“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. “Breakout’ is a great lead in as to what you can look forward to!”
Jeff Scott Soto‘s career spans over 30 years. He was first introduced to the public as the vocalist for guitar virtuoso Yngwie Malmsteen’s iconic first two solo albums before going on to front the esteemed hard rock band Talisman. He is also one of the vocalists for the wildly popular Trans-Siberian Orchestra, the lead vocalist for supergroup W.E.T. (featuring JSS alongside members of Eclipse and Work Of Art), creative visionary for the more metal leaning SOTO, and frontman for the new supergroup, Sons Of Apollo (which also features Mike Portnoy, Derek Sherinian, Bumblefoot, and Billy Sheehan) amongst many other musical activities he has been and is involved in. He also held a stint fronting Rock N Roll Hall Of Famers Journey and was one of the vocalists for the officially sanctioned Queen tribute, Queen Extravaganza. His incredible voice has led to many invitations to do guest lead or background vocals on a multitude of albums, including, but not limited to. Stryper, Joel Hoekstra, Saigon Kick, Fergie Frederiksen, Lita Ford, Steelheart, and many more.
In 1994, he released his first solo outing Love Parade, followed by the acclaimed Prism (2002), Lost In The Translation (2005), Beautiful Mess (2009) and Damage Control (2012). Retribution is his sixth proper solo studio album.
