Joseph Somers-Morales, aka SoMo, is a pop vocalist from Denison, Texas. He performed at a very young age but spent most of his childhood away from music until his early twenties, when he received a piano from his mother.
He recorded a cover of Chris Brown's "Crawl" and, in November 2009, uploaded the clip to YouTube. Its popularity encouraged him to continue uploading covers, including a medley of songs from Drake's Take Care released the same day as the album. On September 11, 2012 -- his birthday -- he released My Life, a mixtape featuring some of his first originals written with Cody Tarpley. The following year, he signed to Republic, who remastered and re-released My Life. SoMo's self-titled debut album, the majority of which was produced by Mick Schultz (Jeremih), was released in April 2014 and debuted at number six on the Billboard 200. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
