“NEVERWONDER have a really good soul/rock crossover that is easy on the ears,” writes Kelly Geist of NATIONAL ROCK REVIEW in a live review of the band’s performance at the Las Vegas Rock N Roll Marathon last week, where they played on the famed Vegas Strip in front of the Paris Hotel/Casino. “They exude a very positive vibe, a solid rhythm section and substantial, raspy vocals that remind me a little bit of Janis Joplin.”
Read the entire review here:

MUSIC CONNECTION magazine writes, “Neverwonder’s strength resides in a special blend of rock and soul…(new singer Alima) Soul contributes more than just great vocals… (drummer Andres) Ramos shifts between metal, rock, and funk styles with ease…the rock and rap mash-up of “Wild Out” is a crowd favorite and a good finale for the band who are at their peak performance here.”

With the addition of vocalist Alima Soul, the band’s creative synergy has been an undeniable force to be reckoned with. Their natural chemistry evokes the creation of impressionable songs and unforgettable performances. Alima’s sultry, soul-styling and songwriting brings a new vibe to the band’s repertoire. Neverwonder’s  unique sound is a blend of rock, pop, and soul. Their music is driven by their strong musicianship and is rooted by life’s experiences. The band’s music influences include Foo Fighters, Soundgarden, Lenny Kravitz, No Doubt, Tina Turner, Mary J. Blige, and Pink.
