Music Wednesday

This weeks music selection is Tenth Avenue North. My brother-in-law, Rob, turned me on to this band and I think they are excellent. I think they have a great sound. Check out their video of "Love is here":

A little background from wikipedia: Tenth Avenue North is an American Contemporary Christian music band from West Palm Beach, Florida. It features Mike Donehey on vocals and acoustic guitar, Jeff Owen on electric guitar and backup vocals, drummer Jason Jamison, and Scott Sanders on bass guitar.[1]
Their debut album, Over and Underneath, was released on May 20, 2008 on Reunion Records, and the band began a tour in promotion of the album near that time.[1] Their song "Love Is Here" hit the Top 20 on the U.S. Contemporary Christian Music chart, and reached #3 by June 21, 2008.[2] It ended 2008 as the 12th most-played song on Christian Hit Radio according to R&R magazine's Christian CHR chart for the year.[3]
The band's next single, "By Your Side", was released in late August 2008, and eventually became a #1 hit on Christian CHR radio in 2009; according to R&R's chart, it stayed at the top position for three weeks by February 13, 2009.[4]
The band has toured with the David Crowder Band and MercyMe and headlines their own dates throughout the United States.[1]
