As Hawk Nelson frontman Jason Dunn pursues a solo career, the band will keep the name with guitarist Jon Steingard taking over the lead singing roles.
Steingard has been with the band for eight years and grew up with Dunn. The band will also retain bass player Daniel Biro and drummer Justin Benner. I had the pleasure talking with Steingard right after Dunn announced his departure and here’s a link to the story.
“The chemistry we share as a band cannot be fabricated. In other words, we know we have something special here,” Biro said in a statement. “We’re very excited to be working on a bunch of new songs for everybody. It’s a new day, and we want to make the most of it.”
The band is working on a new record and Steingard said, “these are some of the most inspiring songs we’ve ever worked on.”
Dunn is working on a solo project called Lights Go Down. Here’s a clip of a song he is working on. I’m liking what I hear.
