Tenth Avenue North Tops New Christian Artists of 2008|

With nearly 60,000 in physical sales, Tenth Avenue North was the best selling new Christian artist of 2008, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The CCM band was also the only new artist in 2008 to break the 100,000 digital download mark since the May 20 release of its debut album, Over and Underneath, and the only new artist to have claimed two No. 1 radio singles (with “Love is Here” and “By Your Side”).

“We’re just trying to find our way in the Christian music industry, ‘dodging traffic at the intersection of art, faith, and commerce,’ as Jon Foreman once put it,” states the four-man band consisting of lead vocalist Mike Donehey, drummer Jason Jamison, bass guitarist Scott Sanders, and electric guitarist Jeff Owen.

“What we’re hoping for with this music that we’re making is to not just entertain people. I think it’s safe to say that we already have plenty of that,” they add.

“What we’re wanting is to see people encounter truth.”
