Vocal powerhouse and Troy, NY native Terrell 'T-REX' Simon started delivering soul-stirring music at the age of six, when he discovered his gift singing in the church. He got his professional start in New York City while performing with a traveling choir throughout the region. In 2003, his connections led him to platinum-selling singer-songwriter/producer Lyfe Jennings who took him on the road with his act. T-Rex began touring with such major artists as John Legend, Beyonce, Anthony Hamilton, and Musiq SoulChild. As a huge fan of Dave Hollister, coming up he adopted a similar sound, patterning his voice after the vocal sensation, and later touring with him as a backup singer. His TV appearances include Jimmy Kimmel, Good Morning America, David Letterman, Jay Leno, 106 & Park, and The Monique show, among others. The pivotal moment in his career came when he appeared on MTV Unplugged with Neyo, which gained mass exposure for him.
After sharing stages with everyone including Wyclef Jean and Mario, T-Rex started managing artists like Lyfe Jennings, and road-managing vocalist Shaliek while mentoring and developing him and other talents such as Day 26. In 2015, he teamed with artist, producer, and singer Lamar Casey who helped executive produce and co-wrote his debut album. T-Rex also teamed with Bernie Stevenson (Isyss, Kelly Rowland), who took his riveting raw vocals and created the soul-stirring track, "In His Image". The new EP, released Christmas of 2015, is set to be T-Rex's launch pad for a fresh start. Entitled "Hashtag 8 'New Beginnings'" (referencing a biblical number for just that-a new beginning) the songs reflect exactly where he is in life.
He brings to the industry his own musical genre, 'R&G' for rhythm and gospel, which beautifully infuses his natural church boy upbringing with his love of Hip Hop. "In His Image" is in rotation at Music Choice and gaining more radio play daily. The song's immediate appeal points to a fast growing musical phenomenon (exampled by 100,000 Instagram followers to date). He has recently performed for BET matters showcase in NY, opened up for Lyfe Jennings, Bobby V, and Ke Ke Wyatt. His album "As the world turns" will be released later this year. His music is available on every digital platform including Spotify, Pandora, iTunes, iHeart Radio, XM Satellite, and SoundCloud, with hard copy CDs available on Amazon.com.
