Tenth Avenue North’s Mike Donehey talks Winter Jam 2014, a new record and more

Winter Jam 2014 has began in the first weekend with the second show in Charleston, West Virginia. The Tenth Avenue North frontman Mike Donehey spoke with WV Gazette promoting the event, but began by saying he’s not really a guitarist even though he plays one.

“I play guitar, but I wouldn’t call myself a guitarist. I have broken a lot of guitars. Does that count for something?”

“But I’ve broken a couple on stage, falling,” he said after blaming the airlines for most of the casualties.

Donehey then maps out a busy 2014. “We’re doing Winter Jam January through March. April, we’re going to record a new record. May, we’re going to the U.K. to tour. In the summer, we’ll do festivals and then in the fall, probably headline another tour.”

Three band members, including Donehey, welcomed new babies to their families in 2013, so a busy 2014 is part of the plan. Now it’s about singing and their faith.

“Here’s the deal: everybody is trying to accomplish something when they’re singing a song,” he said. “Whether you’re singing that she thinks your tractor is sexy or ‘Amazing Grace,’ you’re saying something.”

“They just want to entertain,” he says of some bands. “They want you to sing along with them and then go home drunk and happy.”

“We sing about things that have given us joy and set us free, that have freed us from pride, guilt and shame. How could you not want that for other people?”

The next show is in Charlotte on Sunday. Next week Jamtour heads to Alabama, Florida and Tennessee for four shows.
