“I was beyond excited and ready to make this album upon reviewing some of the songs Howie had in mind for it,” JSS explains. “I knew it would be a great follow up to the killer albums I’ve made thus far with Frontiers.”

From Heavy Metal to Funk to AOR and Pop, Jeff Scott Soto is a name that is hailed throughout the music industry as one of the most influential artists of the 21st Century!

JSS began his professional musical life with Swedish guitar sensation Yngwie J. Malmsteen’s ‘
Rising Force’ in 1984 at the age of 18 and has not stopped since; building a name for himself through many acts and projects that have culminated in his own successful solo career.

After his stint with ‘Rising Force’, he joined forces with
Marcel Jacob, another Malmsteen alumni, to start what would become a 19-year run with another Swedish rock ‘tour de force’ - ‘Talisman’.

In 2001, JSS supplied the lead vocals for the main character/singer of the fictional band ‘
Steel Dragon’ for the Mark Wahlberg movie “Rock Star”. Jeff’s voice can be heard throughout the movie and soundtrack that has become a cult hit amongst Hard Rock fans around the World.

During 2004, JSS formed a new super group with
Neal Schon of ‘Journey’, Virgil Donati and Marco Mendoza called ‘Soul SirkUS’ which, in turn, led to him fronting the legendary American band ‘Journey’ between 2006 and 2007. Soul SirkUS released their one and only debut album World Play in 2005 following on from Jeff’s first three solo albums, Love Parade, Prism and Lost In The Translation.

After an untimely release from Journey in mid 2007, he began recording with the Rock Theater sensation,
Trans-Siberian Orchestra. His additions to the latest Gold Disc release, Night Castle, led to him becoming an integral part of the annual tours in which he continues currently.

JSS released his fourth solo album,
Beautiful Mess, in 2008 as well as restructuring his solo line up to include; Jorge Salan (guitar) and Fernando Mainer (bass) from Spain and Edu Cominato (drums) and BJ (keys/guitar) from Brazil.
2009 saw the collaboration of Jeff with two well-known Swedish musicians on a new project called ‘W.E.T.’ The album received massive buzz and sold like gangbusters upon the official release date. Also that year he released his second solo live DVD,
One Night In Madrid.

2011 saw JSS finishing yet another tour with TSO and aside from working on his fifth solo album,
Damage Control released worldwide, March 2012 on Frontiers Records and EMI and a forthcoming W.E.T. album – ‘Rise Up’ along with a live CD/DVD entitled ‘One Live in Stockholm’.

During the summer of 2012 Jeff toured as a part of the successful ‘
Queen Extravaganza’ across North America (at the request of ‘Queen’s drummer, Roger Taylor) and he then he was back on the road with TSO for their winter tour.

2013 was a very busy and fruitful year for this in demand singer as he embarked on a tour which now included the addition of bassist
David Z (ZO2, Trans-Siberian Orchestra) into the band.

2014 saw Jeff pushing forth with a new solo album which was heavier and more ‘band oriented’, so much that his team convinced him it should be released as a band. This album ended up as ‘
Inside The Vertigo’ with the band name SOTO which simply incorporated the JSS Band, Edu Cominato, Jorge Salan, BJ & David Z into a full time partnership. The album was released with earMUSIC/Edel in January 2015.

With the dissatisfaction of the attention garnered from
ITV, Jeff rounded up the band to get writing immediately for the followup album, aiming to use some of the steam already established. The band rallied and delivered their 2nd album DIVAK which was released April 1, 2016. The album received higher acclaim and put the band on its 1st official tour as SOTO including a run through Brazil with Winery Dogs.

Jeff ended the year as usual with TSO and started 2017 with
SOTO’s inclusion yet again on the Monsters Of Rock Cruise into a European tour.

Jeff had decided after many years of sorted managers to take the helm of the band’s business with his now business partner
Chris Hines, who together run Optical Sound. One of the ideals was to expand beyond just handling SOTO in which the young UK sensation Bigfoot were brought into the roster before their debut with Frontiers Records was dropped.

Another milestone that occurred was Jeff being asked into a new supergroup featuring
Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan, Bumblefoot and Derek Sherinian which the band aptly named themselves Sons Of Apollo. The album was recorded between March/June 2017 & released on Oct 20, 2017 with Inside Out Music/Century Media.

That summer also saw Jeff re-teaming with former JSS guitarist Howie Simon and together they churned out another JSS solo masterpiece entitled Retribution which was released on Nov 10, 2017. Jeff brought in Edu Cominato to handle all drum duties and the only 2 songs on the album with outside writers and contributions are “Reign Again” which was co-written with August Zadra (Dennis DeYoung) and Steve Sturm as well as “Song For Joey”, written with Paulo Mendonça.

As if Jeff wasn’t already busy with both SOA & JSS, he dove straight back into the studio to knock out the new and long awaited W.E.T. followup, Earthrage, set for release late Feb 2018.

Most, if not all of 2018 will be spent on the road with
Sons Of Apollo, check this space!

RETRIBUTION ALBUM REVIEWS
“Jeff Scott Soto’s new solo album Retribution is some of his best work. I don’t feel like I’m saying that as a fan either, but as a music lover in general. The fact is, Jeff could sing the phone book and make it enjoyable, but this is by far one of his most mature and personal solo albums I believe he has recorded, and will hopefully get a wide audience for it.” - 10/10

“On a JSS solo album you get a good mix of hard rockers, like the title track and ones that allow JSS to unleash his funkier side, ‘Bullet For My Baby’ an example of this on the album. ‘Breakout’ reminds you of the much missed Talisman, especially with the call and response chorus, great stuff.” - 4/5

“Verdict: 9/10. One of the unmissable albums of 2017. Jeff Scott Soto and Howie Simon are both on excellent form. There is a lot of guitar driven songs here, a few heavier tracks which are nicely balanced by the the ballads on the album, and plenty of feel good and catchy songs. I really, really enjoyed this and would highly recommend it for fans of Talisman, SOTO, Eclipse, W.E.T., Pink Cream 69, House Of Lords. It may even make our Top 5 of 2017 list.” - 9/10

“What can I say about ‘Retribution’? It’s great! It’s got a classic melodic rock feel to it with masterful guitars throughout. Well crafted melodic tracks blended with smooth melodic vocals that hit notes and tones that fit the music perfectly. Jeff Scott Soto picked the perfect musicians to create this album with. The level of performance and skill from each member comes through each song as the album progresses.” - 4,5/5

“Full of melodic tracks that are synonymous with Jeff, the album is well written and well performed. Hard hitting riffs run throughout the album as well as great melodies with tracks such as ‘Retribution’ and ‘Reign Again.’ The softer tracks such as ‘Feels Like Forever’ and ‘Autumn’ have the beautiful feel of ballads. Howie Simon’s playing complements Jeff’s voice beautifully and gives the tracks that added edge. Across this album Jeff is able to showcase the varying talent of both his voice and his writing.” - 8/10

“Jeff Scott Soto with "Retribution" releases a hands in the air, powerful and in-your-face melodic hard rock album all the way. More mature with a heavier approach, but with the melody in front row, and with some killer tunes in it "Retribution" is just KILLER!” - 9/10

Numbers such as “Rage of the Year” and “Breakout” really create a wow-effect, including the risk of getting addicted to them. I mentioned the feel that comes with Soto’s voice and there is no better song than the soulful “Feel Like Forever” transporting emotions right into your heart.
If you’re a fan of warm and heavy rock music there’s no way to skirt around “Retribution”. Jeff Scott Soto’s new longplayer fires on all cylinders and belongs to best hardrock releases this year.” - 8/10

Retribution has everything you want from an album; its full of character, emotion and is utterly captivating from its skin to its very soul.
It’s enchanting and completely spellbinding.
