Adia Victoria’s path to music wound through different disciplines: ballet, poetry, and acting. She moved to songwriting after a friend gave her an acoustic guitar she didn’t yet know how to play. The songs that came out in Victoria’s unique voice were deeply rooted in the blues tradition, with hard-hitting personal lyrics. Her first album, “Beyond the Bloodhounds,” was named after the book “Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl” by Harriet Jacobs. Her new record, “Silences,” was released in February.
