HAWK NELSON FRONTMAN JASON DUNN TO BEGIN RECORDING DEBUT SOLO RELEASE AS: “LIGHTS GO DOWN”

Jason Dunn, vocalist for the Christian rock group Hawk Nelson has set the wheels in motion to record and release his first solo album. The project will go under the name Lights Go Down. Dunnʼs band, Hawk Nelson hail from Ontario, Canada and have been signed to Tooth and Nail Records since 2004. Since that time the band has racked up 5 fulllength
albums and over 600,000 units sold.
Studio veteran Steve Kravac has been selected to produce, engineer and mix the release, which will be entitled “Abandon Progress”. Steveʼs history with the Tooth and Nail family is well documented. From a stellar run with M.X.P.X. culminating with their RIAA gold recording “Slowly Going the Way of the Buffalo” to his Dove Award nomination for O.C. Supertones Modern Rock Alternative Album of the year “Supertones Strike Back”, Steve has always blazed a trail of artistic originality and commercial success in the environs of the Christian music and entertainment world.
Dunnʼs solo project has been on deck since 2010 and with sessions now locked down for the month of January 2012, his vision is about to become a reality. Drummer Justin Benner of Hawk Nelson will also be participating in the sessions. Information on a street date and label partner for the project will be released shortly. Recording will take place in Vancouver B.C. at Profile Studios and mixing is scheduled for Hipposonic which is the former home of the iconic Mushroom Studios (Heart, Bachman–Turner Overdrive, Sarah McLachlan)
Said Steve “the opportunity for both Jason and I as Canadians to work in Vancouver seemed like refreshing and appropriate setting to create his new project, sometimes you have to come home to find your path”. Jason added, “I’m very excited to make my record in Vancouver. It’s such an honor to do the record with Steve. I’ve been a fan of his work for years.”
