N8VSOUL is a reggae-influenced, dub/electronic collaboration between New Zealand singer, songwriter & producer Carla Werner and Cali-Native bassist, Alison Wünderland.
The pair were introduced in the Summer of 2015 at SoCal’s highly reputed reggae festival, ‘Reggae On the Mountain’ where they played their first show together, which also included their ‘now’ regular drummer Rock Deadrick (Ziggy Marley), and the keys/horn genius of John McKnight (Fishbone).
