Terrell Howard is a 24 year old singer/songwriter bred from Flatbush, Brooklyn New York, who began crafting his art at an early age. He attended the Professional Performing Arts High School in NYC, while simultaneously receiving vocal training at the prestigious Julliard. Upon graduation from high school, Howard was accepted to the highly-competitive, Berklee College of Music.
In 2003, Terrell Howard took a leap of faith, when he declined the offer to attend Berklee, in lieu of signing a major label recording contract with Arista Records. However, within a year, Howard was released from Arista with a slew of other artists due to the merger between Arista and BMG. Not one to be deterred from his dream, Howard decided to continue his foray into the music industry as a songwriter, while developing his own talent to pursue another recording contract. His songwriting ingenuity has landed him opportunities with R&B superstars, Usher Raymond, Slim of 112 and more. His smooth vocal skills and artistry gained the likes of Missy Elliot, along with the songwriting collective, The Clutch (Keri Hilson is a member), songwriter Sean “The Pen” Garrett (Beyonce, Mario et. al.), and the late Shakir Stewart, former VP of Def Jam recordings. Howard lists Timberland, Babyface and Rodney Jerkins as hopeful future collaborations.
As Terrell Howard strives for greatness, he is not simply wishing for his dreams to come true, but he is making his dreams a tangible reality.
