End of the Addison Road
Published 02 August 2012
Addison Road are bowing out after 10 years together.
During their decade on the stage, the band produced the powerful songs "What Do I Know of Holy", "Hope Now", "This Little Light of Mine" and "All That Matters".
Band member Jenny Simmons said in an announcement on the band's website: "As a band, we have collectively decided to put a definite end to Addison Road. I hate break-ups, but this was as beautiful as a split can be!
"The guys were tired of living out of buses and leaving their families behind. In our case it was taking a toll on our marriage to raise our daughter on the road, work together, and then try and be married at the end of the day.
"After our 2010 tour with Tenth Avenue North and Matt Maher, it became clear to each of us that God was releasing us from Addison Road and ushering each of us as individuals into new seasons."
But farewell to the band doesn't mean farewell to music - at least not for Jenny.
She's working on her solo project, "The Becoming", which is due for release on 12 February 2013.
The first radio single from the album will be "Heaven Waits for Me".
Jenny is excited about her first post-Addison Road project.
She says, "I believe in every single word and note on the album. I believe this project is exactly what I am supposed to say to the world, and I'm so excited to share it with everyone."
