    Hawk Nelson

    Hawk Nelson first formed in 2000 in Ontario Canada. After years of performing 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. 

    There have been some changes within the band over the years. In 2004 Jonathan Steingard joined Hawk Nelson and is now their lead singer. Daniel Biro (Bass Guitar, Vocals) is the one remaining original band member and Daniel and Jonathan enjoy performing these days with fellow bandmates Micah Kuiper (Guitar) and David Niacaris (Drums).

    Hawk Nelson bared their heart and soul while creating the album Made (2013).

    "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. "The days I doubted myself. The days I wondered if we were going to make it. They are 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.'''

    Hawk Nelson released the album Diamonds in 2015. Songs like "Drops In The Ocean" and "Diamonds" point people to God's true nature and His refining power. The title track "Diamonds" is all about redemption and the moments in our lives that just don't make sense when we are going through them.

    "Sometimes trials and struggles enter our life and things can get really hard. In those moments it's easy to ask 'Where is God in this. What is God doing?' I believe the truth is that no matter what it looks like God is working behind the scenes and He's already turning things around to work everything out for good. That might look differently than we'd hope. But, we believe that God takes those trials and those struggles and He uses them to refine us and to make us stronger and to make us more like Him. Which is ultimately more beautiful," Jonathan says.

    Even though Hawk Nelson has endured change, 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 Jonathan. "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."
