Winona Fighter

The Nashville based punk band Winona Fighter is breathing new life into the resurging punk scene, and on a mission to create punk music that is accessible and accepting to all music lovers willing to listen.

Coco’s (front-woman of Winona Fighter) introduction to the Boston punk rock scene at an early age was the catalyst for her current sound and stage presence. Moving to Nashville gave her a task to expose all music lovers to the power of thrashable tunes. After recruiting lead guitarist Dan Fuson, they set off to do the scene Coco had left behind justice. Eventually the two of them added Austin Luther (bass/producer) to the family.

The band is recognized as an energized powerhouse during their live performances. Their shows are a space where all bullshit and ego is left at the door - everyone is welcome, equal and needs to get on their fucking feet. They have opened for the bands Incubus, Motion City Soundtrack, Taking Back Sunday, The Offspring in addition to playing multiple sets at Bonnaroo 2023 and Is For Lover’s Festivals and Shiprocked 2024. Upcoming touring includes performances at SXSW and Supporting Bayside.
