Justin Terry was born and raised in a musically talented family. His parents are both singers and his dad is an incredible musician and songwriter. Naturally, Justin would feel the lure of his music heritage as he grew older. "I never really cared about singing or playing guitar until I was about 18. I never took vocal classes in school and never dreamed I would be a singer," Justin chuckled. "It just became a growing desire from about 18 on. God is so amazing, how He works things out and puts people in His will when they are willing. I always want to do what He wants."
At 19, Justin accepted an evening disc jockey position at the multi-award winning Southern Gospel station, Praise 96.3 in Knoxville, Tennessee. Working for the legendary J. Bazzel and Mrs. Mull was an amazing experience and birthed the desire to sing Gospel music. "I used to sit there for 6 hours a night, just playing the best quartets in America. I'd sing along sometimes and started realizing that, although it certainly wasn't a great quality at the time, I could sing some of the same notes my favorite bass singers were hitting," Justin explains. "I would, actually, get to learn from a couple of those incredible bass singers in the years to follow."
In 2006, Justin would take his first singing position as bass singer for the newly formed group, Cross4Crowns. He grew into his role during his years there and learned technique from two of the biggest names in gospel music, Tim Riley and Jeff Chapman. Justin's voice seasoned quickly and he obtained a sound beyond his years. He spent 6 years with Cross4Crowns before feeling the call to his next step. That's what led Justin to where he is today.
"I had wanted to make a solo project for years. When things started falling into place and doors started opening for me to do some solo work, I knew I really needed to pray about leaving the group," Justin noted. "It's definitely a leap of faith, heading into a solo career. But I've always seen that when God takes me to it, He will take care of me and open every door. I'm so excited about the future He has!"
