Torrey Carter (nicknamed T.C.) is an American R&B singer. He gained popularity after signing to Missy Elliott's The Goldmind Inc. as the first male artist under the label. There, he began recording for his debut album, The Life I Live, which was led by the single "Take That"[1] (US #87;[2] US R&B #14[2]). However, due to the lack of mainstream success with the lead single, the album was shelved and he departed from Goldmind.

In 2006, Carter co-wrote and helped produce Nina Sky's song, "Building a Vibe"; footage of the recording leaked via YouTube that same year.[3] By 2007, Carter's MySpace singles ("Pause" and "Get It Girl") had accumulated enough buzz for him to prepare a possible album, however the idea was scrapped and Carter went on to embark on other musical opportunities.

He has been recently featured in hip-hop producer, Shawneci's recent mixtapes, Icecold Collection (Vol. 1-2).[4][5]

On September 25, 2012, Carter released the R&B womanizing-themed "ReBirth" via iTunes and Amazon.[6] In November 2012, a music video for the single leaked via YouTube and had accumulated over 50,000 views in just one month;[7] however, due to undisclosed reasons the video was removed and has since then been re-uploaded.[8]
