Akina Adderley: “Broke”

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”!
