The girls have been rocking the San Antonio scene since they were in middle school playing for talent shows, birthday parties, and local punk rock clubs. After three years of practicing they took the road and began building a loyal fan base. In 2006, Girl in a Coma played in front of Joan Jett and long-time songwriting partner and producer, Kenny Laguna, at New York’s Knitting Factory as part of a cable TV show featuring unknown bands. Joan and Kenny were so impressed with the band, they ended up signing them to their label, Blackheart Records, that same day.
In 2007, Girl in a Coma released their debut album, ‘Both Before I’m Gone’. It quickly became a hit reaching No. 23 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart and No. 21 on iTunes. The album even received amazing reviews from Alternative Press Magazine, LA Weekly, Bust Magazine, and many others. The girls’ first single from the album, ‘Clumsy Sky’, won a 2007 Independent Music Award in the Best Song-Punk category.
The success off their first album landed them a spot on Cyndi Lauper’s tour, ‘True Colors’. They even opened for bands such as the Pogues, Social Distortion, Tegan and Sara in a cross-country nation tour, and with Morrissey in both Europe and the U.S.
