Biography

After nearly a decade with Canadian pop-punk band Hawk Nelson, frontman and founding member Jason Dunn shocked fans early in 2012 with the announcement that he would be departing the successful group in pursuit of a solo career.
Now residing in New York with his wife Lenay (host of MTV’s 10 on Top), Dunn spent the first part of 2012 crafting his debut album, Abandon Progress. The forthcoming longplayer is a blend of pop and rock, with musical influences that range from Maroon 5 to Boys Like Girls to Hawk Nelson.

“I left Hawk Nelson because the vision I needed a fresh start” explains Dunn of his controversial departure.
And in addition to his musical pursuits, Dunn has an unlikely passion that he hopes that fans will embrace. Says Dunn, “I want to find a cure for diabetes. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when I was 12 years old. I am so honored to be able to be a positive role model for teenagers and young adults trying to cope with this disease.” A portion of proceeds from every concert will be donated to the Jason Dunn Diabetes Foundation, to help financially support young adults and families with children living with diabetes.
Dunn racked up an impressive list of accomplishments during his tenure with Hawk Nelson, including GRAMMY®, Dove and Juno Award nominations, international touring, a #1 video on VH1 and appearances in NBC’s hit series American Dreams (as The Who) and the 2005 feature film Yours, Mine and Ours (starring Dennis Quaid and Rene Russo). With the launch of his solo career, Dunn is ready to add to the list.
