Tenth Avenue North is featured in the Jan-Feb 2009 issue
of Devozine, discussing why reading the Bible and being
grounded in the word is so important. Mike Donehey told Devozine,
“I try to incorporate scripture into my life, in every moment of every day. I
want it to be something that’s hidden in my heart, something that has tamed my
heart and has taught my heart how to feel. We need to wrap our emotions around
truth, not the other way around.” Tenth Avenue North went on to explain the
struggles that each of the band members personally have when dealing with
scripture. For more information about Tenth Avenue North please visit: www.tenthavenuenorth.com.

(Nashville, Tenn.) May 30, 2008 - Singer/Songwriter/Worship Leader Matt Maher, has plenty of reason to look up. Not only is his current, self-written radio single, “Your Grace Is Enough” continuing to climb the radio charts, but tomorrow afternoon (Sat., May 31, 2008), his new album, Empty & Beautiful, will launch into space on NASA’s Space Shuttle Discovery Mission STS-124, which is scheduled to launch on from the John F. Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Maher’s current single at radio, “Your Grace Is Enough,” is No. 4 at Billboard Christian AC-Monitored and AC-Indicator, as well as No. 6 at CRW AC.
On Maher’s 12-track, Essential Records debut album, Empty & Beautiful (4/8/08), he breaks open the two simple words in the title, through songs that are both corporate and reflective; driving and soft; each one telling the story from a different perspective. Empty & Beautiful was co-produced by Matt Maher and Jeff Thomas, except for, “As It Is In Heaven,” which was produced by Ed Cash (Chris Tomlin, Bebo Norman, Bethany Dillon). Maher describes the heart behind his Essential Records debut, “The realization of our own emptiness without God is both a moment of sadness, and a window to joy, which opens to something so much bigger and more beautiful than ourselves. To lay down one’s life for the Gospel in service of God and neighbor, is a reflection of the beauty of God. That is our charge as Christians, and that is where these songs came from.” Maher is still involved in local church ministry at St. Timothy Catholic Community,in Mesa, Ariz., as well as working closely with two national Catholic ministries, Life Teen, a worldwide Catholic youth ministry, and Adore Ministries, based out of Houma, La.
