Trey was born in Richmond, v*rginia but he was raised in Petersburg, v*rginia. He also spent about 7 years living in Baltimore, Maryland due to his mother marrying a man in the army. When he was a child, he did not receive any rigorous voice or piano lessons but instead was engaged in the normal activities for a child of his age. His mother, however, seeing his ability, encouraged him to develop his singing talent by entering him in local talent shows, many of which he won. With these victories, he began to make a name for himself. By age 15 Trey’s fame enabled him to meet his producer and mentor Troy Taylor (producer), a veteran music producer who has worked with artists such as Patti Labelle, Lionel Richie and Whitney Houston. Impressed by the tenor`s voice, Taylor encouraged him to focus on a career in popular music. During the summer, Troy and Trey would go to New York and New Jersey to work on songs and recordings. Trey Songz moved to Jersey City, New Jersey after graduating from Petersburg High School to focus solely on music. Taylor, in turn, focused on teaching his protégé music history. "We would go to the New York studio every day, and during the drive, he’d play me all sorts of stuff, like Steely Dan," recalls Trey. "When it came time to learn about falsetto, he’d play me Prince. When it came time to learn about soul, he’d play me Motown." Trey eventually became Taylor’s vocal production assistant. Working with other artists in the studio gave Trey valuable technical experience, and prepared the young singer for his own career.
