Karla Drader 

Bringing her 15 years of worship leading experience, Karla Drader returns with a fresh breath of inspirational songs on "waiting for you".  She has gained a reputation for honest and moving performances, sharing her talents and love of God through music in worship services, as a teacher, as well as at many retreats, cafes, weddings and other special events in the community.


Produced by Andrew Horrocks (Thousand Foot Krutch, Hello Kelly, Stephanie Israelson, Vineyard Music), Karla's third album, "waiting for you", consists of eleven original worship songs and features some extremely talented musicians including Andrew Horrocks (One Hundred Days), Tony Lind & Darryl McWaters (Hewitt) and Bruce Ellis (Vineyard Music Canada). Karla hopes that these songs will satisfy a wide range of musical tastes, bringing encouragement, enjoyment and healing to those who hear them.


From folk, to rock, to stripped-down acoustic prayers, "waiting for you" is sure to move the listener into times of introspection and worship through honest conversations with God. With sincere and uplifting vocals, Karla expresses her desire to live a life that delights her Creator. Inspired by personal experiences, scriptures and hymns, Karla's lyrics reflect a joyful acknowledgement of what God has done in her life and a longing for deeper closeness with Him. "Sharing our experiences with one another promotes community, and brings benefits to us all. Being able to share my heart and prayers through music is especially fulfilling because it can communicate on a deeper level."

The first single from the project, "O Most High", derives its lyrics from Psalm 9, giving unadorned honour and praise to God, the Most High. "Love Conquers All" is a thoughtful ballad, reflecting a yearning for God's love to overcome our desire to settle for less than God's best. The hymn-like "Be to Our God" takes the listener through the journey of placing our sins on Christ, and worshipping him for the freedom and healing we receive. "Resting in Love" is an upbeat song with a country feel, a celebration of God's unfathomable love.


Karla's musical experience and unquestionable passion are bound to make "Waiting For You" an enjoyable listen. Make sure you check out this fresh breath of inspirational music.
