Meet Jermany Coney! Her calling to music began in church. She was witness to how the power of music could inspire peace and hope. It’s only natural that Jermany chose to align her voice with Music Beats Cancer in effort to to do her part in the war on cancer.
What was your original calling to music? How did you start?
I grew up in a very musically inclined family. My dad was big on hip hop music and My mom loves gospel. I have family members that play drums, violin, piano,
Who or what is your musical inspiration?
Growing up singing in church and seeing how much music touched people was a huge inspiration. I saw at a young age that you could show up feeling defeated and then hear music that completely took you away from that. I saw it take people to a place of peace and hope. I knew then that music was powerful. It was very inspiring.
Which artist(s) do you look up to? Did any of them inspire you to experiment with your music?
I love Micheal Jackson and Beyoncé. I look up to them in so many ways. They absolutely inspire me creatively to push beyond my comfort zone .
Is there something new you’d like to try?
I love country music and I’d love to tap into that genre.
Why did you become involved with Music Beats Cancer? Has cancer directly or indirectly affected you?
I became involved in Music Beats Cancer because I have family members and family friends that have been affected directly by cancer. I love being able to be a part of something bigger than me. I wanted to raise awareness and funding in anyway that I could. Music Beats Cancer is an amazing organization and I hope to continue to be a part of it.
What is happening next in your music career?
Next for me is continuing to make music. I want to continue writing and I want to dive into the world of sync licensing so that I can create more music that tells peoples stories. I want to write for commercials, TV as well as film.
