Jeff Scott Soto – one of today's premier Rock frontmen and vocalists – and a union of hotshot young musicians bring you a blend of melody and muscle in some of the freshest power metal to surface in years. Together they are Soto, and the debut album “Inside The Vertigo” will be released on January 30th via earMusic.
Described as a "neurotic blend of power metal, prog, groove-laden huge guitars, hooks and production," Soto plans to be a contender in today's modern Rock arena while capturing the essence of strong songwriting simultaneously.
Jeff explains, 'I've been in the game for a long time but my roots started more on the heavier side of the tracks, I thought it was about time I came home to visit the family and stick around for a while!."
The band is comprised of Jeff's most current solo band, who he insisted on making this musical merge with him. Jorge Salan (lead guitar), BJ (keys, guitars), David Z (bass) and Edu Cominato (drums). Soto adds, 'These guys come from different parts of the world and bring their own influence to make this band very special. From the US to Europe to South America, we have an exciting mix of style and prestige that keeps us all on our toes." More...
