Ben Somer is a gifted songwriter with a knack for storytelling. His
works are painstakingly candid snap-shots of the day-to-day which bring
to mind the great songwriters of a bygone era. Armed with a razor-sharp
wit and a gift for brevity, Somer crafts beautifully compelling songs
that are as heartbreaking as they are tongue-in-cheek. His music has
travelled across the country via radio, television, internet, and
relentless touring. Part of a new generation of artists carrying on the
Great Canadian Songwriting Tradition, Ben has performed hundreds of
concerts ranging from intimate living room shows - playing to a handful
of attentive listeners - to larger music festivals where heĆ¢€™s shared the
stage with world-class artists. The future looks promising for the
young musician, who has already garnered critical acclaim, and with a
third studio album forthcoming it seems that Somer is well on his way to
joining the ranks of CanadaĆ¢€™s songwriting elite.
