Amy Correia's "You Go Your Way" won the Independent Music Award for Best Folk/Singer-Songwriter Album of 2011. "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. Her musical honesty and lyrical dexterity draws comparisons to Bob Dylan and Tom Wait 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). "She's back in top form with another rootsy gem of an album." -- American Songwriter "sublime" --Ed Condran (NJ Home Tribune)
