Dynamic singer and songwriter Alima Soul began her career in California's culture-rich San Francisco Bay Area where, at an early age, she found a passion for performance. Encouraged to nurture her raw talent, she began writing songs and playing the piano.
What developed was a fresh singer with a rich, sultry voice that conjures up the soulful nuances of Whitney Houston and the urban edge of Mary J. Blige. Alima has cultivated a style that is singular and completely her own.
With humble beginnings performing at weddings, benefits and talent shows, Alima was quickly recognized as a young artist to look out for, and she was destined to advance in her craft.
She outgrew the Bay Area and decided to make the leap across the country to New York City. There, Alima found many doors opening to her. The open mic scene was not only an opportunity for her to gain exposure and more stage experience but it also kept her surrounded by many talented artists. Alima performed with bands throughout Manhattan, and collaborated with many established and upcoming producers on her solo project.
It was during her time in New York and as part of a huge artist community that Alima fine-tuned her skills playing the piano and creating her own songs and lyrics.
Nourished by the experiences of the Big Apple, Alima then relocated to Southern California where she met with Andres Ramos, Vincent Ramos, and Scott Ramsay of NEVERWONDER. The chemistry was instant, and the fusion of Alima's soulfulness and the rock/funk vibe of NEVERWONDER, brilliant. And it was here that Alima found her place as the lead singer of one of Southern California's most progressive and dynamic bands, blending a full range of styles to create a unique sound that is at once unexpected, innovative and harmonious. She looks forward to hitting the stages with her new band mates and connecting with the NEVERWONDER fanbase and beyond.
