ROCK THE NIGHT feat- "Jeff Scott Soto" (Ex Sänger von JOURNEY, TALISMAN & TRANS SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA)
Die Stimme aus dem Film ROCKSTAR (Steel Dragon)
From Heavy Metal to Funk to AOR and Pop, Jeff Scott Soto is hailed throughout the music industry as one
of the most influential artists of the 21st Century!
Beginning with Swedish guitar sensation Yngwie J. Malmsteen in 1984, at the
age of 18 has not stopped since, building a name for himself through many
acts, projects and even his own solo career.
After his stint with Yngwie, he joined forces with Marcel Jacob, another
Malmsteen alumni, to start what would become a 19-year run with the Rock
force called 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”. Jeffʼs
voice can be heard throughout the movie and the soundtrack that has become
a cult hit amongst Hard Rock fans around the World.
In 2004, he formed a new supergroup with Neal Schon of Journey, Virgil Donati and Marco Mendoza
called Soul SirkUS which led to him fronting the American legendary band Journey through 2006 and
2007. Soul SirkUS released their one and only debut album in 2005 shortly after Jeffʼs first solo albums,
Love Parade, Prism and Lost In The Translation.
In 2007, after his Jeffʼs untimely release from Journey, he began recording with the arena theatrical rock
sensation, Trans-Siberian Orchestra. His inclusion on the latest Gold release, Night Castle, led to being
an integral part of the annual tours in which he continues to do currently. JSS also released his 4th 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 2 other well-known Swedish musicians on a new project called
W.E.T.. The subsequent album received a massive buzz in the music media and sold like gangbusters upon
its official release. Also that year he released his second live solo DVD, One Night In Madrid.
2011 sees JSS finishing yet another tour with TSO and aside from working on his fifth and latest solo
album, he will be embarking on some shows this summer as well as the widely known Bang Your Head
Festival in Balingen, Germany.
