What is your name?
Eric Punzo

Give us a little bio about you.
25 year old singer songwriter from Toronto, Ontario

What made you go into music?
The way it made me feel more inspired than anything else in my life. I decided to spend time working on my craft, and here we are now – releasing music that I am proud to share with the world.

Who were your influences growing up?
City and Colour, Panic! At The Disco, Slim Shady, Bon Jovi, Linkin park

Your new single ’Nauseous’ is out, tell us more about the single.
‘Nauseous’ is my second official release, and I am super proud of how it turned out and is being received. There is minimal production on the song, because we wanted the vocals and lyrics to be the spine of the track.

What is the meaning behind the single?
I wrote this song a few weeks into a new job working at the bank. I was completely out of touch with myself and super anxious about the position I put myself in. This new life direction made me feel sick…it made me feel literally Nauseous. This song is about the realization that I was beating myself up when I saw others living their dreams, while I was stuck in a never ending cycle of mediocrity. This song helped me break out of that cycle and forced me to move towards living my dream.

Who did you work with on the single?
Steve Molella (Finger Eleven) my friend/producer/co-writer

Describe the track in two words.
Vulnerable, Deep

What was the writing and recording process like?
I wrote the track at home as I usually do then brought it over to Steve. We cleaned it up and jumped right into it. Fun fact – the lead vocal is actually from one of the first takes because of how much emotion I had put into it.

Will we see an EP or Album and if so, what can we expect from it?
We’re still deciding how we want to put out these collections of songs. You can expect every song to have its own identity while keeping a common theme flowing throughout.

What can we expect in 2022?
More music of course but most important I want to get back on stage regularly and play in front of people, new faces especially

When you are at a gig, what are 5 things you cannot forget?
Water/tea, batteries for my tuner, extra strings, beers for after performance & extra shirts
