Born and raised in Chattanooga, TN, T-RAN has shared stages with many national artists: Shania Twain, Monica, Kirk Franklin and Kool & The Gang, to name a few. The boy who started out singing on the kitchen table at the age of three, has grown into a full-time master of his craft as a singer/songwriter, musician and producer.

Pastor T-RAN and his wife, Alexis Gilbert, have been married since 2014 and just had their first daughter Amoré Rose Gilbert in June 2019. The couple has logged many miles together on the road while juggling their individual careers, all while they strive to keep God and family at the top of their agendas.
Never forgetting his struggles as a youth and his calling in the body of Christ, Pastor T-RAN has taken his life-affirming message to the streets and even teamed up with Dr. Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, for the “Season of Non-Violence Tour.” T-Ran’s positive message and music is penetrating lives around the globe--and he has only just begun!
