Treya Lam is a classically trained singer, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter whose cinematic songs and ethereal vocals are built on Nina Simone-inspired piano, meditative guitar and lush chamber arrangements.
Treya’s debut album, Good News, was recently released with a sold-out show at Joe’s Pub via Kaki King’s label, Short Stuff Records. Produced by Kaki (who
plays multiple instruments throughout the album), the album was recorded with an array of talented female musicians, most notably Catherine Popper (Ryan Adams, Jack White, Norah Jones) on upright bass, and mixer Erin Tonkon (David Bowie, Esperanza Spalding). Mastered by Sarah Register, Good News is an instant classic, full of the kind of songwriting and raw talent that has never gone out of style, as well as a message of love and longing. Because as Treya says, “It’s never too late to have a happy childhood.”
Treya has shared stages with Yo-Yo Ma and the late jazz pianist Billy Taylor as well as her frequent collaborations with Kaki King.
