    Hawk Nelson

    Hawk Nelson’s song, "Drops In The Ocean" was inspired by the realization that God is for us, not against us. Lead singer, Jonathan Steingard explains, "It was the idea of thinking of our sin and shame as something that's just this tiny thing that's totally engulfed by this ocean of God's grace, love and forgiveness."

    Hawk Nelson first formed in Ontario Canada in 2000 and now includes band members Jonathan Steingard (Lead Singer), Daniel Biro (Bass Guitar, Vocals), Micah Kuiper (Guitar), and David Niacaris (Drums.) After years of playing as an independent band, the group signed a record deal, and released their debut album Letters to the President, in 2004. Hawk Nelson followed that with Smile, It’s the End of the World (2006), Hawk Nelson Is My Friend (2008), Live Life Loud (2009), and Crazy Love (2011)- an album that was inspired by the book Crazy Love by Francis Chan. Daniel Biro is the sole remaining original band member. Jonathan joined the band in 2004.


    For the band’s album Made (2013), Hawk Nelson bared their heart and soul following a year of changes- one of those changes being a new lead singer. "What a journey it’s been, this past year. So many unexpected twists and turns. God has been so faithful…. it’s amazing to look back and see what He’s done. This year the band I've been a part of for nearly a decade, and I expected to see laid to rest, was miraculously given a fresh start, full of new hope, new purpose, and new excitement," Jonathan says. "They’re the hard days. The days I doubted myself. The days I wondered if we were going to make it. They’re the days that reinforce God’s goodness. We need those days, so when He works it all for good in the end, we can stand back and say… 'Thank you God, look what You've done. You are God.'''

    Even though Hawk Nelson has endured some changes, the band assures listeners they are still the same band they enjoyed for more than a decade."We’re still that high energy band that a church or youth group would book if they want to have a fun youth night," says Jon. "We want to take what we've been and not leave it behind, but grow it a little bit and hopefully be a lot more intentional about what we’re saying."
