Update from Jeff Scott Soto

Ahh, nice to be back in South America!! My capacities seem to get bigger & better with each visit, if only there was this much interest in me back at home. I guess in a way it's a double edged sword though, as much as I want to move forward & not just be known for a few musical postcards in my life, they embrace the 'older' genre I was known for here which is why things continue to go so well for me abroad. Bands like GNR, Whitesnake, Saxon, Deep Purple are played in clubs & fans get as excited about this music here as much if not more than they did when it all came out. And these are young people, 19-22 year olds we're talking about! So I guess I have to be happy they love what I did so I can sneak in the new little by little ?

Backing up a bit, after wrapping up my album in Sweden, I headed to Tampa, FL for a month to work some more on the new TSO album. It's a great experience being involved with that company, they are everything everyone says about them, talented, good hearted, loyal & charitable people. It's rewarding to see an organization at that level who truly care & make a difference as well as entertaining the masses, I am truly honored to be a part of the family.

From there, I did a month tour with my brothers from Sao Paulo, Brazil, Tempestt, where I assisted in booking a launch tour for their debut CD, Bring 'Em On. I sang a duet on the album with them & in '07 we did a small tour of South America where they would go onstage doing 6-7 songs, I would then join them & do another 7-8 of my more 'known' songs in my career & it went great! I wanted to extend this idea to Europe so the guys would get more out of the gate notoriety. It's hard enough for a new band to get media attention much less the opportunity to tour on their 1st album but I believe in these guys & wanted to do my best in getting even my fans to take notice. The tour was of one of the most fun I have ever done, there wasn't more than 5 minutes of EACH day where we weren't laughing, pulling pranks, etc., The coolest part is I got to drive the big van through all of Europe! I love driving & always dreamt of driving thru Europe having already done the US TWICE! There's nothing in the world like cruising the Autobahn in Germany at top speed with nothing but open road! Every time the tour manager asked or wanted to take the wheel, I jumped in before he could think of it, I'd do it again in a heartbeat! The other reason for the tour was I knew it would be a while before I would be hitting the road in Europe again, between the release of the new album & other things brewing, I won't have time to get out there any time soon. I can't reveal just yet when or where but I will be on the road this & next year but not doing my stuff, not yet.
