Aja’s band, Nico Vega, has toured and performed with Imagine Dragons, Neon Trees, No Doubt, Blondie, and Gavin Rossdale.
After a solo performance in 2005 in Los Angeles, California, guitarist Rich Koehler and drummer Mike Peña (who was later replaced by Dan Epand when Peña pursued his acting career) approached Aja about creating a band. They created their three-member band, Nico Vega, with Aja as the lead singer. The group has released two albums Nico Vega (2009) and Lead To Light (2014). Billboard described Lead To Light as possessing “some of the most unstoppable pop-rock hooks heard all year.” After a hiatus announced on 6 June 2016, the band returned on 5 April 2018 when Volkman announced a new single and a return on her Instagram.
In 2010, Aja met her husband when Imagine Dragons opened for her band in Las Vegas at Wasted Space.

In 2011 they recorded and released an EP they titled Egyptian.
