Girl in a Coma

Girl in a Coma Biography

Girl in a Coma hail from San Antonio, Texas—land of puffy tacos, Lone Star beer, and the place where Ozzy pissed on the Alamo. Nina Diaz, who was 12 when the band formed, is often referred to as "the female version of Morrissey" and has been compared to artists as diverse as Bjork, Patsy Cline and Morrissey, himself. Her powerful, expressive voice, mature beyond its years, is unforgettable to anyone who hears her sing. With Jenn Alva on bass and Phanie D on drums, this band has been likened to The Smiths, The Pixies, and The Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs.

The girls recorded their first demo with Boz Borrer, musical director for Morrissey in London in 2004. In 2006, they were picked for SI TV's docu series Jammin' where they were flown to New York and had a surprise meeting with their idol Joan Jett. Joan and her long time producer and songwriting partner, Kenny Laguna, immediately on camera signed them to their label, Blackheart Records. Girl in a Coma have opened for The Pogues, The Smoking Popes, Frank Black and The Catholics, The Epoxies, and will be setting out on a headline tour to support their debut album, Both Before I'm Gone, featuring the first single & video "Clumsy Sky."
