R&G (Rhythm & Gospel) artist, Terrell “T-Rex” Simon has announced the release date for his upcoming EP “In His Image”, which is set to be released on July 14, 2015 under Daddy Rich Entertainment, I-Tunes, Amazon and other digital outlets.
After singing back up for R&B artist Lyfe Jennings, this led to opportunities for T-Rex to work with artists such as Neyo, Wyclef, Anthony Hamilton, John Legend and Dave Hollister. Feeling like he has paid his dues, he is ready to take on his first solo project and shed light on T-Rex the artist.
“This EP means a lot to me,” T-Rex says, “It’s making a statement and telling the world that I am ready for the next level.”
With his first single, “In His Image” (same title as the EP), set to be released on May 31, 2015, T-Rex is anticipating that the project will be a very successful independent endeavor. Releasing the set on his own label, Daddy Rich Entertainment, he is out to prove that you don’t need a major record deal to get your music to the masses.
“‘In His Image’ just talks about how we can do anything because we are made in his likeness. First thing I have to do in the morning before I catch myself slipping is stand still, let go and let God. Then I’m living. The song is just simply saying put God first and anything is possible,” said T-Rex.
On this EP, produced by Burnie Stevenson, T-Rex touches on a little bit of everything music wise. There is R&B, Hip Hop, gospel and Jazz. He says he loves all kinds of music and wanted to have a little bit of everything on the project.
“Burnie is a real musician with great experience that I admire and I wanted to work with someone who would be able to make it all come together and make sense,” said T-Rex.
T-Rex will be performing in NYC at Alicia Keys’ Keep a Child Alive benefit concert on May 22nd, SOB’s (Soul Sessions) on May 31st to celebrate the release of his single, Toshi’s Living Room on June 30th, in addition to doing some promo in Atlanta and DC this month. You can also catch him doing spot dates with Lyfe Jennings.

“My music is for everybody. Yes I am a gospel singer but I think lovers of any genre can identify with the message in my songs. These songs do not have a color or special music section. I like to call it R&G (Rhythm and Gospel) because music can be R&B or Hip Hop but the message is still gospel. I believe you can play this music on a Sunday morning going to church or on a Saturday night out on the town,” said T-Rex.
