Terry "Tējh" Johnson, a soulful singer and composer who initially got his start singing in the church, grew into a voice that later began singing background for several mainstream artists. After praying, searching, and waiting...Tried In Fire was born! Tried In Fire Band has fashioned an original sound that glides through the perimeters of soul, jazz, funk, blues and sentiments of gospel.
Music is my refuge. Music to me is God whispering the lyrics in my ear and playing my instrument as if each note had a soul...and performing like I was born to do so.
I would love to one day write music for other artists and eventually open my own music venue for artists all over the world to come and perform - and cause the hearts of the audience to smile.
I would start with myself and learn to believe in myself from an early age. I would trust that God created me with the gift of music to make the world smile.

What inspires me about music is being able to change the moods of those who listen to my songs...allowing God to use me to list others.
No matter how bad things seem...it will always get better.
Nervous, excited and fearless...in that order lol
I would love to see musicians actually networking and building each other up...it's not a competition. We all have a gift and there's room for us all to use our gifts.
I'm still trying to learn Drooble. I think it's a great concept and so far I like it.
What frustrates me most as a musician is when some don't take my craft seriously. Being a musician is diligent work - and at times hard work. Don't treat my passion and career like your hobby.
Yes, I love to support my local musician friends! I try to go to at least 2 shows a week that showcase new artists. I also try to support new artists by liking and following their social media profiles.
