It doesn't happen that often that a largely unknown new artist delivers such a stunning debut album as is the case with Mykal Somer's "Element Of Surprise". So, first of all let's introduce this very talented singjay/songwriter and producer. Mykal Somer (pronounced "Summa") was born Dwayne Somersall on the 9th of September 1976 in Half Way Tree, St. Kitts. As a youth, Mykal Somer was very determined and self motivated. He grew up with a strong cultural background enriched with reggae music, which became Mykal's only true love. His love for music started around the age of 14 years old. He began listening to the words of the late great Bob Marley, Lucky Dube and other cultural legends, which really inspired him. As a result Mykal decided to pursue his career as a musician and a messenger of The Most High. His singing career started at the age of 17, when he performed at a local High school in St. Kitts. At this time reggae music was at its peak in St. Kitts. After two years of performing locally and getting the support he wanted, Mykal decided to move to the U.S. to further his music career. And now, after several years of hardship and struggle Mykal Somer has released his debut album titled "Element of Surprise" through his own company Eskeh Entertainment Inc.
