Jay Soto – Veritas

All started in 2005 with Long Time Coming. With nuGroove Records Jay Soto had his second start with his promising album Stay Awhile followed by Mesmerized in 2009. After a long hiatus he is back with Veritas (2015). The title is the Latin word for truth and reveals Jay’s affinity for the Catholic religion.

Soto is accompanied on the new album by bassist Mario Mendevil, drummers Goran Rista and Phil Robertson. Not to compare with his previous albums, which were packed with musicians of the Smooth Jazz scene. Jay comments꞉ “It’s very different from previous releases. It’s me in the most honest light.″

The album starts with Voice Of The Archangel. Embedded in an epic orchestral environment Jay jubilates on his guitar in Spanish style. King Of Glory celebrates the greatness of God in his omnipotence with a grandiloquent string orchestra and Jay’s brilliant acoustic guitar performance.

Well, two years later Jay Soto had himself established on the charts and signed a contract with NuGroove Records releasing his sophomore album Stay Awhile. And his career continues with his new album Mesmerized (2009).

The title sums up the effect of Jay’s guitar performance. Like on his previous album Jay is supported by great producers. Michael Broening, Darren Rahn and Mark Riddick signed as responsible. But Jay produced this time a great part of his album himself at his own SotoPop Studio in Glendale, Arizona. Jay is joined by such veritable artists as Freddie Fox (rhythm guitar), Mel Brown (bass), Michael White (drums), Michael Broening (keyboards and programming) and some more guest musicians.
