Jonathan Steingard (born June 23, 1983 in Canada) is a Canadian musician, singer and songwriter known as the lead vocalist and lead guitarist for the Christian pop-punk band, Hawk Nelson which he joined in October 2004, replacing the former guitarist David Clark. He took over vocal duties upon Jason Dunn's departure in March 2012. He has also played guitar live for Skillet, Justin Bieber, Beyoncé, Falling Up, Shania Twain, and others.

His side projects include September Satellite, The Natural Anthem, two albums entitled Fox Run, Under The Canopy and an EP Atlantis. Steingard's first principal side project, Fox Run, released on October 25, 2006, utilizes a large number of instruments for a unique sound. His second album Under The Canopy, released on November 25, 2008, is rather an emotional alternative one rather than the pop-punk genre of Hawk Nelson, while three singles from Under The Canopy was featured in the Atlantis EP released on November 11, 2008, and available for free download.[1] Steingard served as a judge for The 13th and 14th Annual Independent Music Awards in 2014 and 2015, and his contributions helped to assist the careers of upcoming independent artists.

The oldest of three children, Jonathan started playing the guitar at the age of 9. He plays PRS Guitars, Matchless and Metroamp Amps, Pedaltrain Pedalboards, and GHS Strings. His current touring PRS guitars include an SC245, a Mira, and a Chris Henderson Model. Steingard married Jessica Hubbard in March 2007.[2][3]
