“Amy’s talent, in a sometimes cluttered musical world, is not lost on me. ‘You Go Your Way’ is one of my very favorite albums of the past year. A+” Michael Buckley, Producer/Host, The Sunday Brunch on 103.1 WRNR-FM (www.wrnr.com)

“After graduating from Barnard, AMY CORREIA lived in Chinatown and wrote advertising copy to support herself while she wrote songs to save her soul. She performed them in little clubs on the Lower East Side, and her third album, “You Go Your Way,” won the 2012 Independent Music Award for Best Folk Singer-Songwriter, though the term “folk” is awfully limiting for songs this rhythmic and rootsy.” The New Yorker

“Amy Correia’s “You Go Your Way” is something of a wonder to behold.  In turns biting, buoyant and even whimsical, it radiates with an aura of diverse influences and a musical self-assuredness that belies the Massachusetts native’s skeptical, questioning lyrics. Those influences include any number of tough-on-the-outside female vocalists, Correia’s crisp rasp recalling the likes of Joni Mitchell, Janis Joplin and Bonnie Raitt. But in the end, her rootsy, swampy, world-weary delivery, full of confident, bluesy strumming, sumptuous strings and searing background harmonies, is indelibly hers — and utterly appealing.”   Peter Chianca, Gatehouse News Service

“It’s fun to try to place Amy Correia on the contemporary musical landscape. 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 on 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, The Star Ledger (NJ)

“With her sultry voice and poetic lyrics, Amy Correia is SouthCoast’s own Lucinda Williams.” Lauren Daley, South Coast Today

“sublime”  Ed Condran, The Home Tribune (NJ)

“glorious…unique….innovative…” (4 STARS out of 5) Koos Gijsman, HEAVEN Magazine, The Netherlands

” **** It won’t take more than a single spin of Amy Correia’s delightful “You Go Your Way” release to see why the album was nominated for three Independent Music Awards. The 11 track release finds Correia at the top of her game with her bluesy vocals and ear-pleasing arrangements.”  Jeffrey Sisk, In Tune, The Daily News (PA)

“Correia has an enveloping voice and a unique take on the singer/songwriter genre, making her 11-song collection riveting listening. She kicks the album off with a rather astonishing three-punch combo of the title track, “Love Changes Everything,” and “Powder Blue Trans Am.”….You Go Your Way has a rare spark. The album glides along at its own pace, unfurling interesting characters, insights and melodies along the way. ” Stephen Carradini, Independent Clauses

“Amy’s album “You Go Your Way” is in line with the craftiest and most eloquent rock records I’ve heard in a good while. It’s lyrical in a Tom Waits sort of way, mixing a playful sense of longing with a restless heart full of realization and reconciliation.” Michael Buckley, Capital Gazette
