SULLY ERNA, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has announced he'll launch the 'Hometown Tour' in celebration of the release of his new solo album Hometown Life, due out Friday, September 30 via BMG. Only this time, ERNA plans on stripping it down for an intimate acoustic evening with guitar-player and band member Tim Theriault. The 'Hometown Tour' will launch October 26 in Atlanta, GA (see itinerary below). Tickets and limited amount of VIP experiences will go on sale starting Friday, September 9.

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. Case in point, the powerful and emotional first single "Different Kind Of Tears" written with songwriter/producer Zac Maloy.

A personal, confessional, raw work, Hometown Life offers 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 to soul legends Ray Charles, Etta James and Amy Winehouse, all mixed together with the lyrical vulnerability of artists like Adele.
