Her passion for music was evident from a young age, and in 2013, her professional music career took off in Idar-Oberstein, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany, under the mentorship of James Williams, an Afro-American singer, songwriter, and music teacher. Williams provided Meggy SiL with valuable vocal training, helping her hone her skills as a singer.

In May 2023, Meggy SiL completed her EP titled “Love Undiluted,” which is set to be released on the 16th of June 2023. The lyrics of the EP were inspired by the memory of her late brother. Drawing from her own experiences of growing up without a mother and the pain of losing a sibling, Meggy SiL has crafted a collection of songs that explore the themes of love, authenticity, purity, and integrity. Through her music, she aims to create awareness and promote a “love attitude” in our everyday lives.
