Treasure Guffy Artist Bio

Treasure Guffy is a true “ California girl” born and raised in the Imperial Valley, California. Treasure excelled in school with honors classes, sports, and music all through her formative years.

Her musical experiences started as early as age 3, as she would sit at the piano, her grandmother’s heirloom, and play with her dad by ear. She joined her first youth pop/rock band at the age of 10, where she played keys and sang lead for various functions throughout the county. She continued throughout high school to be active in cheerleading, singing lead and playing keys for various bands, and singing the National Anthem at countless civic and sporting events throughout Southern California.

After graduation, Treasure went to a 2 year junior college and studied law and music. She became dance captain for her college cheerleading team, and continued to diversify by singing with various rock bands and also a Big Band Jazz Orchestra known as the Imperial Valley Jazz Band. After moving to L.A, she was soon an opening act for recording artists such as Teena Marie, Cheap Trick, The Allman Brothers, and BTO.

A job with the Band "Unity" brought her to Las Vegas. During her first years in Las Vegas, she opened up for many of the cabaret headliners of that era, such as Earl Turner, Loretta Holloway, The Schinta's, and Denise Clamente. These performances eventually led her to a year- long engagement at The Hyatt Campo Del Gulfo in Spain, as well as numerous cruise ship performances around the world.

After her cruise ship tour was over, Treasure spent some time between Miami and Atlanta working with Hit Producers “Cool and Dre”, as well as Rico Wade and Sleepy Brown of Organized Noize (Outkast, The Goodie Mob, Cee-Lo). Waiting on career plans that didn’t materialize, her soul searching led to the composition of what would become her 1st album- “This Life of Mine”. She returned to Las Vegas and resumed a varied career singing, acting, and dancing- originating a lead role in The Production Show Musical “TEASE”. She also spent time in New York filming the movie “Destination fame” with some of American Idol’s first seasoners, which 2 of her original songs can be found on the soundtrack. Treasure teamed up with Amir Bayyan from the legendary group “Kool and the Gang” to bring her debut album “This Life of Mine” from previous concept to reality.

Currently Treasure continues to write, arrange and produce her original songs. She is also developing as a song stylist and branching out into new genres of music. She recently headlined with a 32 piece symphonic orchestra opening up for Gary Puckett, singing some of her original music. Fans of great music can usually find her at one of the major hotel/ casinos in Las Vegas.
