Amy Correia

Amy Correia writes and delivers songs with a raw power that's both vulnerable and fierce. A dynamic performer who plays guitar, piano and baritone ukelele, her musical honesty draws comparison to Tom Waits and the New York Times calls her a "singular talent." After two major releases on EMI, Correia recently scored a creative victory by raising more than 35K to produce and release her third record, You Go Your Way, which was critically praised and won the 2012 Independent Music Award for Best Folk Singer-Songwriter album. Performing with her stellar band for the first time in Northampton, Correia will perform with Andy Plaisted on drums, Kimon Kirk on bass and Mike Castellana on electric guitar.

"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 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 that ate the canary than the fragile bird itself.'
