Akina Adderley: “Broke”

Posted by on Oct 12, 2020

Back when KUTX first started in 2013, one of early favorites was Austin singer¬†Akina Adderley. But in the years since, Adderley’s devoted more and more of her time both as one third of retro “girl pop” trio Charlie Faye & The Fayettes and as the fearless orator at the head of world jazz group NORI, all the while continuing her legacy of bold, Afro-inspired vocals.

With early voting in Texas beginning tomorrow, Adderley’s unfurled her first solo single since 2012, once again boasting her gargantuan voice on a call to action that places Adderley in the pantheon of rock-soul champions like Aretha Franklin, on “Broke”!
