Dean. In addition, Maher’s songs have appeared in the Top 10 ranked songs on the CCLI chart, marking their popularity in church worship services around the world. In addition, and a testament to his credibility as a songwriter, three of Matt Maher’s songs, “Christ Is Risen,” “Resurrection Day,” and “On the Third Day,” were chosen by iTunes® as part of its Easter Sunday Service Essentials Collection.

This spring, Maher garnered six nominations for the 41st Annual GMA Dove Awards. He was recognized in the prestigious Song of the Year and Worship Song of the Year categories for “I Will Rise,” a song recorded by Chris Tomlin. Maher picked up another nod in the Worship Song of the Year category for the song “Alive Again” as well as one for Praise & Worship Album of the Year for his acclaimed sophomore project Alive Again (9/22/09). Maher claimed a Dove Award in the Special Event Album of the Year category for his contribution on the Glory Revealed II: The Word of God in Worship project. This industry affirmation prompted the Associated Press to call Maher, “This year’s breakthrough nominee.”

Heading into the Summer, his latest single “Hold Us Together” claims a Top 10 spot on AC Monitored & Indicator charts, reaching 65,707,200 cumulative listeners since its add date of 01/29/10.

Amid busy touring and writing schedules, Maher finds it important to serve alongside ministries including Life Teen and Adore Ministries, while still playing an active role with Oregon Catholic Press’ Further, he serves as a regular host for Worship Together’s “Newsong Café.” Maher, honored with a Praise Award as Worship Leader’s Breakout Artist of 2008, has been featured on the covers of Breakaway and Christian Single, performed live on “FOX & Friends,” written for Billboard Magazine and is an active, bylined contributor to, an interactive conversation on religion.
