In 2009, SoMo started recording covers in Denton, Texas. A successful 2011 mash-up of Drake's Take Care, led a massive draw to his YouTube channel, which has garnered 300M+ views on the platform. Throughout 2012, SoMo began to work on original music. His efforts in the studio yielded the independent debut mixtape My Life, merging R&B spirit with pop soul and showcasing his voice and songwriting. The mixtape was released for free on his birthday, September 11, 2013. Simultaneously, he released a new cover video every Sunday as part of his "SoMo Sunday" campaign.
