Amy Correia returns to The Lizard Lounge after a fantastic show earlier this month. Accompanying Amy for her set will be the rhythm section of Billy Beard and Kimon Kirk, vocalists Jennifer Kimball and Rose Polenzani and Adam "Pickles" Moss on viola and violin. The amazing Dietrich Strause opens the show and Kimon along with Jamie Edwards (Amie Mann) and Lyle Brewer (Sarah Borges and The Broken Singles) close the show. An incredible night of music all the way through.
"An astute songwriter who avoids clichés..Ms. Correia is not just another quirky girl, the label often affixed to women who use their heads as aggressively as their hearts. She must face the fact that the music industry isn't very good at promoting women who are more like the cat that eats the canary than the fragile bird itself. This singular talent warrants a chance to disprove easy expectationsMs. Correia deserves to be embraced by a loyal audience." The New York Times (Ann Powers)
"Amy Correia doesn't pretty up her voice on "Lakeville". It's shaky and scratchy; it misses notes and sometimes catches or cracks. At first her songwriting can sound just as unpolished, with melodies that are reveries on old blues, folk or gospel. But like Michelle Shocked and Tom Waits, Ms. Correia turns imperfections into intimacies."
