Album Notes
If lust and angst spawned a love child its name would be Nico Vega. Hailing from the American Midwest and Pacific Northwest, Nico Vega has dug deep and planted its roots in Hollywood, CA, though Hollywood is not their only conquest. It’s merely a heavy sleepover before the trip begins.

Aja Volkman’s sultry raw vocals front the band in an onslaught of love as she shakes, stomps and stimulates the eyes and ears of the crowd. Nico Vega’s distinct sound is rounded out by Rich Koehler’s gritty guitar. The band’s backbone is reinforced by Mikey Pena’s instinctive drumming style.
Nico Vega has impacted the music scene in a dynamic way this past year with their aggressive live show and refreshingly unique sound, tantalizing fans and heavyweights industry wide.

Nico Vega is a cult, not a band - so drink the punch.


I was already running late getting to the Troubadour to check out Nico Vega. And to make matters worse my friend and I could not find parking. Luckily we made it just in time. They were just beginning to set up for Nico Vega's set. When I first got in the place seemed a bit empty but by the time N.V went on the place was packed.

N.V sure knows how to put on a show. Once I got an eye on Aja, the singer, it was hard to look away. Her good lucks, sultry voice, and killer stage presence make her truly a site to see. About mid way through their set she acted out a dialog of a women fed up with her lover. And the part of the lover was played by the guitar. I was digging it and wished they would have played a bit longer. They are playing at SXSW and if you are lucky enough to be able to make it there you should definitely check em out.

From beginning to end I was amazed! The energy of the music, lyrics, and vocals was off the charts!!


They capture the live sound I heard.
My intro to Nico Vega was at the Troubador in SooCal, back when they didn't have a CD. Great show / great sound. They captured the live experience very well on the CD - I was worried I was going to get the CD and wonder whose music I purchased.

I'm only disappointed there aren't more tracks - gimmie more Nico Vega!

i love NV
CD is amazing, never gets old, and WELL WORTH THE WAIT AND MONEY.

so much love.


WTF!!! Best thing to come out of LA in the last 3-5 years
Where did these guys (and gal) come from!? Holy shit.. I saw them at HFS and was literally speachless. I want more more more!!!!


If I could give 10 stars I would!! This CD is amazing! If you ever get a chance to check them out live, do it.. There is so much energy in their live show it blew me away!

Unbelievable! You kids are awesome!
Saw you in Austin and was amazed how much all that rock music your mom, dad and me blared when your were a toddler (Rich) inspired you to rock! Your sound is so different it will take the music industry by storm. Aja you are not only talented and gifted singer but a really sweet person. I can't wait to see you in Houston someday. Love ya - Aunt Laura & Uncle Tim

This cd is AMAZING! I am absolutely in love with it. I haven't taken it out of my cd player since I bought it. I could listen to it over and over again! Thanks for the GREAT show at HFS and the beautiful music! Hope there's much more to come!!

Think PJ Harvey meets White Stripes. Clever, charming and brilliant !!!
This disc opens w/ Rabbit in the Bag.A politically charged anthem for Pro choice/rights. A call to women and men everywhere to stand up against the powers that be, I`ll bet(rich white,right wing christians/politicans)And ask ourselves "do you mind being left outside of it all" ? Hollywood Sign is next. This up tempo rocker is fun yet dark in content. Possibly their first "radio" single.Let you go- my personal favorite(it`s even on my MySpace profile)I just love this song ! Clever, intelligent lyrics.Ethereal and spacious guitars.Brilliant and beautiful. Maybe their first "radio" single.Oh yea` I already said, well fuck it.They all could be singles if you ask me ! Favorite line..." i wanna kiss away the hard sweater on your skin" Beast is the last cut.Another politically charged mover,more great lyrics by Aja "tiptoeing soilders aint gonna change nobody`s mind". To me this is hands down the BEST unsigned LA rock band, period.And take it from someone that works @ a club in LA. I`ve seen a ton of bands over the last few years and, NICOVEGA`s the next big thing ! So buy their CD already can thank me for the heads up later. sean

Amazing, spectacular, orgasmic, almost a religious experience...
I saw Nicovaga at SXSW in Austin TX and I have to say i hear a lot of new music come through this town, but nothing like Nicovega has been through here in a long time! It was so awesome i fell in love! Your sound is so fresh and raw and your lyrics are bold and provacative, i cant wait till you release more original music and next time you come through Austin, you have a huge following here now, led by me of course!!


Little Short but AWESOME!!
I loved it, it wasn't songs that I heard on her site, so it took a couple listenings to get the feel of it. But it was amazing!! I love her voice, nobody has impressed me that intensely since I got introduced to Brody from the Distillers
