SULLY ERNA Premieres New Song “Turn It Up” Today

SULLY ERNA, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, has premiered his new song “Turn It Up!” today, September 15 via Billboard.com. Read the Billboard Q&A with SULLY ERNA and listen to “Turn It Up!” (here). The song is from his new solo album HOMETOWN LIFE, out Friday, September 30 via BMG. The album is a family affair, with his 73-year-old father Salvatore–who helped nurture his son’s own musical interest early on–playing trumpet on “Turn It Up,” a song Erna describes as a tribute to the power of music, a blueprint for how a song “makes you get off your seat, tap your feet, feel the energy and let it pass through you.”

In celebration of the album’s release, ERNA will launch the ‘Hometown Tour,’ an intimate acoustic evening with guitar-player and band member Tim Theriault. The ‘Hometown Tour’ begins October 26 in Atlanta, GA (see itinerary below). Tickets and limited amount of VIP experiences are on sale now (here).

Composed by SULLY on piano and acoustic guitar and produced in his New England-based studio, the 10 songs on HOMETOWN LIFE are a powerful mix of blues, country and adult contemporary, all layered with orchestral overtones offering another stylistic left-hand turn fromhis first solo album Avalon as well as the music he creates as front man for the multi-platinum rock band Godsmack.

A personal, confessional, raw work, HOMETOWN LIFEoffers a wide-ranging glimpse of SULLY’s eclectic musical tastes–from singer-songwriter Billy Joel/Bruce Springsteen, to the bossa nova touch of “Take All of Me,” to the breezy island feel of “Your Own Drum,” the finger-snapping Motown bass lines of  the bluesy “Turn It Up,” the country flavors of “Different Kind of Tears” and the wide-screen canvas of mini-symphonies such as “Blue Skies” and “Forever My Infinity.”  All of them are tied together with SULLY’s unflinching view of the emotional roller-coaster of his life, drawing us into a very intimate space.

HOMETOWN LIFE explores ERNA’s diverse musical touchstones from James Bay, to new country favorite Chris Stapleton to soul legends Ray Charles, Etta James and Amy Winehouse, all mixed together with the lyrical vulnerability of artists like Adele.
