Tenth Avenue North (the group took its name from a major road in the West Palm Beach, FL area where the band was originally formed) have become one of the brightest lights on the contemporary Christian music scene. Led by Mike Donehey’s vocals and songwriting, the group released Broken Down in 2002.
They all come from church backgrounds and families, and therefore, are not satisfied saying the same old things in the same old ways. What they’re hoping for with this music that they’re making is to not just entertain people. What they’re wanting is to see people encounter love and truth. And they want this love in hearts to last. I guess you could say they’re done just trying to get emotional from blast beats and hip guitar lyrics. Instead, they desire to be cut to the heart. To be honest, genuine, and faithful to what they believe is truth.
