Adia Victoria - WXPN
Where They’re From: Spartanburg, SC
Who They Are: It’s hard to see singer-songwriter Adia Victoria and not be blown away, from her charismatic performance and confident stage presence, to the interaction she has with her audience, and the way she weaves her love of the blues and her Southern upbringing into a unique mix of electric blues, garage and punk flavored rock, and dark roots and R&B. There’s an eerie ambience to her music, and she’s been influenced by Fiona Apple and blues singer and songwriter Victoria Spivey. Born in South Carolina and raised in the Seventh Day Adventist church, (her mom is from Philly and her dad is from Trinidad), Victoria was named an XPN Artist to Watch in July of 2016, has played NON-COMM and XPoNential Music Festival multiple times.
Years Active: 2013 – present
Essential Albums: Beyond the Bloodhounds (2016), A Southern Gothic (2021)
