Torrey Carter (born from Michigan) is a male R&B singer from the 2000s.
After performing for Missy Elliott in 1998 in New York’s Greenwich Village, Torrey was signed to her record label, the Goldmind Inc., becoming the first male artist signed to the label.
In June of 2000, he released his debut single “Take That” (which also featured guest-vocals from Missy Elliott). The song peaked at #87 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #14 on Billboard’s Hot R&B\Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart, staying on the chart for 19 weeks.
Due to the poor chart performance of the single, Elektra Records dropped Torrey from the record label & shelved his debut album “The Life I Live,” although a promotional copy appears to be exist.
After that, nothing much was heard from Torrey until 2006 when he helped co-write & produce Nina Sky’s song “Building a Vibe.”
By 2007, he released two singles “Pause” & “Get it Girl” on his MySpace page which generated enough buzz to make a new album, but those plans never materialized & Torrey went on to pursue other musical opportunities.
In September of 2012, Torrey released a new single called “ReBbrth”. These days, it appears if he is still active in the music business according to his Twitter page.
