Rolling Stone recently named the Nashville singer/songwriter as “an artist you need to know.”

This winter, Victoria released “Sea of Sand”, the follow-up to her debut track “Stuck In The South”.

Listen – Adia Victoria, “Sea of Sand”:

In a press release, she said she wrote the song “while stranded in Harlem in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. After the storm passed, I ventured out of my cousin’s apartment to survey the damage done. As I walked downtown past uprooted trees and overturned cars I considered my life in New York City as a 19-year-old girl. Then another snapshot came to my mind of my brief time in Tucson, then my years in Atlanta flashed before me and even glimpses of my hometown of Campebello, SC. As I walked I tried to piece together a narrative, desperately searching for a strand uniting all these young women I had been throughout my youth.

“This song speaks to the various – and oftentimes battling – states of consciousness residing within the human mind at any given time. Do our experiences define us? Who are we apart from what the world has done to us?”

Rolling Stone said “Stuck In the South” as “PJ Harvey covering Loretta Lynn at a haunted debutante ball” and went on to say that the singer “has only officially released one song but she’s already solidified herself as one of country music’s most exciting new stars.”
