Singer, songwriter Jecy Born on January 3, 1982, in Bogota, Colombia. As a child, Jecy learned how to dance typical Colombian music and performed various times at Palacio de Justicia, the presidential house located in the heart of Bogota, Colombia for Danzas Carolina. Then she began to perform in family reunions.
At a very young age, Jecy had a great interest for music. When her mother realized Jecy had a interest for music she would encourage Jecy to practice songs by artists Vicente Fernandez and Ana Gabriel.
She attended Colegio la Merced, a public all girls' school. When she was 12, Jecy and four other classmates started their own band and sang in class gatherings, imitating artists like Mecano and Ricardo Montaner. The group split up the following year.
In 1997, Colegio la Merced presented El Festival de la Canción an annual music contest. Classmates competed amongst each other to find the best singer who would represent their current grade level in the competition. Jecy didn't get the chance to represent her class until 1999, songs like "Inevitable" and "Que Vuelvas" by Shakira took her to win first place in the semi-finals and second place in the finals, it was her first time performing in front of a big audience.
In 2000 Jecy and her family immigrate to San Jose, California, USA.
In 2001 she started logging her thoughts and emotions and was unintentionally fostering her ability to write song lyrics, her first written song "Mi Vallenato" and in 2002, she writes "Interes".
In 2007, she released Cosas del Amor, her first Pop Balda and Colombian rhythms like tropipop album with the release of the lead single "Dices" following "Mi Vallenato" and "Solo Contigo", it was produced and recorded in Colombia.
In 2008, Cosas del Amor was promoted in different local radio and TV stations in Cali, Colombia following a series of concerts in San Jose, California for different music festivals.
In 2010, Jecy released her second album Jecy (Subtitle), produced by Jecy and Julian Gil. This album presents a rock-oriented sound while retaining pop influences on a few tracks; such as lead single "Interes" (rock) and its follow-up "Que Debemos Hacer" (pop-rock). This album was also produced and recorded in Colombia.
All this wouldn't be possible with out the help of her family specially her mother and siblings.
