Megyn Hermez Impacting Top 40/ Hot AC Radio



Howard Rosen Promotion (www.howiewood.com) artist Megyn Hermez is currently impacting Top 40/Hot AC radio with Steal My Crown.

Pop/ Rock musician Megyn Hermez is a twenty-three year-old wild card who captivates audiences from all walks of life. Her carefree and exhilarating stage presence expresses her passion for music and the people she shares it with. This Detroit native discovered her gift for music and writing poetry around 9 years old, 4 years after she had begun formal dance training. Inspiring others through her body language was always Megyn’s first priority, but these other talents wouldn’t go to waste.

In 2009 she found herself dancing on tour for R&B legend Charlie Wilson. By the young age of 21, she had already been seen on stages all over the world including The Grammy Awards, Lopez Tonight, Wendy Williams, Mo Nique, The Steve Harvey Hoodie Awards, Tom Joyner’s Fantastic Voyage, Essence Music Festival, Macy’s Music Festival and several others. All of this happened from a fateful craigslist audition in Detroit.

Shortly after her move to Hollywood, Megyn ventured back into world of melody. During this time she began recording her first album with no expectations, but as the saying goes ˜expect the unexpected’. Three songs in, she was offered her first of four record deals by an independent label, causing her to find her own spotlight. I was a dancer. I had no plans of making music my life, but it’s not something I could turn away from at that point. This was no coincidence, it was my calling for music, and God couldn’t have spoken any louder, Hermez stated.

Megyn released her album Music Is Music in March of 2013. Since then her single, Anxiety has been placed in Muffin Top – The Movie, and is currently streaming on multiple Internet radio stations including Pandora. In 2013, Megyn Hermez also started her own independent record label Gypsyland Records, and she recently released her hit single titled Steal My Crown.

Not too mention her candy coated sex appeal“many women are beautiful but not necessarily sexy“ always in fresh, endless supply, it may be difficult to travel beyond that¦. She credits growing up with her grandmother, movie star, Jeanne Crain, as a great influence over her unique of another time and world elegance, beauty and style. Growing up with Gram Jeanne (this is what she calls her grandmother) gave me a reference point that was very unique. I’ve built upon it and made it my own, but I realize the indelible gift of having her in my life“ not every little girl has a movie star’s closet to dress up in, but it’s more than that. It’s a grace, a presence“ my grandmothers hand comes out to write her name on Whats My Line“ you can tell instantly, just by her hand“ the huge ring, the way she gracefully writes, her very signature“ that you are in the presence of a movie star.
