Don't you dare say that Adia Victoria makes Americana. She will correct you and say, "Adia Victoria does not sing Americana, Adia Victoria sings the blues." The American artist has been doing that for three albums now, after she decided to leave South Carolina and pursue her dreams elsewhere. Now based in Nashville, the singer-songwriter tells stories that challenge expectations about black women and address social and psychological themes. She plays tribute to the southern states of the USA on her latest album, 'A Southern Gothic' (2021), which is described as a "brave", "uncompromising" and "richly textured" work by Rolling Stone.
