You Go Your Way

Three albums on, Amy Correia continues to expand her palette, expressing herself through songs that cover a wide musical terrain, both stylistically and geographically. With Correia’s sturdy vocals at the fore, the arrangements range from laidback to brassy to string-laden serenades. The vocal performances on the fan-financed You Go Your Way conjure up comparisons to Bonnie Raitt (on “You Go Your Way”) Carole King (“Love Changes Everything”), Michelle Shocked (“Carolina Rail”) and Susan Tedeschi (“O Lord”). Correia writes from the perspective of people seeking answers that are often elusive, focusing on matters of faith, dealing with dire circumstance and finding genuine connections. You Go Your Way is confident and compelling.
