Adia Victoria is a former a ballet dancer, telemarketer and French major turned one of "country music’s most exciting new stars," at least, as far as Rolling Stone is concerned. A Nashville-based artist, Victoria’s music is rooted in the down home musical stylings of the southland, namely rock, country and blues. The Village Voice has called her an "eerie, intriguing songwriter" and listening to her music, it’s not hard to understand why as it proves rich with the intricate and telling details of her personal story, one of a young African-American female singer who grew up amidst a strict Seventh Day Adventist atmosphere in South Carolina. Working with acclaimed indie producer Roger Moutenot (Yo La Tengo, Sleater Kinney) on such recent singles as "Sea Of Sand" and "Stuck In The South," Victoria’s latest music ably demonstrates her penchant for penning emotionally stimulating songs on such topics as love, loss, and confusion. With a full-length album and a U.S. tour ahead, 2016 is bound to be a big one for Adia Victoria.
