Hawk Nelson          

Christian Rock Band Known for "Drops in the Ocean" & "Diamonds"

Hawk Nelson is a Christian rock and pop-punk band that formed in Peterborough, Ontario, in 2000. After switching the band name a few times (they were previously known as SWISH and Reason Being), they settled on Hawk Nelson.

They continued to perform and tour independently in Ontario, Canada, before being signed with Tooth & Nail Records, largely on the recommendation of Trevor McNevan, the lead singer of fellow Tooth & Nail bands Thousand Foot Krutch and FM Static. McNevan, also from Peterborough, Ontario, is credited with discovering the band. In July 2004, Hawk Nelson released their debut studio album Letters to the President.

After several personnel changes, the current lineup of Hawk Nelson is Daniel Biro (bass guitar, backing vocals), Jonathan Steingard (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, keyboards, piano, synthesizers), Micah Kuiper (lead guitar, backing vocals), and David Niacaris (drums). Hawk Nelson has received a nomination for a Grammy Award, as well as numerous nominations for the Gospel Music Association's Dove Awards.

Hawk Nelson, who portrayed English classic rock band The Who on an episode of NBC drama "American Dreams," released their eighth studio album, Miracles, in April of 2018. Miracles featured the single "He Still Does (Miracles)."
