Terrence Duane Richburg, Sr., is a contemporary Christian writer, author, musician, producer and an award-nominated national gospel-jazz recording artist. He is a native Washingtonian talent renowned for his God-given musicianship and has appeared on more than 35 albums.
His musical roots stem from being the son of former Atlantic recording artists The Richburg Singers and nephew of the late jazz vocal legend Ronnie Wells. From an early age, his adaptable and authentic style and "smooth" delivery have amazed audiences.
He was characterized as "The Quincy Jones of Gospel" with his familiarity with all musical styles and genres. Terence is a musician and a producer, performing in the gospel and jazz communities throughout the country. He has served in church leadership and ministry for more than 30 years at more than 30 churches in the Washington, D.C. area.
Through the years, Terrence has worked with several groups that have offered the very best in inspirational, jazz and uplifting gospel-jazz music. He founded the RichEscape Music, LLC, a Stellar Award-nominated independent record label, production, and publishing company. It highlights his unique style of music and embraces contemporary gospel and praise and worship genres, collaborating with national artists, brilliant producers, and exceptional musicians.
Richburg is a gifted poet and freelance writer, drawing inspiration from God. He has written many articles for online publications and is the creator and author of the popular E-zine, JazzGospelCentral.com.
He wants to publish more of his works, including children’s books, novels, short stories, topical studies, and essays about one of his greatest loves, music.
His goal is to help people with valuable lessons he has learned along the way and leave a legacy that will benefit others practically and spiritually. He hopes this will eventually inspire others to become authors too.

He proclaims accepting Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior is his most significant life accomplishment. Richburg’s goal and resolve are to get “all of the music” entrusted to him out to the public, or at least as much as possible so that “God’s work” can be seen, heard, felt, and lived from within.
