Sully Erna, best known as singer and main songwriter of acclaimed rock band Godsmack, is branching out from his rock roots this year with his debut solo album, Avalon, which is set for release on Universal Records September 14th, 2010. Already a proven commodity as the frontman of one of today’s most successful and powerful rock bands, Erna is also a successful producer, multi-instrumentalist and soundtrack creator.
Born and raised in the suburbs of Boston Massachusetts, Erna has been a musician since the tender age of 3 and a half years old, where he began his journey as a drummer.
Sully Erna's latest masterpiece, Avalon, features an array of eclectic compositions unlike anything he has ever written in the past, an epic body of work that has taken him over 2 years to compose, record and finally release, utilizing the hypnotic sounds of tribal rhythms, melodic pianos and cellos, and haunting vocals. Avalon also features the accompanying vocals of Lisa Guyer, as well as the hand percussion of Niall Gregory from renowned band Dead Can Dance.
