Debut Single '(How Could You) Bring Him Home' Impacts Radio June 26th
Jive/Zomba recording artist Eamon readies himself to release his 2nd album "Life is Good" due in stores August 1st. He has been known for his combination of raw Hip-Hop and smooth Doo-Wop and is what he calls "Ho-Op." Eamon's hit debut 2003 single "F**k It (I Don't Want You Back)" served as an anthem for anyone who has ever been done wrong by a lover. It was the #1 Best selling single in the U.S. on the Hot Single Sales Charts for 9 weeks and #1 on the Hot R&B Single Sales Charts!! Radio-wise it peaked at #5 on the Top 40 Rhythm chart, #9 on the Mainstream Top 40 chart and #16 on the Hot 100 Airplay charts!! Internationally he reached both Gold and Platinum success in major territories including the UK, Australia and Germany. With this international success, he won the Festival Bar Award for Most Successful International Artist of the Year in 2004!!
His new single "How Could You (Bring Him Home)," is the first from his upcoming album and is due to impact radio June 26th. The track, produced by Happy Perez (Frankie J), reveals a softer side of the singer unbeknownst to listeners on "F**k It." Eamon gives heart-felt testimony on "How Could You," which deals with the pain of betrayal. He says the song was a perfect fit for him. Says Eamon, "I think it's a perfect follow up [to 'F**k It'] and the people [Jud Mahoney, Nina Woodford, Zach Charlton, and James Earp] who wrote it for me hit it right on the head. I couldn't have [written] it any better." The video is directed by Lenny Bass and should hit the video channels around the same time in June.
A 22-year-old singer/songwriter from Staten Island N.Y., Eamon has been recording since the age of 9, performing with his father's Doo-Wop group. He recorded this album with the help from producers Milk Dee -- who produced a large part of the debut album, including the hit "F*ck It (I Don't Want You Back)" and Anthony Acid, who has worked with Ghostface Killa. Eamon takes a lighter approach to the subject of relationships this time around. Eamon says, "My delivery [on this album] is more mature, more the view of a young adult." He adds, "My goal is for as many people to hear my music as possible. I want people to enjoy my music and know that I'm here to stay. Life is good, I'm having fun. I want everybody to feel the same way when they hear this record."
