Nina Diaz

Known for her work with Girl in a Coma (named after the Smiths song, “Girlfriend in a Coma,”) which formed in 2001, Nina Diaz has since embarked on a solo career. Though Diaz was just 12 years old when she started performing with Girl in a Coma, the band caught the attention of Smiths producer Boz Boorer with whom they recorded their first demo, as well as Joan Jett, resulting into their being signed to the Blackhearts label.
