Amy Correia’s third album “You Go Your Way” “veers seamlessly from arena rock to gospel music, that includes both power chords and a string quartet.” (NPR) Correia delivers her songs with a raw power that’s both vulnerable and fierce. That musical honesty draws comparisons to Cat Power and Neil Young and The New York Times calls her a “singular talent.” Her fans agree, pitching in to raise more than $35,000 to make “You Go Your Way”. The album “basics” were recorded in 3 days by Jay Bellerose (drums), Paul Bryan (bass) & Correia (acoustic gtr, bari uke, piano). Producer, Paul Bryan (Aimee Mann) made a “fine album with spare, sharp rhythm parts highlighting the strong, bluesy vocals, and featuring uncommonly effective string-quartet arrangements” (The New Yorker).
