Combat Veteran & International Songwriter dedicates his life to one thing: inspiring the creation of social change in our world.
In 2014, TerryJosiah founded the Creative Agency MusicLifeChange to cultivate social revolutions through the influence of Music.
Born into an unstable family life, he quickly learned his balance in a chaotic world; writing became paramount and music became an essential piece of his joy. He cultivated both; applying them to reach, connect and inspire like‐minded individuals.
At 18 years old, TerryJosiah turned his desire to create change into action when he enlisted into the United States Army just six days after the terror attacks on 9/11. He served two tours in Iraq and was an integral member in the Battle of Fallujah.
After an honorable discharge, he attended UTEP where he studied music and creative writing. In 2010 he won College Songwriter of the Year (TX) and repeated the award in 2011. He received his BA in both Music History and Creative Writing from the University of Texas at El Paso in 2012, and within two years founded MusicLifeChange. As a millennial visionary, he understands the need for spreading a positive message through new and innovative ways.
“in our current society, if we don’t see the good then we must be the good, in order to provide the positive balance our world needs.”
