Soto, featuring iconic vocalist Jeff Scott Soto, has completed the second studio album, “Divak,” to be released on April 1st via earMUSIC.
“Divak” (pronounced dee-vock) comes shortly after the debut release “Inside The Vertigo,” a mere 15 months partly due to Jeff Scott Soto’s insistence on continuing to create and build a true brand for his new venture. Once again the album is produced by Jeff Scott Soto and drummer, Edu Cominato, mixed by long time JSS engineer/associate, John Ellis.
The band features Soto on vocals, Cominato on drums, lead guitarist Jorge Salan, bassist David Z and keyboardist/guitarist BJ. The guys are heavily featured on “Divak” with their writing contributions together.
The first single “FreakShow” was co-produced/written by Tony Dickinson, who also co-wrote “The Fall,’ (the 1st single released from “Inside The Vertigo”), the track is an extension of the Soto sound created especially for this new band.
