While writing her second full-length album, Silences, Adia Victoria spent time in the stacks of the Vanderbilt University library, poring over the works of women she admires — from Toni Morrison to Virginia Woolf to Tillie Olsen, whose 1978 novel inspired the album’s title.

“I consider myself a writer first and foremost, and I don’t feel like I need to hold people’s hands and tell them what they’re supposed to get from my songs,” Victoria said. “I [write] from a subversive, very much blues-informed point of view, which proved to be a revelation for me as a young woman getting into music. I wanted to keep my ability to thumb my nose at the status quo, and let people know it’s okay to see things differently.”
