Ex Hawk Nelson Lead Singer Jason Dunn To Release First Solo Album Abandon Progress

 

 

Jason Dunn has announced that his debut solo album, Abandon Progress, will be released in May – Just in time for summer festival appearances and a fall tour. The album can be pre-ordered now atwww.jasondunn.bigcartel.com.

After nearly a decade with Christian rock band Hawk Nelson, frontman and founding member Jason Dunn departed the Grammy and Dove Award nominated group in May 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. The title of my record, Abandon Progress, really summarizes my life as of late, in more than one way.”

An eclectic mix of pop, punk and rock, Dunn spent the month of December in a Nashville studio writing and recording Abandon Progress with Grammy nominated songwriter and producer Aaron Rice (tobyMac, Mandisa, Rachael Lampa) at the helm.

Dunn has 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. For more information on how you can help, visitwww.jasondunnfoundation.com.

“I’m really excited to go out on the road again this year,” says Dunn. “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.”
