JEFF SCOTT SOTO Releases 'Live In Milan' Digital Live Album

Jeff Scott Soto has released a new live album, “Live At Frontiers Rock Festival 2019” on all digital platforms. 
Today marks the one year anniversary of the performance captured in Milan, Italy on April 27, 2019 at the Frontiers Rock Festival. 
Stream or download it HERE:  Listen to a performance of 'Eyes Of Love'
The performance will be released later this year in physical format as a bonus disc on Jeff's upcoming solo album, “ Wide Awake (In My Dreamland), which he has co-written and co-produced with producer Alessandro Del Vecchio.
On April 27, 2019, the one and only Jeff Scott Soto performed a one-off live performance at Frontiers Rock Festival VI in Milan, Italy. Over the course of 60 minutes, he presented a fantastic review of his solo career. Jeff's live shows are always pure energy and fun and this one was no exception! At the end of the set, there is a nice little treat as Jeff called fellow singer and labelmate Dino Jelusick (Animal Drive, Trans-Siberian Orchestra) up from the audience (literally) to get him on stage to perform a fabulous unrehearsed and spontaneous duet of the classic 'Stand Up' (which many may recognize from the hit cult movie, Rock Star).
One of the first artists who partnered up with Frontiers Music Srl back in the day, Jeff Scott Soto has become part of the label's family. Not only has he recorded albums for the label for nearly 2 decades, but has brought, and continues to bring, up-and-coming musical talent to the label's roster.
Jeff's musical career spans over 35 years and is showing no signs of slowing down. Jeff burst onto the scene as the vocalist for guitar hero Yngwie Malmsteen’s iconic first two solo albums, before going on to front acclaimed hard rock band Talisman. Later, he would spend a period of time fronting one of the most famous melodic rock/AOR bands in the world, Journey. Currently, while maintaining his solo career, he is now busy singing for the wildly popular Trans-Siberian Orchestra, the awesome melodic hard rock band W.E.T., his own metal project SOTO, and the prog metal supergroup Sons Of Apollo.
Jeff will release his next solo album on Frontiers in the second half of 2020.

Misplaced Straws Interviews: GEOFF TATE, JEFF SCOTT SOTO

Also just added is a wide ranging interview with Jeff Scott Soto.



Jeff Scott Soto - "What Was" (Steve Perry Cover)

JEFF SCOTT SOTO says: "In celebration of Steve Perry’s return to the music world with his new album "Traces", my longtime friends at Frontiers came to me with the idea of throwing out a cover of one of SP’s tunes as a ‘welcome back’ of sorts.

This idea came about a week before I was scheduled to embark on the current Sons Of Apollo tour, I had little time to put this together, so I called on my VERY busy friend Alessandro Del Vecchio and asked if he could help me put something together. He enthusiastically squeezed me in and quickly knocked out the music to a song he had suggested called ‘What Was’. This song was only available on the ‘Greatest Hits + Five Unreleased’ album.
And so here it is, a thank you, welcome back and celebration for Mr. Perry’s return! I owe so much to this man and the influence he gave me as a singer, I only hope I did this song justice for you all to enjoy!" - Jeff Scott Soto, September 2018
