Terry Linen, his known name in the entertainment world, has been singing since he was thirteen years old, when his grandmother discovered he had the talent for it. In 1993, he met Producer/Songwriter/singer, Anthony Red Rose, who recorded Terry’s first single, “Rainbow Never Touched the Ground” which was released on his Raggedy Joe record label. Since then, Red Rose Music has released several singles by Terry on the Raggedy Joe Label. Terry has toured North America and Japan (several times).

In 1999, Terry Linen recorded a remake of Whitney Houston’s “My Love Is Your Love”, which took his career to a higher international level. The song stayed on the New York Reggae Charts at number one for twelve weeks and spent twenty-eight weeks on that chart altogether. That’s not to say that Terry is a newcomer to the business — he has several songs to his credit — “Love Is Coming At You,” (featuring Capleton); and “Show Me Oh Lord”, “”That’s The Way It Is,” “Where Do Broken Hearts Go” and “Call On A Friend,” to name a few.

Terry has just completed his second album and again, Anthony Red Rose is at the helm as its producer. He is the producer of Terry’s first. This new project features a combination of various rhythms from reggae lover’s rock, culture and dancehall beats to pop and a little hip – hop. The aim was to please a universal audience with Terry’s melodic voice, smooth sound, playful and inspiring lyrics. The new album features approximately fourteen tracks most of which are original. He is also collaborating with artistes like Germany’s number one reggae artiste Gentleman and Red Rose, among others. The album will definitely make good listening for all the lover’s rock and dancehall fans, which already Terry has garnered a following. This one will definitely become a classic. With the release of his forthcoming album, you will get a chance to see a lot more of Terry, both on the road and in the videos.
