In February, Adia Victoria released the critically acclaimed LP ‘Silences’ (Canvasback), and the momentum has been strong ever since. On release day, she and her band embarked on the Dope Queen Tour, playing to audiences across North America, and April saw her do the same in the UK and Europe. Adia opened for Tank & The Bangas, The National, and Calexico + Iron & Wine and is now back stateside, touring the U.S. with stops at WXPN's NON-COMM convention in Philadelphia and Boston Calling, along with an upcoming performance at Newport Folk Festival. "Adia Victoria captures the spirit of the blues in a simple phrase," said NPR: "black genius."
