Indie Soul/R&B artist Treasure is already making a name for himself. Hailing from North West London and raised in the countryside. The Brit has garnered extensive playlist spots, BBC airplay, and a cover feature with Wonderland Magazine. Now with his new single out titled ‘Isolation‘. As an artist Treasure brings forth a change sound but a song reflective of our times. You can check out my interview with music artist Treasure below…
THE RECLUSIVE BLOGGER: So, first things first… How are you? How has lockdown been for you? How have you had to adjust creatively?
TREASURE: There’s been loads and up and downs. My mind’s been all over the place. I’ve tried to be easy on creative myself and I’m taking my time with things.
THE RECLUSIVE BLOGGER: You released the track acoustic accented R&B electro track ‘Isolation’ earlier this summer. What’s the backstory of this song? How was the writing and recording process like for it?
TREASURE: I created this after spending 3 weeks, isolated at home. There was no real process, I just wanted to express how I was feeling at that point in time.
THE RECLUSIVE BLOGGER: Earlier this year you released the ‘Suffocation & Air’ EP. What was the concept behind that collection? What was the entire creative process like?
TREASURE: The creative process involved doing some physical activity or every day and using this as inspiration.

TREASURE: I actually haven’t performed as Treasure.
THE RECLUSIVE BLOGGER: What is one the album you could listen to over and over and never get tired of?

THE RECLUSIVE BLOGGER: How do you feel social media has played a part in your growth as an artist? Do you think it’s a necessary evil?
TREASURE: None, really. I don’t think it’s too important at the moment. I’m interested in the art not the social media aspect…
