Adia Victoria releases “Baby Blues” EP: features Adia’s take on 3 classic blues tracks
MORE ABOUT ADIA VICTORIA:
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 Fader, Rookie, Teen 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 FADER. Dangerous 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.
