Selected “Top 100 Hot Artist For 2013” (Music Connection Magazine)
In 2013 Los Angeles modern rock band NEVERWONDER garnered high praise from critics the world over for their latest album, “Really Let It Out” and performed at some of Southern California’s most respected venues, including the Rose Bowl (where they opened for hit makers Far East Movement) and a Main Stage show at the House Of Blues in Hollywood. They were also a “Top 25 Artist” (ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE), and secured worldwide distribution via I-Tunes as well Amazon, I-Heart Radio and Spotify.
“NEVERWONDER has taken hard rock and mixed it with R&B and soul, creating an EP that has it all. Vocalist Alima Soul is a powerhouse and is supported by great musicians on the album including the Ramos Brothers, Vincent and Andres (on bass and drums). ‘Really Let It Out’ is done with excellence, and is a taste of what this band is capable of.”
