HELLO, WELCOME TO ABOUT INSIDER! MERY, YOUR JOURNEY FROM YEREVAN, ARMENIA, TO BECOMING A PROMINENT SINGER/SONGWRITER AND DANCER IN THE UNITED STATES IS QUITE REMARKABLE. CAN YOU SHARE WITH OUR READERS WHAT INITIALLY IGNITED YOUR PASSION FOR SINGING AND PERFORMING WHEN YOU MOVED TO THE U.S. AT THE AGE OF 3?
I’ve always wanted to be an artist ever since I can remember. My mother’s aunt was a well known artist from Armenia and her musical prowess really inspired me. She motivated and encouraged me to pursue a career in music. So, I did my research to find a solid team and I began embarking on my musical journey.
YOU BEGAN YOUR MUSICAL JOURNEY WITH THE GUIDANCE OF RENOWNED VOCAL COACH LIS LEWIS, KNOWN FOR HER WORK WITH MUSIC INDUSTRY SUPERSTARS. HOW DID THIS MENTORSHIP INFLUENCE YOUR EARLY YEARS IN MUSIC, AND WHAT VALUABLE LESSONS DID YOU LEARN FROM HER?
I’ve always been a firm believer in having the right team and doing research. Lis really helped open my eyes, taught me new techniques and gave me insight which has helped to propel me forward.
COLLABORATING WITH MULTI-PLATINUM MUSIC PRODUCER ANDREW LANE IS UNDOUBTEDLY AN EXCITING MILESTONE. CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT YOUR CREATIVE PROCESS WORKING WITH HIM AND HOW IT HAS SHAPED YOUR MUSICAL STYLE AND VISION?
The music writing process was done with my producer who has been of immense help. He has taught me to become a business woman and has helped me find my direction in music. The writing process involves brainstorming ideas that end up on paper, and then matching the lyrics to the desired melody.
YOUR LATEST SINGLE, “JUS DANCE,” CARRIES A MESSAGE OF RESILIENCE AND NOT LETTING NEGATIVITY HOLD YOU BACK. COULD YOU SHARE THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THIS SONG AND HOW YOUR PERSONAL EXPERIENCES INFLUENCED ITS CREATION?
Everything I write is inspired by my personal experiences. JUS DANCE is about letting loose and ignoring all the naysayers in your life. Negativity is poison so lose it by dancing it off.
IN YOUR JOURNEY AS AN ARTIST, WHAT HAS BEEN THE MOST MEMORABLE OR REWARDING MOMENT SO FAR?
So far the most remarkable moment has been my experience at the East West studio where live instruments were incorporated into my song. This made me very emotional because I’m very fond of all the instruments used, especially the saxophone.
WHAT’S SOMETHING WE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT YOU THAT MIGHT SURPRISE US?
Due to financial difficulties I made a haste decision and became a pharmacy technician. But I soon realized that my interests lie elsewhere- namely, in music.
