T-McCrae is an award nominated singer/songwriter born in the Bronx, New York. Growing up in
the Bronx wasn’t easy for T-McCrae as his family had their fair share of financial and emotional struggles.
Although these hardships brought much suffering, “T” turned to music as a healing mechanism and has
been able to channel this pain through the gift of song. “If you listen to my music, you’ll see that it’s a
reflection of where I've been, who I am now and where I'm determined to go,” says T-McCrae.
Drawing on life experiences, T-McCrae’s music style can best be described as passionate,
emotional, soulful, educating and at times political. He enjoys creating pop records but feels the greatest
connection to R&B, Gospel and Jazz as he appreciates how these genres were bred out of pain and
turmoil and speaks to the soul. He draws musical inspiration from artists such as D’Angelo, Jonathan
Mcreynolds, John Legend, India Arie, Mariah Carey, Anthony Evans, PJ Morton, Faith Evans, Frank Ocean,
Eric Benet, Musiq SoulChild, to name a few.
What T-McCrae enjoys the most about being an artist is the writing and recording process as well
as the challenge of coming up with new ways to vocally express himself. He also loves being able to touch
lives through song. “My greatest desire is for my voice to be used to heal and touch hearts and souls
through music. I want to be able to encourage hope, provide spiritual strength and empower through my
music…there’s no greater gift than to hear someone say ‘your voice moved me’.” As a testament to his
songwriting ability, T-McCrae recently received a songwriter music award nomination from Out Music Awards.
When he’s not writing and recording music, the New York native can be found brushing up on his
acting chops. Proving to be an overall entertainer, T is currently studying acting techniques in preparation
for upcoming roles. He also enjoys open forum speaking regarding his advice and encouragement on
overcoming challenging life experiences.
T-McCrae is definitely the next singer/songwriter to watch!
