The Joys and Tensions of Musical Stardom with Matt Paige

This week, we’re diving deep into what it’s like to be young band moving towards stardom, as well as the tensions and joy that comes with it. To help us out, we’re turning to Matt Paige, former drummer and one of the founding members of Christian rock band Hawk Nelson. Matt is a thoughtful and articulate communicator and shares stories about the early days of the band, life on the road, setting boundaries for yourself as an artist, and the importance of spiritual community.

We discuss:

  • the early days of the band and the mystery behind their name
  • behind the scenes look at touring life
  • creating boundaries for yourself as an artist
  • Matt’s personal story of “life after Hawk Nelson”
