Since the age of 16 guitarist,  Motorhome Records  recording  artist,  singer,  songwriter Whitey Somers  has  been  performing  internationally  at  festivals, concerts and  clubs, sharing the stage with many talented musicians, such as Rick Fines, Stephen Fearing, Jeff Healey, J.P.

There’s  been  a  lot of shows over  the  last  40  years.  Whitey  currently  performs  with “Whitey Somers Band”, solo acoustic shows  and  as  guitarist  for  “Blue Dog Ramble”.

“I  grew  up  in  a  house full of  musical  influences.  There was always  something on the turntable  or  someone   visiting   with  a  guitar”. 
As a nephew of Canadian composer  Harry Somers, Whitey Somers  found an early love of  music,  a  pool  he  most  happily  dove  into. 
The Video for Whitey’s song “Down That Road” ( the title track from his new CD release ) took  3rd. place  in  the  live  category  of  the  2018  Canadian  Songwriting  Competition.
