Spreading truth and leading people to life is exactly what the members of Tenth Avenue North have been doing since launching the band during their college days in West Palm Beach, Florida. The group made its national debut in 2008 on Reunion Records with Over and Underneath, which spawned the hits "Love is Here," "By Your Side" and "Hold My Heart." Tenth Avenue North won the Gospel Music Association Dove Award in 2009 for New Artist of the Year and in 2010 "By Your Side" was named Song of the Year. The band gained further momentum with 2010's The Light Meets the Dark and The Struggle in 2012 which continued to populate radio and the church with such memorable songs as "Healing Begins," "You Are More," "Losing" and "Worn." The Dove Award-winning band's fourth studio album, aptly titled Cathedrals, is a collection of well-crafted songs that inspire community, encourage accountability and celebrate the fact we are not alone.
Lead vocalist Mike Donehey, drummer Jason Jamison, bassist Ruben Juarez, keyboardist Brendon Shirley and guitarist Jeff Owen have forged a unique sound that has made them one of the Christian music's most successful young bands. But for Tenth Avenue North, it's never been about awards and industry accolades, but about reaching people with the truth.
