Inspired by Christian singer-songwriters Jeremy Riddle, Will Reagan, and Chris Rice, Canada's own Brad Guldemond is infusing worship music with his personal and personable brand of time-tested spirituality, performing passionate, piano-driven songs with a tremendous voice fueled by his faith, to share the heart of God through song. The singer-songwriter behind the 2013 album Overwhelm Us (winner of 2013 Covenant Award for Inspirational Album of the Year) has also been featured in projects such as World Vision's "This Is Our Love," contributing the song "Real Life Offering," and has appeared on TV programs like 100 Huntley Street.
"Two things in my life have always been a part of my life, God and music," Brad says. "Even in my grade 8 yearbook, when asked about my future aspirations, I wrote 'I want to sing and play the piano for God.'"
Brad's music comes from a place of intimacy with God, with each work fleshed out with words that reflect lessons learned from life and a desire to know God more. Prayerful lyrics like "When the guilt gets so heavy, and I just want to hide / Would your Spirit remind me, how you see me inside?" leads the listener to an encounter with God.
Naturally, one of Brad's favorite quotes from the Bible is a sentiment celebrated in his music.
"Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
don't try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
he's the one who will keep you on track." (Proverbs 3:5-6 MSG)
Currently, Brad is recording the follow-up to 2013's Overwhelm Us, which promises to explore an expanded, fresh sound fueled by the same heart to inspire, encourage and draw people closer to God.
