Three years later Girl in a Coma was signed to Joan Jett & The Blackhearts Blackheart Records, thus beginning many years of extensive touring, writing and performing for audiences around the world. In 2014, Nina began her journey as a solo artist and soon released her debut album "The Beat is Dead" on Cosmica Records (2016).
