Hawk Nelson Bio:
Originally from a mid-sized suburb of Ontario, Canada, power pop/punk foursome Hawk Nelson calls itself "diehard believers in the transformative power of dreams, planning a course in musical expression underwritten by Biblical rooting at a young age and following through with vivaciousness each inch of the way."
As lifelong fans of pop/punk music the guys knew the steps it took to make a band and invested every ounce of energy into Hawk Nelson. "We defined our sound, cut an indie disc and started getting it in the hands of people," explains Jason. "We toured all around Toronto- from youth groups to colleges to arcades- and sought to get kids into it."
After growing up listening to bands like TFK, MXPX and Slick Shoes, their contract with Tooth and Nail Records was the fulfillment of a huge dream. After four years and some growing, they're still dreaming, but in a more rock way. Influences of Goldfinger, The All-American Rejects, Sum 41 and Green Day can now be heard in their music.
