MUSICREVIEWS HAWK NELSON Miracles Three years after their successful 2015 release Diamonds, Hawk Nelson offers their eighth studio album Miracles (April 6, 2018). The project came together in the midst of a period of challenge and change in various facets of life, both personally and professionally, for all four band members. The title track is a testament to how powerfully God moves even when it seems “every option [is] exhausted.” “We have the opportunity to open our eyes and see God working — that’s a choice we can make,” says frontman Jon Steingard. “I think that if we’re paying attention, we can see God is active in our lives in big and small ways on a daily basis.” Energy-infused, attention-grabbing pop melodies and solid vocals carry Hawk Nelson’s message of the real hope in Jesus that overcomes all struggle throughout the album. “God has always been in the business of surprising us, and it’s when we reach our end that he often shows up,” bassist Daniel Biro says. “He still is doing miracles, big and small, and this album, Miracles, is proof of it.”
