Russ Irwin, Los Angeles-based keyboardist, singer-songwriter and touring member of AEROSMITH for over 15 years, has released the ten-song solo album "Get Me Home". Featuring guest vocals from AEROSMITH frontman Steven Tyler and appearances by AEROSMITH guitarist Brad Whitford, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS' Dean DeLeo, and Grammy-nominated trumpeter Chris Botti, the CD showcases Irwin's unique style of piano-driven, jazz-inspired, blues rock.

According to a press release, "the album's sharp arrangements and eclectic dynamics represent just a sample of the songwriting acuity that has earned Irwin high-praise status as a hitmaker among his peers. Irwin's first single 'Manhattan', a modern-day standard and ode to New York City, chronicles a born and bred New Yorker's nostalgia for the landmarks and mood of the Big Apple after years of being on the road and living in L.A. The raucous 'I Miss Being Lonely' laments an addict friend's chaotic downward spiral despite claims of being sober and the slow-burning build and tight vocal harmonies of 'Find The Light' give universal encouragement to not 'give up when times are rough.'"

In recent years, Irwin has toured with Sting, Bryan Adams, Curt Smith (TEARS FOR FEARS),and Duncan Sheik and has written songs for FOREIGNER, MEAT LOAF, SCORPIONS, and produced Clay Aiken's "I Want To Know What Love Is" which entered the Billboard Hot 200.

This June, Irwin will embark on The Global Warming Tour with AEROSMITH and will appear on episodes of Bravo's "The Real Housewives Of New York City" as Carole Radziwell's boyfriend. Solo tour dates will be announced later this year.
