Adia Victoria is establishing a fresh reference point on the musical landscape. From blood-born howls to
idiosyncratic phrasing, she is the big red dot saying You Are Here. The Nashville-based artist travels the
lands of rock, afro punk, and country, squarely situated in the continent of the Blues.
Ask about her artistic goals, and the songwriter/vocalist will say, “I want to shine a light on the unseen, and
speak the unspeakable.” Adia Victoria is a truth teller. She admits, “I don’t necessarily paint myself in a
flattering light. This isn’t the pop version of pretty or the strategically posed pretty-ugly. Sometimes I’m
just ugly. There’s a brat in some of these songs, selfish, naïve, vengeful, but there’s also a tender eye that
just wants the listener to feel seen and understood.”
