After nearly a decade with Canadian pop-punk band Hawk Nelson, former lead singer Jason Dunn opened a new musical chapter in his life after departing the Grammy and Dove Award-nominated group in May 2012 to pursue a solo career.
"It's been quite an interesting couple of years for me," says Dunn. "I quit a band that was doing fairly well for themselves and I started all over again, working my way from the ground up."
An eclectic mix of pop, punk, and rock, Dunn released his very first single entitled "Insecurity" in 2013 and hit the road with "The Water Tour" supporting Nine Lashes. "That passion I had when I first started touring has returned to me, maybe more than ever. As well as writing a record, I've been putting together a great rock show for my audience that I hope they will enjoy," said Dunn.
Dunn eventually released two albums: The Grand Adventures Of Hank Neilsen and Abandon Progress. He also launched the Jason Dunn Diabetes Foundation, a non-profit organization whose mission is to enhance and change the lives of children and young adults living with diabetes.
In early 2015, Dunn formed Lights Go Down, a pop punk band based out of Los Angeles, CA with a sound that can be compared to bands like Neck Deep and The Story So Far.
