Mark Somers @ ’t Oude Pothuys
Born in Antwerp, Belgium in 1964.
Grew up on a diet of jazz (Montgomery, Erroll Garner and the like) and crooners/jazz singers (Sinatra, Ella) from my father’s record collection.
Started playing at the age of 16, guitar at first.
Moved through blues, rock, funk, pop, folk and more.
Played in numerous Belgian bands, like Street Legal and The Crawling Kingsnakes, and then settled into playing mainly with English musicians and gigging in England and Belgium, having also lived in Leeds for a couple of years.
Currently working on a solo, mostly acoustic project and regular live work with covers band Yune.
Previous bands include Short Cut To Trouble with Mhic McGlashan (www.myspace.com/shortcuttotrouble) and British avant garde / blues cult legend Billy Jenkins (www.billyjenkins.com). A concert video of Mark with Billy Jenkins & The Belgian Blues Collective can be found on Youtube.
