Deana was raised in a Christian home. Her father was a pastor from the time she was 6 years old. Deana began to sing in the church at the age of 5 and was leading worship at the age of 8 years old. Many children her age wanted to grow up to be a nurse or a teacher, but Deana always wanted to be a part of a music ministry. At age 8 she came home from school one day, and with no previous musical training she opened the hymn book and began to play an old hymn called “Trust and Obey” on the organ - she truly had a musical gift from God.
Through high school Deana had a tug toward music that would not go away. She enhanced her gift with musical training. She graduated from EPBC with a B.Th., attended Abbottsford Bible School music program, and traveled with various music teams. Deana’s excellence was rewarded with a music scholarship. Deana studied music every opportunity she had, including Toronto’s Royal Conservatory.
She is presently a worship leader at Bethel Church in Stratford, Ontario, Canada. Deana lives and breathes to worship God, and it is her desire to see people radically changed through praise and worship.
For Your Glory is Deana’s debut album, and features a collection of personal songs that take you on a journey marked at times by pain, loss, anger, doubt, fear and questions, but also forgiveness, healing and hope that God is always there, always loves us, and will always use our experiences for His glory.
The album has a contemporary feel with amazing drum and guitar driven songs, but it also has a softer side.
