SOTO started in 2015 derived from the ideal of Jeff Scott Soto wanting to return to his heavier roots. So far they released 2 albums, “Inside The Vertigo” (2015) and “DIVAK” (2016), taking a short break while Jeff embarked on the supergroup Sons Of Apollo, alongside Mike Portnoy, Derek Sherinian, Billy Sheehan and Bumblefoot.
Now SOTO are returning under the same umbrella as Sons Of Apollo, having signed with InsideOutMusic. The new album “Origami” contains material that continues to expand and move the band towards new heights whilst following up with their brand of Power Rock.
SOTO – Line-Up:
Jeff Scott Soto – Vocals
