Why You Should Pay Attention: South Carolina-born and Nashville-based Adia Victoria has only officially released one song but she’s already solidified herself as one of country music’s most exciting new stars. Since June, her eerie, angst-y anti-Southern pride anthem “Stuck in the South” has gained thousands of SoundCloud plays; and she spoke on a panel in Yale’s Department of African-American Studies about Paramount Records alongside Greil Marcus and Jack White. “Everything still kind of feels the same,” says Victoria, who just began her first-ever tour. “This year I look most forward to distill the world around me into art.” Roger Moutenot, who has worked with Yo La Tengo and Sleater-Kinney, is producing her upcoming LP.

She Says: “I think I bring to the table a voice not given much attention. As a marginally employed, self-driven woman of color there aren’t many microphones being shoved in my face or chances to speak my own truth. Perhaps people should check out my music to find that the superficial differences that society erects between people are just that — not real. You might just find you have more in common with the girl handing you your burger at the drive through than the gilded millionaire on the radio trying to twerk her way into relevancy.”
