Adia Victoria

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.”

Influenced by Kurt Cobain, Miles Davis, and Fiona Apple, Adia Victoria‘s unapologetic search for self-expression is both critical and clear of normative Nashville tropes. She resets expectations for Black girls with guitars, writing dark-humored lyrics that scrape her own self-awareness against gritty gothic-blues guitar riffs. Balanced out with the inherent honesty of Appalachian twang, Adia’s voice glides with words of coarse reflection, gentle coos thick with swampy rebellion.

Rolling Stone Magazine featured Adia Victoria as one of “10 New Artists You Need to Know.” The Village Voice called her an “eerie, intriguing songwriter,” with “bone chilling guitar riffs and lyrics topped with candid scorn.” Vogue highlighted the recording artist as one of “5 Beauties Who Answer to Afropunk’s Rebellious Call.”

Adia Victoria will perform at The Syndicate Lounge with Dead Balloons and New Devils Friday, May 27th. You do not want to miss it. This New Music Monday features Adia Victoria’s Sea of Sand EP, a slice of her debut LP, Beyond the Bloodhounds, released May 13th.
