SoMo Presents: The Ride Tour
On November 15, 2011, the same day Drake's sophomore album Take Care hit stores, SoMo released a daunting Take Care Medley that combines select cuts from Drake's album in an effortless succession of continuous covers.
Whether shrewd marketing or happenstance, that medley has gone on to amass over 3.5 million views, a mere 150 times the current population of his hometown. As an independent R&B artist from the small town of Denison, TX, SoMo's numerous YouTube videos, including medleys, renditions, covers, and original music, have accumulated over 30 million views and counting.
In early 2013, SoMo released the highly anticipated music video for his original smash single Ride, from his 2012 debut mixtape entitled My Life. Shot and directed by Dan Gotti, the video has been viewed over 1.2 million times since it's release. As it is shared and views continue to climb, the positive response seems to only reinforce SoMo's artistic philosophy; "If it sounds good, people will listen."
SoMo recently concluded The Show Off Tour, his first-ever national headlining tour, and played to numerous sold out rooms across the country. Just ahead of the tour, he released of a brand new single by the same name. Show Off, produced by Mick Shultz (producer of Jeremih's Birthday Sex and Down on Me feat. 50 Cent), was met with an incredibly positive response and is now available at iTunes and all digital retailers.
Currently recording his debut album in Dallas and Los Angeles, SoMo is preparing for that release to come in the fall ahead of a 30-city national headlining tour in September. For more info on the music and the tour, stay tuned to www.officialsomo.com and youtube.com/TheMrSoMo.
Born in New Orleans, Pell was uprooted to Starkville, Mississippi by Hurricane Katrina in 2005 at the age of 15. Like many others in NOLA, Katrina decimated the neighborhood where Pell and his family lived, and as a result they were forced to relocate. “All I was able to take with me from New Orleans was the musical culture I grew up in, not my possessions, only memories and life lessons.”
“Creating a new life from scratch teaches you resilience,” adds Pell. And he’s used his determination to pursue a music career. In high school, Pell created beats for his friends using a beat box that his dad gave him. Pell used those skills to help produce tracks on his first 2010 mixtape, “That Feel Good.” It was that year that he also formed the collective That Feel Good (TFG), with some friends.
In 2012, Pell released his first collection of songs digitally as a free album titled The Wild. Shortly after, Pell released a single titled “The Actress” featuring TFG-affiliate Sir Flywalker. The song, an ode to college party life, amassed over 25,000 SoundCloud plays, leading to coverage in the Jackson Free Press, and music outlets such as YouHeardThatNew and NME. In addition, Pell started to open shows for artists such as Machine Gun Kelly, Joey Badass, Waka Flocka, and Casey Veggies.
Also last year, Pell released Calphonic, a free album hosted by DJ Wally Sparks that introduced the world to his laid-back attitude, ambient instrumentals, and nodding melodies. Riding the Calphonic wave into 2013, Pell is currently on the road on the Calphonic Tour featuring other members of TFG. In March of 2013, electro-pop duo Cherub released their highly anticipated 100 Bottles EP featuring Pell on the single ‘Drowzzzy.’ The momentum continued as Pell launched a video release for ‘The Wild,’ a track featured on Calphonic, marking his first single available via iTunes. The video premiered via RESPECT. Magazine and was also featured by Vibe and YouHeardThatNew.
