Hailing from the most enviable and historic musical city in the world dubbed “Hitsville USA,” this self-taught musician began his musical career on the trumpet. As his love of music began to develop, Terry added piano, and rhythm guitar to his skill set. The last instrument learned was bass guitar, but quickly became his instrument of choice. In his early career Terry was bass player for various R&B groups down at Detroit’s “Hitsville” USA in the early Motown years. It was there that he met former Motown engineer John Lewis who later trained him to become a recording engineer and songwriter. After Mr. Lewis opened “The Sound Suite” recording studio Terry began as engineer for some of the Detroit’s most memorable artists in Gospel and Secular music. Terry’s experiences as a bass player for contemporary Christian, gospel, and R&B artists are all uniquely interwoven into his distinctive sound which he calls “breaking the rules jazz.” In 2003, Terry was introduced to Wayman Tisdale. Wayman mentored, encouraged, and evaluated his music becoming the catalyst, which convinced him to release his first CD. “Eternal Life” is dedicated to him. “Desert Wind” features Terry on five, six string, a modified piccolo bass and piano.
