Before becoming a successful musician, Draper had a construction business with a speciality in roofing.
Draper co-wrote the song "Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft", which was not only successful with his band Klaatu, but it also became a Top-40 hit, when The Carpenters re-made it in 1977. Draper also co-wrote the Klaatu song "December Dream" in 1981, which was a tribute to John Lennon.
He went on to record several solo albums in his home studio in Oak Ridges, Ontario after the break-up of the band in 1981. His former Klaatu bandmates Dee Long and John Woloschuk made appearances on his album Light Years Later, in 1997.
Later on in the 1980s he returned to his roofing business, and then developed a career as a restaurateur alongside his continued music work.
