Meet Treya — a Brooklyn-based musician recently discovered by Amazing Artists USA. From the moment you hear her sing the first note, the warmth and strength of her uniquely textured voice will resonate with your soul. Her “voice is compared to Fiona Apple, Billie Holliday and Nina Simone. [She…] has the power to move audiences to tears with her dynamic range, emotional depth, and grace.” Amazing CEO Paul Campbell signed her as the very first Amazing Artist, after which her first major show was playing Taiwan Music Night at SxSW 2015 alongside some of the biggest names in Taiwan, including Dwagie, OVDS, and Toffee. She captivated the audiences at SxSW which is leading to big plans in Taiwan, as well as the USA and the UK.
TaiwaneseAmerican.org’s Ho Chie Tsai chats with Treya about her personal story and journey through music. Her upcoming showcases in NYC and LA as a sponsored artist are only the beginning. She has plans to perform around and explore Taiwan in the near future. It is our pleasure to introduce an amazing artist, Treya!
Ho Chie: Hi Treya! It is such a pleasure to chat with you. We pride ourselves in knowing what’s happening in Taiwanese America, but you kind of popped out of nowhere! You’ve got an amazing voice! Tell us a little about yourself.
Treya: Hey Ho Chie! It’s great to connect with you and the Taiwanese American community, thanks for reaching out! I was born in Taiwan and raised in New York, just outside the city. I’ve been living in Brooklyn for the past few years and spent most of my time working within the hospitality industry. In my free time I did write and play music but kept it mostly to myself and friends. I was recently discovered by this amazing company which has supported me in transitioning to being a full time musician. With their help I am able to branch out a little more and be in contact with fine folks like yourself.
Treya has upcoming shows in LA and NYC. Be sure to catch her at one of these performances if you’re in the area:
