Finally bringing the music to the world, MATHclass is the debut album by MATHENEE TRECO from season 11 of American Idol!

Hello friends!

My name is MATHENEE TRECO. I am an artist who is striving to achieve a dream; a dream to share my music with the world.

I am a proud Bahamian-American who is honored and humbled to have strong ties to my community and heritage through my amazing family, who continue to believe in me. It is from this deep-rooted strength that I have formed a true sense of belief in big possibilities and my path in life. This path has led me to YOU. No dream can be realized alone. It takes a community of people who recognize that we are all in this together and we must support each other in ways that uplift the greatest depths of our spirit. I am blessed by this support from my family and friends…but now it’s time to expand that family and ask for your help to make my dream a reality.

'MATHclass'- My debut album, has been my reality for the past 3 years. I have been writing music every single day and I finally have created an album that I am proud of; one that represents ME as an artist.

This year, I was fortunate enough to be a finalist on American Idol and had a unique opportunity to have my voice be heard across the country. My journey on Idol was overwhelming and yet it was one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences ever. After my elimination, I got back to work on 'MATHclass'; refreshed and rejuvenated.

The album is currently in production and is a mix of my favorite genres of music including R&B, pop-rock, hip hop while always being influenced by my Caribbean roots. For me, 'MATHclass' is about lessons learned.

So. This is where YOU come in. I need your help to finish the work and share my music with the world. Money raised will go towards my studio-time, mixing, mastering, album production and promotion. For those of you not familiar with how Kickstarter works, if I do not reach my intended goal within the 30 days, I don't get anything. Not one penny, and that would be sad. :( And if I am so blessed to have you all contribute more than the goal :) the money would be used towards more distribution and advertising, and a promotional tour that's already in the works;) 

Please take a few moments to watch my video, listen to my music and share this Kickstarter page with YOUR families, friends and colleagues.

I would be so grateful if you decide to contribute to my album.

Be sure to check back to this page for new videos, updates on the process and productions, sound clips of the upcoming album, and much more.
