Deana Hoyles is a musician, singer-songwriter of contemporary Christian music.
Singer, songwriter, musician, God worshipper and the mission to love the way God does.
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 Master’s College 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.
To record an album has been one of Deana’s greatest dreams. Her life’s experiences with pain, abuse, trauma, but also healing and forgiveness, have led Deana to deal with it the best way she knew how, and that’s through writing music. This first Album “For your Glory” is a testimony to Deana’s perseverance and dedication to God in the face of pain and disappointment. God has shown himself to be Deana as being a constant friend. Her desire is to glorify God with every word of this album.
