His new single "(How Could You) Bring Him Home," is the first from his upcoming album Love & Pain due to impact radio June 26th. The track, produced by Happy Perez (Frankie J), Jeff Smith and Milk Dee (from First Priority Music) reveals a softer side of the singer unbeknownst to listeners on "F**k It." Eamon gives a heart-felt testimony on "How Could You," which deals with the pain of betrayal. He says the song was a perfect fit for him. Eamon says, "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 in June.
A 22 year-old singer/songwriter from Staten Island NY, Eamon has been recording since the age of 9, performing with his father's Doo-Wop group (Eamon and the Elations). He recorded Love & Pain with the help from producers Milk Dee - who produced a large part of the debut album, including the hit "F**k It (I Don't Want You Back)", along with Jeff Smith, Needlz of 50 Cent's fame and executive producer Nat Robinson. 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 going through love and pain. He adds, yet life is good, "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. I want everybody to be able to relate when they hear this record."
