Bronx native Alternative Soul singer TreZure Empire has been on fire in the NY underground for some time now before her break out performance this past November 2010 at Japan’s Annual Music Week as part of her She Shivers In Tokyo tour.
Aside from being 1st lady of the Brooklyn hip-hop collective New Rap Order (NRO), TreZure taught herself how to sing in Brazilian & Portuguese. For most it is TreZure’s amazing voice and stage presence that continue to draw comparisons to such greats as Lenna Horne, and Billie Holiday in many blogs and reviews. Her voice exudes Strength, Passion, and levels of vulnerability that makes her music a tapestry of raw emotion.
Co-signs from some of the industry’s most prolific crooners, Bilal & Van Hunt, have brought some overwhelming label attention. Simply put…this chick can ‘sang!’
Last summers indie collaboration “We R Giants” (see video) with Carolina MC Caktuz & fellow NRO member Cavalier, helped spark demand for her in the UK wih its soulful viral video and TreZure’s powerful vocals.
Still feeling the heat from her incredible show with Bilal for his A Night Wth Bilal (see video) concert this past February, our friends at N Salon just dropped this mini-doc on TreZure. An intimate portrait of this rising songstress.
