About Tenth Avenue North:
Headliners Tenth Avenue NorthÝs 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 bandÝs current single ýHealing Beginsţ 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 (ýBy Your Sideţ 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 ýInside and In Betweenţ Tour ˝with only one album under its belt. The band has been said to ýtour relentlesslyţ 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, ýBy Your Side,ţ claimed the Song of the Year honor.
