Christian artists Tenth Avenue North has just released the music video for “Deck the Halls” from GRAMMY nominated, Gold-selling artist Tenth Avenue North. The video, written and directed by Tenth Avenue North and Ry Cox, accompanies the “Deck the Halls” single, now at radio. The track is also featured on WOW Christmas (2011), featuring the top 32 Christian artists and holiday songs.
Tenth Avenue North is composed of members Mike Donehey (lead
vocals/acoustic guitar), Jason Jamison (drummer), Jeff Owen (electric guitar/background vocals) and Ruben Juarez (bass) Tenth Avenue North. The band saw its sophomore album, The Light Meets The Dark, debut 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 album also secured the No.1 Christian Album chart position at both iTunes and AmazonMP3, and reached Top 5 on the iTunes overall chart. 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.
The breakthrough band received two nominations for the 41st Annual GMA Dove Awards in the Group of the Year and Song of the Year categories and the smash hit “By Your Side” claimed the coveted Song of the Year honor.
Tenth Avenue North continued the momentum gained from its first headlining tour in 2009 (executed with only one album under its belt) with feature slots on the 2009-10 Winter Jam and Casting Crowns tours, plus a very active summer 2010 festival schedule. In Fall 2009, the band undertook its second headlining tour – The Light Meets The Dark Tour – which saw Tenth
Avenue North play to more than 67,000 fans and sell out more than half its hard ticket dates, along with generating sponsorships for 1,700 children within Compassion International programs.
With its latest release Tenth Avenue North Live: Inside and In Between (March 2011), a live
CD/DVD experience, Tenth Avenue North has continued to move through constant streams of feature spots and major tours including the current “Make Your Move” Tour alongside Third Day and Trevor Morgan.
