Joseph Anthony Somers-Morales popularly known by his stage name SoMo was born in Austin, Texas, USA in 1987 as an American. SoMo started out as a successful and notable star on YouTube.
He turned heads with his talent and content, and his unique and compelling content has landed him commercially lucrative offers from some very significant record companies. He soon began his independent career with the release of his first album, SoMo.
Maybe you know SoMo very well. But do you know how old and tall he is and what his net worth is?
SoMo was born in Texas in 1987 and turned 36 this year. He was the son of Sarah Somers and also had a younger brother named John. It is believed that his father was a musician and his mother was a housewife.
However, there is no recorded name of the paternal figure in his life. His father was known as a wanderer and traveler. He was always on one tour or another and wasn’t much of their household.
He was raised primarily by his mother, who had a difficult time raising two children without a fatherly figure.
Although SoMo was interested in music from an early age, it wasn’t until he was 14 that he drifted more towards music. His famous name, JoSoMo, came from an endearing gesture from his schoolmate and friend who used to write him notes and affectionately called him JoSoMo.
He decided to use that as his stage name as it sounded very cool for a musician. JoSoMo has also been used on various websites by him.
It is worth noting that he did not study music professionally. He used to be interested in music just for fun and then played the piano that his mother had given him. Around 2010 he started using the piano to make his own music.
