Adia Victoria releases “Baby Blues” EP: features Adia’s take on 3 classic blues tracks


Today sees Adia Victoria release a new EP, Baby Blues which consists of  three vintage blues tracks, each marked with Adia’s unique interpretation.  Adia notes, “When I first rolled into Nashville, I didn’t have my own music. All I had were the blues. To keep me company on endless bus rides ’round the city, these songs served as an affirmation of my silenced inner life. The blues keep me true to myself.”  She is dedicating the project to the memory of Those Darlins’ Jessi Zazu who passed away in September.  
Baby Blues tracklisting: 
1. Me And The Devil (Robert Johnson)
2. Evil Hearted Me (Victoria Spivey)
3. Ugly Brown (Lee Hazelwood)
2017 has been a busy one for Adia.  She released the How It Feels EP in the spring and following that toured Europe.  The summer saw her play the Forecastle Festival, the XPoNential Music Festival and July dates supporting Sturgill Simpson.  Most recently Adia supported The National at their sold-out Boston show, performed at the Foo Fighters-curated CalJam Festival in Los Angeles and the Afropunk Festival in Atlanta.” 
Victoria is currently working on the follow up to her critically acclaimed debut album Beyond The Bloodhounds.


Adia’s musical introduction to the world came in the form of 3 tracks released over 18 months – “Stuck In The South,” “Sea of Sand,” and “Howlin’ Shame.” The music was quick to resonate and publications like FaderRookieTeen Vogue and NPR.  Rolling Stone 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.”  With the release of her debut album Beyond The Bloodhounds in early 2016 the critical acclaim grew.  She performed on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert and toured North America and the world. 

Beyond The Bloodhounds is a compilation of gothic, sharp witted, and fiery folk that is excellent,” said  FADERDangerous Minds says “Adia Victoria’s gestalt can be summed up in a musical Venn diagram wherein PJ Harvey, Fiona Apple and Hank Williams meet Jack White, Chelsea Wolfe, St. Vincent, Gary Clark Jr. and Patti Smith. She’s an incredible guitarist. In her songwriting she has a remarkable talent for getting straight to the point. Her literate lyrics are sharply observed; direct yet intangible, so the listener can project themselves onto her poetry.”  “Consider this a classic in the making” exclaimed Bust
