THRAEXX - Andrew Soto

Andrew Soto – Guitar / Bass / Keys / Drums / Arranging / Programming / Backup Vocals

Once in a while, a person comes along with a unique, natural gift simply defined as “ability”. When that same artist also enjoys performing, the result is pure entertainment. Such is the case of guitarist Andrew Soto, the 24 year-old San Pedro, CA native brings speed, melody and thrilling showmanship to the table. His skill is wide-ranging & he can tap into blues, rock & speed metal seamlessly. His music tells a story that is packed with passion, rage, edginess and is deeply introspective with tight licks to create the atmosphere of a thrill ride.With Andrew, one door closes and another opens. He is not afraid to venture into unknown doors and his music reflects his fearlessness.

I use: Jackson, Ibanez, Line 6, Marshall.
