About Us

At Techstars AI in Montreal, James Maxwell and Nicolas Gonzalez Thomas founded their company in the generative AI music landscape – years before Gen.AI became a household term – with James holding a Ph.D. in AI music and Nicolas equipped with a master’s in the same field. Their venture and deep expertise in Music AI caught the attention of Sean Power, a seasoned startup veteran and mentor at Techstars AI. 

A few years later they reconnected to start a new venture, Sean brought in Matt Adell, a stalwart in music tech – having lead Beatport to a successful acquisition as CEO – to further enhance the company’s direction and depth. With this foundational the teams leadership, this union of academic excellence, technical infrastructure skill, and music industry know-how led to the evolution of SOMMS.AI, poised to bring clarity and precision to the realm of AI-generated music
