Don Somerville Biography

Don Somerville has presented numerous team building seminars over the last 25 years and loves the challenge of effecting positive change over the course of 60 minutes, a 24 hour period or a full weekend. He’s a believer in customizing his presentations to meet the specific transformational or evolutionary goals of the event. He feels that individual time with participants is invaluable where the context allows – but is equally comfortable in small or large group settings and celebrates every little win throughout the day. Somerville has long believed that entertainment and education are an unstoppable force when fused together effectively for the purpose of presentation.

As a producer, Somerville has successfully worked with Grammy Award winning artists and songwriters to produce some of the most commercially accessible music of today – with a sound that is world class on every level. As an award winning songwriter, Somerville brings to the table a creative diversity that’s reflected in a sampling of his co-writers over the years. He’s found himself locking pens with Grammy Award – winning writers like David Paich (Toto) and Bill Champlin (Chicago) in addition to Dann Huff (Producer for Rascal Flatts/Keith Urban/Bon Jovi), Chris Eaton (Amy Grant/Janet Jackson) and Canadian mega-producer and hit songwriter David Foster.

Somerville signed an exclusive staff writer deal with Australian based Bell Hughes Music Group in 2007 and enjoyed the benefits of more international exposure than ever before. There have been numerous Asian cuts to speak of covering the Chinese, Japanese and Korean markets across the pond. More recently his collaboration with David Foster was recorded by boy band super-group MC The Max and released at the beginning of 2014.

Country superstar John Berry and Grammy winning inspirational artist Steve Archer have recorded Somerville’s material domestically, and he’s enjoyed collaborating over the years with the likes of Hall of Fame writer Jeff Berry (Do Wah Diddy-I Honestly Love You), and ABC Reality Show winner Jessica Ridley. A longtime sports fanatic, Somerville has written music for both the NHL and NBA, while national television smiled on one of his songs in the popular reality show "The Hills" on MTV. Most recently, Somerville completed an original musical score for a powerful award winning documentary.

Somerville has played keys for and toured with numerous artists over the years – from six time Grammy Winner Russ Taff to high end ABBA tribute acts Bjorn Again and ABBACADABBRA.
