As a passionate rock and roll fan, I can listen to guitar players all day. Give me Beck, Clapton, Vai, Satriani, Lynch, Santana, Buddy Guy and even James Taylor…the list goes on. But when it comes to rock and roll singers, there are few that I like as much as Jeff Scott Soto. Huh? ‘Who is this guy?‘ you’re wondering.
Jeff Scott Soto has been singing in a number of bands since the mid-1980’s when he came onto the scene playing in guitar virtuoso Yngwie Malmsteen’s band. He enjoyed a short stint as Journey’s lead singer a few years ago, has toured with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra and has fronted a long list of hard rock and funk bands. Roughly a year ago, he came out with a solo album called Beautiful Mess (not an affiliate link) and this song, “Hey” is probably my favorite. It’s high energy, upbeat and has positive lyrics and a very catchy chorus.
If you’re looking for a little extra pep in your step, give a listen and have a great weekend!
