Adia Victoria is on a journey through the conflicts of the American South and the troubling resonance of its past. Her dark gothic blues bring the troubles and wonders of the South to the stage with vibrant poignancy. Last year, Victoria released her critically acclaimed album A Southern Gothic last year, Adia was just nominated for 2 Americana Music Awards for 2022 Emerging Act of the Year and Album of the Year. Adia also recently shared A Southern Gothic B-Side, “In the Pines.” The track is available exclusively via Bandcamp and all proceeds will go to the Carolina Abortion Fund.
Good Morning America noted, “A Southern Gothic sounds like something from another century, making it one of the most unusually stirring records of the year,” NPR who declared “Victoria crafted stunning, heat-infused blues vignettes that brilliantly capture the painful depth of Southern racism and the frustrations and complications of being a Black woman in the south.” Adia Victoria will live up to all these acclaims at The Chapel on July 5.
