Sully Erna, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, has premiered his new song “Turn It Up!” online. 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.

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 from his first solo album Avalon as well as the music he creates as front man for the multi-platinum rock band Godsmack.
