Born in Paris, France in 1963, Spanish jazz-pop singer and composer Sole (Soledad) Giménez began performing in the trio Presuntos Implicados
with her brother, guitarist Juan Luis Giménez
, in their native town of Yecla (Murcia), Spain in 1983.
The trio originally also included the siblings' friend Pablo Gómez, who was replaced by bassist/guitarist Javier Vela
in 1985. In the year of their founding, Presuntos Implicados
won a radio competition for their rendition of the song "Miss Circuito," and RCA
issued their first album, 1984's Danzad Danzad Malditos, which earned the group a sizable following thanks to heavy airplay. De Sol a Sol (1987) paved the way for a groundswell in popularity, ultimately resulting in a major contract for Presuntos Implicados
. After Javier Vela
was replaced by new trio member Nacho Mañó, the trio's third record, Alma de Blues, was released by Warner
in 1989. The album generated hits such as "Me Das el Mar" and "Cada Historia," which were put on heavy rotation on radio stations throughout Spain. The group's career and discography flourished throughout the '90s. Ser de Agua (1991), El Pan y la Sal (1994), La Noche (1996), Siete (1997), and Versión Original (1999) all served to spread Presuntos Implicados
' music and fame throughout Spain and Latin America.
