Nico Vega

Not the solo artist one might assume from the name, Nico Vega is an alterna-rock trio from Los Angeles, CA. The band bio on the group's MySpace page explains the name thusly: "Nico Vega represents a modern day saint. A warrior that has led us to a more fulfilling, lighter way of being. She represents people and unity." (This manifesto goes on for another 228 words, but that's the gist.) Featuring singer and lyricist Aja Volkman, a vocal dead ringer for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Karen O who claims Janis Joplin and Tina Turner as her primary musical heroes, Nico Vega incorporates those vintage soul and blues influences into their spiky indie rock tunes, suggesting a musical affinity with the likes of the White Stripes, Black Keys, and Fiery Furnaces. Nico Vega formed in 2005; Volkman, a native of Eugene, OR, had dropped out of theater school at the California Institute for the Arts, giving herself one year to establish herself as a solo singer/songwriter in nearby Hollywood. Volkman was most of the way through her self-imposed trial period and almost ready to move back home to Oregon when drummer Mikey Pena happened into one of her solo gigs. Joining forces, the pair quickly added guitarist Rich Koehler to form the bass-less trio. After releasing their debut EP, Choose Your Words Poorly, on their own in early 2006 and establishing themselves as a popular draw on the local concert scene thanks in large part to Volkman's uninhibited and minimally clothed on-stage performance style, Nico Vega signed with MySpace Records, the new recording arm of the popular social networking site, for their second EP, 2007's No Child Left Behind. A full-length debut album was scheduled for early 2008. ~ Stewart Mason, Rovi

Why won't iTunes let me find "this too shall pass" on the no child left behind album? It is one of the best songs by nico vega. Aja's voice is perfect in it, Rich's riffs are amazing, and Dan is great with precusion in it.
This bothers me so much. No Home is virtually invisible from the world. Its not on ITunes and only youtube. anyone know where I can find it?

This description of Nico Vega is awful! It doesn't say anything about Dan Epand who has been their drummer since 2006 or their bass player Jamila Weaver. Dan replaced Micheal Pena who went on to become a famous actor.
Coming to Albuquerque Thursday. Way beyond stoked.
Aja's voice is so unique and flawless. Even her solo songs are amazing.

if you ever get a chance to see them live GO they are incredible and Aja is beautiful completely possesed and passionate on stage . my favorite show this year !!!
I love her and the band, and yes you cant compare her t Karen O. They are two different women with different styles. Granted they both have Great stage presence.
She is one of the greatest performers/a r t i s t s I've ever seen. This band is beautiful inside and out.
rabidelephan t s
she sounds nothing like karen o- , stylisticall y or otherwise, are you kidding me- this write up sucks!! does not do the band justice- -
million years is awesome song
Million Years sounds like nu metal to me. People were supposed to move from rap metal to Prince worship. someone send them a memo. they need more songs like burn burn. i saw them a while ago in my podunk town and the girl apparently didnt know that i dont dance in public. I think she was angry. Thats none of my business. I shouldnt be expected to dance to nu metal. Send another memo
so amazing. I can't get enough of Aja. great music!
"Gravitiy" rips paint off of ceilings.
Aja is so connected with her audience.. the band just adds onto the experience that literally leaves you in awe.
jessheth
love it!

i love her
any acoustic stuff is amazing with her voice.
