On November 28, a preview video of a new single titled "Million Hands" was released on her official YouTube page. She was born in Long Beach, California and currently lives in Los Angeles.[citation needed]

Cooler Kids[edit]

Before Treasure's appearance on the Pussycat Dolls reality TV show, she formed the music group Cooler Kids with producer and performer Kaz Gamble.[citation needed] Treasure had the opportunity to work with several record labels, including DreamWorks Recordings, Audacious Records and Teenacide Records, and released a debut album, entitled Punk Debutante, in which the chart-entering single "All Around the World" was published.[citation needed] She has co-written and sung on songs "The Grass is Greener" and "Common Ground" by Dave Audé and Tall Paul.[1] Sisely Treasure was also a member of all the all-girl pop-punk, j-pop-ish group The Holograms, at which time they had a chart buster on Billboard top garage Hits "Are you ready for it".[citation needed]

Dancer[edit]

She was among the first original crew of kids that made up the dance troupe Sparkids performing at the Forum during the LA Sparks games and Laker games.[citation needed] In her early teens she was part of one of the premier young dance companies in the world, under the wing of renowned choreographer Marguerite Derricks.[citation needed] She has also danced in various commercials and for several other major choreographers and dancers such as Terry Beeman, Wade Robson, Wes Veldink and Galen Hooks.[2]

Search for the Next Doll[edit]

Treasure appeared on the first season on the CW reality show The Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search For The Next Doll. Sisely was often praised by Robin Antin for her uniqueness and individuality.[citation needed] On the show, she was a couple years older than the others and said she at times felt like an outsider. She was the third girl eliminated after being told her vocals were off and she didn't live up to her rock persona. She shook up the show's fanbase and fellow contestant and eventual winner Asia Nitollano when she responded to the contestants' discussion of each other's dancing abilities by stating that she thought that Asia danced "like a drag queen", shortly before she was eliminated, causing the other contestants (with the exception of Nitollano) to burst out laughing. She then very briefly joined the Paradiso Girls.[citation needed]

Sisely and the Safety Pin-ups[edit]

After Search for the Next Doll she joined another group named Sisely and the Safety Pin-ups and released a cover of "Do the Robot" which was voted coolest garage song by Garage Rock.[3] She was also featured in a Yahoo article which named her the "Punkycat Doll".[4] She was also one of the members of the Gunn Metal Grey dance group.[5]

Shiny Toy Guns (2008 - 2010)[edit]

On August 12, 2008, it was announced that Sisely Treasure was the new female vocalist for the band Shiny Toy Guns, replacing Carah Faye Charnow.[citation needed] Her vocals are featured on the band's second album Season of Poison, released on November 4, 2008, and the band's covers of "Burnin' for You" and "Major Tom (Coming Home)" that were featured in commercials for Lincoln cars. Prior to the release of Shiny Toy Guns' third album III, former band member Carah Faye Charnow returned to resume the role of lead female singer for the band, and Treasure was not featured on the album.
