Terrance Simien is the eighth generation Creole descending from among the earliest known Creole families that were documented for having settled in St. Landry Parish in its Mallet region. The young maestro was introduced to music through a piano in his house, as well as at the Catholic Church choir and in his school band programs in which he performed in the trumpet.
