09/11/19 - Amy Correia

A mesmerizing performer, whose mixture of raw power and musical honesty has been compared to Michelle Shocked and Tom Waits by The New York Times music critic Jon Pareles.

After two major label releases with EMI, her first independent release, “You Go Your Way,” went on to receive international raves from fans and critics alike and won the 2012 Independent Music Award for Best Folk, Singer Songwriter album, “though the term ‘folk’ is awfully limiting for songs this rhythmic and rootsy.” (The New Yorker ). She’ll be joined by the songwriter and bassist/producer KIMON KIRK (Gaby Moreno, Alejandro Escobedo).

Press about Amy Correia's "You Go Your Way"

Nothing short of a masterpiece.” Steve Almond, author of Rock N Roll Will Save Your Life.

She’s back in top form with “You Go Your Way” another rootsy gem of an album.” Evan Schlansky, American Songwriter

…a fine record, with spare, sharp rhythm parts highlighting the strong, bluesy vocals, and featuring uncommonly effective string-quartet arrangements by Paul Bryan” The New Yorker

Her distinctive brand of musical storytelling sets her outside the usual set of quirky female singer-songwriters making her as one New York Times reviewer claimed, ‘more like the cat who eats the canary than the fragile bird itself.'” Anthony DeCurtis, sitting in for John Schaefer, WNYC’s Soundcheck.

 “….a singer-songwriter to watch. Her voice, too, is an unusual and original one: She’s got hints of Sam Phillips and Aimee Mann, but she sounds more knowing than either one.” Tris McCall, Star Ledger.
