Eric Punzo

Rising Toronto artist Eric Punzo is excited to announce the release of his latest single, "Only Love" on Friday March 22nd under BAMO Records via Coalition Music (Warner Music Canada/ADA) on all streaming services. This heartfelt song explores the universal theme of love and exposes Punzo's talent on this stripped back acoustic track. 

Known for his powerful vocals and vulnerable lyrics, Eric Punzo has been making waves in the Canadian music scene. With his distinct blend of pop and R&B influences, Punzo's music resonates with audiences of all ages. "Only Love" is a testament to his talent and showcases his continued growth as an artist.

Of the track Punzo says, “This track circles around the idea of lack of fulfillment whether personally or in relationships. Feeling sort of like I’ve been waiting around for something enlightening to happen in order to get life on the right track, but never being able to actually achieve that. Almost like I can never be enough for anybody or myself & my expectations.”

With a gritty, alt-pop sound, Toronto’s Eric Punzo offers his own brand of passionate, introspective songwriting. With his first EP release “Gridlock”, Eric is poised to make a powerful impression on the international music scene, while expanding his fan base through both full band shows and intimate acoustic performances. Following up in 2024 with his newest acoustic single, “Only Love”, Punzo continues to showcase his signature soulful vocals and heartfelt lyrics. 

Managed by Toronto-based Coalition Music, Eric continues to hone his craft with producer Steve Molella (Finger Eleven), with more releases planned on Molella’s label, BAMO Records. Eric’s single, “Find a Way To Love (Somebody Else),” is a dark-hued banger, and followed his warmly received singles, “Criminal,” “Nauseous,” and “If I Told You That I Missed You.” With the release of his debut EP “Gridlock”, Punzo explores the dark themes that come with finding yourself in your 20s.

Of the EP, he says, “This is a collection of songs that represent the feeling of being stuck. Questioning the progress of my life, career, relationships, if all the hard work is even worth anything. There’s a certain energy in this project that relays the emotion of helplessness but ironically, also empowerment.”

Like many artists of his generation, the concept of genres doesn’t seem to apply any longer when it comes to Eric’s sound. What matters most is using all of his skills to create something fresh and exciting. As he draws inspiration from a vast array of artists ranging from Mac Miller to City & Colour, expect Eric Punzo to keep finding innovative ways to bare his soul through his music.
