Somers was considered an eclectic composer with inspiration from Mahler, Ives & Bártok to electronic music. He developed a very original style upon all of these influences. He earned his living as a radio commentator or pianist in the CBC radio & television broadcasts. In 1960 he won an award for his piece "Movement for Orchestra". For a brief period he lived in Italy, 1969–1971. Then he returned to Canada were he lived till his death in 1999.
