Adia Victoria
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"
Erica Russo
Traveling folk songs tangled in the spin of worn tires and waves of golden hearts

In Between Dreams— In tone, mood, instrumentation and narrative, this is wildly creative but steadfastly consistent collection. Russo’s strange and wonderful voice stitches those parts into a consummate whole.
-MOUNTAIN XPRESS, Top 5 local albums of 2015

"Sometimes you know somethings good because it gives you those little shivers down your spine. When Erica Russo, head honcho of, well, Erica Russo and the Good Sports starts singing, it has this sort of fragile beauty that it caused much squirming in the backseat mafia offices (my front room). But then it also confounds you, because just as you begin to think this is a folky little gem, then it suddenly throws in a bit of slightly more angular indie pop, twisting and turning your expectations. It’s like the bubblegum in Charlie and the Chocolate factory that gives you a three course meal the more you chew it." -BACKSEAT MAFIA

"A band out of Cambridge, Massachusetts that have put together one of the more effortlessly cool albums of 2013 in thir LP Little House, Little Hill that was released a little earlier this year. The album blends together Erica's heartfelt and honest lyrical style with a delightful music backing that moves between whimsical and wonderful at all times. To put it simply, Erica is more than your average artist trying to break into the music industry. She's an individul that lives and breathes her craft, and the results can be seen and heard in her music." - TAKEN BY SOUND

"Our featured artist this week is New York folk band Erica Russo And The Good Sport consisting of Erica herself, Billy Leva, John Zurek and Ryland Hall. Not your average day folk band, these guys bring fire of truth and energy into their songs. After listening to their new album Little House, Little Hill this week, Erica Russo and The Good Sport are certainly ones to watch out for. Describing their sound as ‘Like light coming through orange curtains onto an honest, stripped down and dirty wall. Soft, but with a fire of truth and energy’ - fragile yet beautiful with drops of folk, indie and articulate vocals, their music will leave you wanting more." - THE FLUX
