Rocking the USA!

Jeff Scott Soto 


       Journey has a new lead singer on its summer tour with Def Leppard while Steve Augeri recovers from a chronic throat infection.
        Jeff Scott Soto has performed with Journey guitarist Neal Schon in the band Soul Sirkus  they did together. Jeff did a great job with the same music range as Steve and having great showmanship to keep the legend of journey going strong.
        Journey finds its footing again and shows signs of its newly-found confidence incorporating a few more interesting production techniques.  Like other successful bands of the 1970s and 1980s, Journey's sound was built on the double treat of singer Steve Perry's upper-register vocals and guitarist Neal Schon's awsone lead solos.    
        The band has done a great  job of filling a slot for the popular Steve Perry that was with journey in the main rocking years.  Even Drummer Deen Castronovo, who sings lead on two tracks, is even closer to many traditionalist fans' breathy Steve Perry vocal ideal that they will swoon ("A Better Life," and "Never Too Late.             And with Jonathan Cain's vocals on "Every Generation" are perfectly adequate and reminiscent of Gregg Rolie's vocal tracks during his Santana and Journey days in the 1970s.  Journey know’s how to through a party playing all there hits with memorable tunes like "Anyway You Want It" and "Don't Stop Believin'." "Wheel in the Sky" was one of the band's more arty singles, while "Lovin', Touching', Squeezing'" relied on a straight four-bar blues. The band's power ballads gave them their biggest success, and are rightfully represented here: "Faithfully," "Open Arms," and "Send Her My Love." Another unlikely aspect furthers secured the band's success--you could actually dance to some of their stuff, especially "Anyway You Want It." After twenty years, Journey’s returning to the energetic form with great live shows.
