Nashville based Adia Victoria plays her first ever UK show at Servant Jazz Quarters.
Adia’s debut album ‘Beyond The Bloodhounds’ is due for release on May 13 th via Atlantic Records. Mixing old folk, deep southern country and blues with poetic yet political lyrics, and ghostly vocals, ‘Beyond The Bloodhounds’ is a bold statement of intent from this ferociously talented artist.
Talking about the album, she has to say “I wrote this album as a memorial to my 20s. Those are tender years for a lot of women. It hurts.” ‘Beyond The Bloodhounds’ was produced by Roger Moutenot (Yo La Tengo, Sleater Kinney) and the artist herself and recorded at Nashville, Tennessee’s Haptown Studios, The album features the indelible lyrics, voice, and guitar solos of Adia Victoria along with a band of talented musicians including Tiffany Minton (Drums), Alex Caress (keys), Mason Hickman (guitar), and Jason Harris (bass).
Growing up in Spartanburg, South Carolina and raised in a strict, Seventh Day Adventist atmosphere, Adia knows about feeling less than whole. But following her inner voice, and creating a new life for herself in New York, Atlanta, and now Nashville (with stints in Paris and Germany) honed a self-assured voice that resists the outside gaze. Taking influence from current artists such as the White Stripes and early Kings Of Leon, alongside 20 th century blues artists from the American south, Adia weaves literary influences from classic novels with the issues of race and feminism to striking effect.
