History ::
Hawk Nelson is a Christian rock band from Peterborough, Ontario. The band has become very popular in the Christian music scene and was voted "Favorite New Artist" by CCM Magazine in their February 2006 Reader's Choice Awards. In 2006 Hawk Nelson won a No. 1 spot on VH1's top 20 video countdown with "The One Thing I Have Left" music video.

Prior to the formation of Hawk Nelson, Dunn, Clark, and Paige had formed the Peterborough-based group called SWISH (they also used the name "Reason Being" briefly), while Biro sang lead vocals in a four-piece group called the "Cheese Monkeys from Planet Nine" from Barrie, Ontario. In 2000, while named "SWISH" they released Riding Around the Park independently. On May 1, 2003, after the band changed to the current name, they released the EP Saturday Rock Action.

They continued to preform 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 major label debut Letters to the President. It was produced by Aaron Sprinkle and McNevan, who also co-wrote the album's fourteen songs. He has also appeared on some of the band's songs, as well as in their video for the song "California".

The band has achieved some success in the mainstream as well. They portrayed The Who on an episode of the NBC drama American Dreams, and they recorded a song named "Bring 'Em Out" for the 2005 motion picture Yours, Mine and Ours featuring Drake Bell. This song and another hit song "The Show" were both used on Sunday Night Football commercials. "Things We Go Through" from Letters to the President was also featured in Yours, Mine and Ours. On December 20, 2005 Hawk Nelson released Bring Em' Out EP.

April 4, 2006 Hawk Nelson released Connect Sets EP with six acoustic tracks including: "Bring Em' Out", "Thing We Go Through", and "California".

In October 2005, the band re-released Letters to the President, with new material including their cover of The Who's "My Generation", three acoustic versions of some of their hits, and a limited edition cover. Hawk Nelson plays the party band for the film Yours, Mine and Ours (2005). Their songs "The Show" and "Something on my Mind" were featured in the game Thrillville in 2006.

Hawk Nelson released a "Double Take" which includes selections from Letters to the President and Smile It's the End of the World in March 2007 and Holiday Trio EP in 2007. In 2006 Jorden Dean filled in for Jonathan Steingard on rhythm guitar and background vocals starting with Winter Jam 2006, then in late 2007 Dean departed from the band.
