Amy Correia delivers songs with a raw power that’s both vulnerable and fierce. That musical honesty has drawn comparisons to Tom Waits and Michelle Shocked and The New York Times calls her “a singular talent.” After two major releases on EMI, Amy Correia recently scored a creative and entrepreneurial victory by raising more than $35K to produce and release her third record, You Go Your Way. An early convert to the “fan-funded album,” Correia’s new album “veers seamlessly from arena rock to gospel music, that includes both power chords and a string quartet.” (NPR). American Songwriter writes she’s “back in top form with another rootsy gem of an album…Correia shows off her Rod Stewart-meets-Lucinda Williams pipes on Powder Blue Trans Am.” A dynamic performer who accompanies herself on guitar, piano and baritone ukelele, Correia recently returned home from a 28-city tour of the U.S., opening for legendary frontwoman of The Pretenders, Chrissie Hynde. Hynde and her musical partner, JP Jones, hand-picked Correia to open for their new project after seeing Correia perform live. (Her live show is not to be missed!) Correia has also toured extensively with Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Marc Cohn (“Walking in Memphis”), opening shows and performing as a member of his stellar band, appearing on Good Morning America, Ellen Degeneres, The View and The Today Show.
