Terry was born on May 13, 1957 in Kingston, Ontario. His mother's love for music was a big influence in Terry's life.

Terry won his first competition in the year 1999 in Kingston, Ontario, and his second competition in Orillia, Ontario in the year 2000.

When one considers Terry has only been performing as a Tribute Artist to the King since 1998, this is an amazing accomplishment.
Terry has been blessed with such an incredible, strong voice, that it's to his advantage when he performs Elvis' powerful songs, such as "How Great Thou Art", "Hurt", "Trilogy" and more. On September 9, 2004, Terry was given the distinct honour in performing some of Elvis' Gospel songs in the St. Andrews Church in Manhattan, New York, just two blocks away from where the World Trade Centre once stood. This beautiful 1847 structure was filled to capacity, with many who were involved in the unforgetable tragedy of September 11, 2001. He opened the September 11 Peace and Tranquility Ceremonies with the song "I Believe" and ended with "You'll Never Walk Alone". His voice filled the once silent church. It was truly and emotional and moving ceremony.

To many of his fans and friends he is known as "The Man with the Voice", but also known as a gentle Teddy Bear, because he has a heart of gold.
