Track Of The Day: Jeff Scott Soto
Jeff Scott Soto has just released Damage Control, his fifth studio album as a solo artist. He provides the latest Track Of The Day. Check out all the past Tracks Of The Day here.
One of the most acclaimed singers of his generation, Soto made his name performing with Journey, Yngwie Malmsteen and Talisman. He’s also contributed to albums from House Of Lords, Lita Ford and Stryper.
His first solo album, Love Parade, was released in 1994. Now he’s back with Damage Control on the Frontiers label. And among the many guests on the album is Y&T guitaist Dave Meniketti.
Says Soto of Meniketti: “Y&T drummer Mike Vanderhule played drums on a track and suggested I bring Dave on but, as he is a longtime friend and one on the ‘wish list’ of people I would have loved to have, I didn’t want to get an excuse that he was too busy or not interested. To my surprise I got neither… he was willing to do it and I was not only grateful but beyond pleased to work with another musical hero.”
Other musicians involved with the album are Treat duo Jamie Borger (drums) and Nalley Pahlsson (bass), Casey Grillo (drummer, Kamelot) and Joel Hoekstra (guitar, Night Ranger). And right now, Soto is plotting a major touring scenario.
“The plan is to do as much touring as possible wherever the world will have me. I plan to promote this album with a proper touring regiment!”
