Ask Adia Victoria outright about her life and you'll be met with a few readied no-fluff bullet points: she's from South Carolina. She was raised seventh day Adventist. She started playing guitar at twenty one and she's never stopped moving. On the rare chance she divulges more, you'll quickly notice a common theme threading itself through her story--rivers.

"When I was 18, I stood on the bank of the Seine. I didn't have a friend in Paris and I thought about jumping in and letting the water take me where ever."

At nineteen she hovered above the East River, newly arrived in New York City, and whispered to the city "I'm gonna rule the world."

She will tell you at twenty three she saw the Chattahoochee swell up and swallow Sandy Springs. At eight years old the Pacolet River in her native Campobello washed away her black patent leather shoes.

Adia moved to Nashville in 2010 just after the Cumberland devastated the city's downtown and started moonlighting solo in clubs and bars around town. After three years of playing out between her school schedule and family life she formed a band with Ruby Rogers, Tiffany Minton and Mason Hickman to flesh out her primitive songs on misery, madness, hope beyond reason and the eponymous South.

"The one thing I like most about rivers is that they never stop to explain. They just keep moving"

"These kids ain't no joke, as they say in the streets. You just dont hear this style of music too much anymore. Makes you want to go buy a Marshall, turn it up as loud as it can go, and piss your neighbors off. It's good to know that kids still know how to do things the way they were meant to be done. Really Loud!"-- Tommy Conwell
