Girl in a Coma’s Both Before I’m Gone cd on Blackheart Records has debuted on the Billboard Heatseekers chart at #23. In addition, the disc recently debuted on Itunes at #21, selling more copies than Sara Bareilles, Black Keys, Gnarls Barkley and Vampire Weekend. Both Before I’m Gone also landed at #6 on Itunes rock chart. 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 ³the female version of Morrissey and has been compared to artists as diverse as Bjork and Patsy Cline. 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.

In 2006, they were picked for SI TV¹s 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 song writing partner, Kenny Laguna immediately, on camera signed them to their label, blackheart records. Since then the girls haven't looked back. They've tour with Social Distortion, The Pogues, The Cliks, Frank Black and The Catholics, and with the man himself, Morrissey. In fact, Morrissey was so taken with the band that he asked them to open uis US and European tours this past fall & winter. Their debut album, Both Before I'm Gone features the singles“Clumsy Sky,” “Road To Home” and their latest “Say.” In addition, the girls recently performed on Dave Navarro's "Spread" TV show on ManiaTV and taped an episode of ”La Ink” where lead singer Nina will get a tattoo by one of the worlds most sought after and celebrated tattoo artists, Kat Von D. Look for Girl in a Coma to continue on the road this spring and make a special appearance on the upcoming “True Colors” tour with Cyndi Lauper, B-52’s, Andy Bell of Erasure and Joan Jett.
