Terrance McCoy’s life of transparency begins at birth when he was brought into the world surrounded by difficult and uncertain circumstances, leaving Terrance without parental presence at a young age. God’s grace brought Terrance to live with his grandparents and siblings, singing with his grandmother at church and spending summers at church camps. Unknown to his grandparents, Terrance and his siblings endured physical and sexual abuse from outside the home that gave way to broken family relationships and addictions. Terrance’s musically-inclined grandmother planted a seed for Terrance, and as a teenager he poured himself into music. Eventually, it became God’s way of rescue for Terrance in several life-defining moments. Terrance’s silent addictions showed themselves in adulthood through destructive ways as his anger and shame led him into a deep depression, leaving him homeless. It was at this rock-bottom moment that God spoke clearly to Terrance and gave him strength to overcome his addiction and to change his situation. Terrance began a road of recovery and redemption as Louisiana became his new home, and a job change led Terrance to return to music and writing once more. Varied and soulful, Terrance’s voice speaks of pain yet abounding hope – and it’s this hope that drives him to be transparent in his story and in his music. Transparency, Terrance’s debut album confronting and exposing his past, releases September 2017.
