Biography

My name is Megyn Hermez. I wasn’t born with that name, but somewhere in the midst of my chaotic life I chose to reinvent myself. I’m an artist of many crafts, but music and dancing is what brings me to the spotlight. Before I go any further, I want to acknowledge that most bios are written in third person to make the artist appear untouchable and at a distance. What drives me to become one of the largest artists on the face of this planet is the opportunity to connect with as many people as possible in one lifetime. I don’t believe paying someone to write my story is valid way to connect with my fans and audience members. So hello all, it is a pleasure to be at one with you. I began dancing at 8 years old, and for 10 strait years I trained in a studio for 40 hours a week preparing for an adventurous future on stage. I won national titles every year, and danced for many big names at a young age including Mariah Carey, Jessie McCartney and The Goo Goo Dolls. I dropped out of high school at 16 to pursue this dream. One year later I traveled to Barcelona, Spain where I took 2nd place at the Prix De Espana World Cup Dance Competition with the American Dance Company. And I said to myself, “All things are possible.” Although music was in the background of my life, it would soon become the forefront. At 19 I walked into an audition 20 minutes late, shaming myself of all professionalism. I didn’t know what I was auditioning for so I excused my tardiness. The casting took place in what appeared to be a damn near crime scene, and the fact that it was in Detroit didn’t make it feel any more legitimate. The next day I got a call back. I had cast the part, and I was going to begin dancing for R&B legend Charlie Wilson. I didn’t know who Charlie was, but millions of other people did. I realized that three months later when I found myself dancing on some of the largest stages across the globe. All of this from a craigslist audition. One year into the tour it hit me. I was performing with a national recording artist, my best friends were the band, music was taking over my entire atmosphere, and here I was acting like I didn’t know a note from a chord. I was quiet about my hidden talents as a musician. Nobody knew that I began writing poetry at 9 years old or that I spent my whole life as an alto in the school choir. I connected with the music director on the tour and was offered my first of many record deals three songs into the album. I ignorantly turned down the offer and began this journey of a recording artist in solitude. Today I am the owner of Gypsyland Records. I released my first album Music Is Music in 2013. The album got several placements, and radio play. Steal My Crown was released shortly after and charted on the Mediabase Activator Top 100 charts for 10 strait weeks, just 200 spins shy of the BillBoard Charts. I cut the campaign and decided to go for more of an authentic route with my music. I won’t write about sex, drugs and rock n roll, but I will write about the person who overdosed because of it. My upcoming EP, more, is written from a dark place touching on topics such as depression, adultery and abuse. Some might find it disturbing, but other will find it brilliant. I am an artist, and my product is art, not vanity. I continue to travel the world as a recording artist and dancer, and my mission is to impact for the greater good of humanity. Thank you for reading, I hope you’re inspired.

Lyrics

Mary Jane

Written By: Megyn Hermez

She lingers in my brain after she's gone
A day away from her is one day too long
I finally found a way to make my escape
I come back soon enough, still in a daze

{Pre- Chorus}
I fly so high into the sky
My wings can beat the weather
In the zone, she's in my bones
With her I like me better

{Chorus}
Mary you don't know what you do to me
It's scary how you even get through to me
I get lost in my thoughts, there's a new way to concentrate
Mary Jane, to you I gravitate

She medicates me she takes over my mind
She changes everyday she comes in all kinds
As if you disagree that she's from above
So can you please explain why I should be judged

{Pre- Chorus}
To fly so high into the sky
My wings can beat the weather
In the zone, she's in my bones
With her I like me better

{Chorus}
Mary you don't know what you do to me
It's scary how you even get through to me
I get lost in my thoughts, there's a new way to concentrate
Mary Jane, to you I gravitate

When I breathe her in
She sinks deep beneath my skin
I'm suddenly unstoppable
Nothing is impossible

{Chorus}
Mary you don't know what you do to me
It's scary how you even get through to me
I get lost in my thoughts, there's a new way to concentrate
Mary Jane (x6)

Tread The Water

Written By: Megyn Hermez

She’s deep into her darkest thoughts
Can’t even tread the water
Her eyes are drowning in her cries
And I’m her helpless daughter
(x2)

I get a little angry at times (x4)

She’s deep into her darkest thoughts
Can’t even tread the water
Her eyes are drowning in her cries
And I’m her helpless daughter
I wish that I could bring her back
But every day is a battle
No one could understand
The pain I feel when she unravels

I get a little angry at times (x4)

Steal My Crown

Written By: Megyn Hermez,Quick Cash

I got these bad boys tellin’ me that I could get it
But I wouldn’t let ‘em hit it anyways
Because they do it so good then they hurt me so bad
And I don’t need another heartbreak
You can stare from a far, flash your money and your cars
I ain’t impressed- I get it on my own
I’m a little rich bitch with chains on my hips
Pleased to be the star of the show

What you know about them bad girls (x4)

-Hook-
I always stand up strait
Look fear in the face and
Finish the race- I don’t stop
Nobody can bring me down
Nobody can steal my crown
My wings can fly so high
I soar like an eagle
You fucked up people can’t stop me
You can’t bring me down
Nobody can steal my crown

I got these arabs runnin’ they mouth
Talkin ‘bout how I’m ruining the family name
If I’m such a disgrace get up out my face
I made an ALIAS the very first day
Don’t get me wrong I love my kind
When they wanna be kind, but that’s never the case
They wanna grudge me, judge me, do everything but love me
Well, every dog has their day

What you know about them bad girls (x4)

-Hook-
I always stand up strait
Look fear in the face and
Finish the race- I don’t stop
Nobody can bring me down
Nobody can steal my crown
My wings can fly so high
I soar like an eagle
You fucked up people can’t stop me
You can’t bring me down
Nobody can steal my crown

(Bridge Ft. Quik Kash)
Been in the lead so long, they like where we at?
Been had the crown so long its like my fitted cap.
Tell me why you on my back? Wanna be living how im living,
Jealous how I be getting, spitting, and spending.
Tell em It's Leader's only, been on this flight so long
no telling where we going.
They hatin something but never knowing/
So while you plummeting, my cheddar growing!

-Hook (x2)-
I always stand up strait
Look fear in the face and
Finish the race- I don’t stop
Nobody can bring me down
Nobody can steal my crown
My wings can fly so high
I soar like an eagle
You fucked up people can’t stop me
You can’t bring me down
Nobody can steal my crown

Runaway (Sweetest Goodbye)

Written By: Megyn Hermez

But all I adore is to runaway

(chorus)
Free me, I’m ready to fly
This just might be the sweetest goodbye
Kiss me, baby one last time
This just might be the sweetest goodbye

(Verse 1)
I wish that you could hold me closer
I don’t leave your bed
Why can’t the clock tick slower?
You don’t ever seem to leave my head
Tell me that you’re gonna miss me
I’m about to drift away
Foolish to fall into
A game I wasn’t meant to play

(chorus)
Free me, I’m ready to fly
This just might be the sweetest goodbye
Kiss me, baby one last time
This just might be the sweetest goodbye

(Verse 2)
Baby you make me nervous
You life me up so high
I can’t come down to the surface
And still I hang you up to dry
You know that I’m gonna miss you
But you know that won’t keep me here
Foolish to fall in love
Restriction is my fear

(Bridge)
We go through these ups and downs
And when we’re down we wonder if we’ll ever be up again
Tried to ignore the sound within myself
I tried to pretend
That I could be more than a runaway
But all I adore is to runaway

(chorus)
Free me, I’m ready to fly
This just might be the sweetest goodbye
Kiss me, baby one last time
This just might be the sweetest goodbye
