Ephraim Scott Sommers grew up in the tiny town of Atascadero, California, and then moved to San Luis Obispo for college where he joined and sang for the band Siko (www.myspace.com/siko). With a funky rock and roll sound, Siko released two full-length albums and toured the entire United States without the help of a manager, label or booking agent, sharing the stage with bands like Eek-A-Mouse, Marc Broussard, OneRepublic, G-Love & The Special Sauce, The Average White Band, The Aggrolites and The English Beat in famous venues such as The Hard Rock Hollywood, The Key Club, The Viper Room, The San Diego House of Blues, and The Hollywood House of Blues. As a solo artist, with the release of the album, Stones and Smoke (2010), Ephraim has also toured internationally.
