September 2017 is a special anniversary for Jeff Scott Soto and Frontiers Music Srl as it marks the 13th anniversary of Frontiers releasing Jeff’s album, “Lost In The Translation.” In celebration of this milestone, Jeff Scott Soto has released a video for the song “Inside/Outside” from his upcoming album, “Retribution.” Check it out in the player at the bottom.
Soto describes the song as “[a] great tune that was originally slated as a Talisman song, it remained on Howie Simon’s hard drive until now. With a revised lyric and melody comes this hidden gem, hope you dig it!!’
