A fresh voice on the music scene, Namon Eugene is a self-described singer/songwriter who plays by his own rules and introduces his own personal perspective on everyday experiences through his music with sincere honesty.
That honesty and sincerity plays out in the lyrics of his debut single “You Would Be Sure” as he conveys a plaintive lover’s dissatisfaction with a one-sided relationship in need of closure or a motivating push.
The lyrics were inspired by a friend looking for clarity in a nebulous relationship that was stuck in a place of uncertainty, shared the Missouri City singer.
“He was calling me all that week about someone who wasn’t giving him all of what he thought they should be giving him. They were basically one foot out the door, and I said to him that night that if they are supposed to be with you, there would be no question, they would be sure about it. And that is how the title of the single came about,” he added.
The gifted songwriter immediately began to put pen to paper to pour out the song’s lyrics and began creating beats for the song on his cell phone. The second verse would be inspired a week later by the singer/songwriters own relationship challenges.
“Not only do I think that it is a good song, aesthetically, I also think that the message is really good,” said the singer.
Writing inspiring lyrics and encouraging others to follow their passions are goals that drive the 29-year-old singer.
Born Benjamin Franklin, son of a local minister, the road has taken a few winding turns since he recognized his gift for singing and songwriting.
On the cusp of adulthood, at age 18, his father gave him the money to cut his first demo, but it would be his songwriting abilities that would capture the attention of a Los Angeles-based publishing company and open the door to his first publishing deal.
The release of the single through the publishing company did not gain the traction that the aspiring singer or producers had hoped.
Uncertain of his direction in the music industry, Franklin returned to Houston and enrolled in college bent on pursuing a degree in graphic design.
But headway into pursuing his degree, he would hit a bump in the road, and once again found his passion for music, calling.
