Music Spotlight of October: Jerm Realadel
A Conversation with music recording artist & actor, Jerm Realadel
I: Jerm, thank you so much for taking the time to tell us more about yourself and your music. We know that you have a bunch of projects going on right now and we’re excited to let others know more about you and your work; but first, explain who you are and what it is you do.
J: Im Jeremy Zayas Aka Jerm Realadel. I’m a music artist, actor, and producer.
I: Jerm, when did you know that music or rapping was your passion? How long have you been into music creation?
J: I knew it was my passion because it was something I always loved to do growing up. I’ve been making music for a long time; rapping and singing since a kid but I’ve been taking music seriously and recording records, doing shows, etc., for about 4 years now.
I: Where do you see yourself in the future? What’s your ultimate goal?
J: I see myself as a well-known artist/actor in movies and talk shows. My ultimate goal is to grind hard and be successful with everything I do and also make a great living doing it.
I: So, outside of music you’re also an actor on a Philly based webseries called, “The Book Of Nimrod,” directed by Carla P. Morales. Tell us a bit about how you got involved in the project and your role on the show.
J: I got involved in “The Book Of Nimrod” by shooting one of my music videos with Herricane Morales and when I met her, she told me about TBON Audition. So I went to the audition and got chosen to be the character Silk.
I: When did you get into acting? Did it come natural for you or was it something you had to grow into?
J: I got into acting when I was chosen for “The Book Of Nimrod.” It was real natural for me. (laughs)
I: (Laughs) Okay okay. So, what other projects are you currently working on?
J: Im working on several singles and a new mixtape. I plan on doing a mini tour.
I: Alright, time for some fun questions. Ready? What music artist did you listen to growing up?
J: I listened to Big pun, Backstreet Boys, Nsync, Jada Kiss, Eminem, Destiny Child, Don Omar, Marc Anthony and a whole lot more. (Laughs)
I: Second question. Who’s your favorite actor or actress and why?
J: I Like Denzel Washington because he makes everything seem so real and natural and he plays a good role in every movie he’s in.
I: Yes, Denzel pretty much makes everyone’s list (laughs). Last one, who or what is your biggest inspiration?
J: Life and hard times inspire me to keep pushing and going hard for what I want and need to survive everyday. And that’s why I go hard with my music and everything I do with entertainment. So hopefully I can change lives and help the world financially one day.
I: If people want to find out more about you or stay up to date on everything you have going on; where can they find that information?
