Turn It On

Album: Turn It On (2015)


  • The lead single and title track of Eli Young Band's Turn It On EP, "Turn It On" was co-penned by bandmates Mike Eli and James Young alongside Rodney Clawson and Matt Dragstrem on the group's tour bus. "It started off as this jangly Fleetwood Mac-sounding thing, and melodically it was somewhere vocally that I hadn't gone before," Eli told Radio.com.

    Eli added that writing the song on the bus helped give it a merry feel. "We knew it was going to be this fun tune to play live," said the singer.
