Amy Correia delivers songs with a raw power that's both vulnerable and fierce. That musical honesty has drawn comparisons to Tom Waits and Michelle Shocked and The New York Times calls her "a singular talent." After two major releases on EMI, Amy Correia recently scored a creative and entrepreneurial victory by raising more than $35K to produce and release her third record, You Go Your Way.  An early convert to the "fan-funded album," Correia's new album "veers seamlessly from arena rock to gospel music, that includes both power chords and a string quartet." (NPR).  American Songwriter writes she's "back in top form with another rootsy gem of an albumCorreia shows off her Rod Stewart-meets-Lucinda Williams pipes on Powder Blue Trans Am."  A dynamic performer who accompanies herself on guitar, piano and baritone ukelele, Correia recently returned home from a  28-city tour of the U.S., opening for legendary frontwoman of The Pretenders, Chrissie Hynde. Hynde and her musical partner, JP Jones, hand-picked Correia to open for their new project after seeing Correia perform live.  (Her live show is not to be missed!) Correia has also toured extensively with Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Marc Cohn ("Walking in Memphis"), opening shows and performing as a member of his stellar band, appearing on Good Morning America, Ellen Degeneres, The View and The Today Show.

John Schaefer, WNYC (October, 2011)
"The English born singer-songwriter Jonathan Spottiswoode has been one of New York's more colorful band leaders for more than a decade"
World Cafe Live, David Dye
"Seeing what the band is LIVE just totally opened my eyes you're an incredible performer and there's something about the whole performance [an] almost theater aspect of the band that is really important."
Ithaca Times, Bill Chalsson (October, 2011)
"Spottiswoode and His Enemies were all that I hoped they'd be on Saturday night at the Chapter House. It was fascinating to watch Spottiswoode quietly methodically set up his equipment, gingerly set down his guitar case off stage, jovially greet one of the singers in Dowd's band, and then in the first moments of the first song in the set transform himself into a bitter, wild-eyed bellower threatening convincing revenge on a lover who refuses to submit to his dominance. Good stuff.
This is a crack band that does everything from cinematic rock and roll that would give the Afghan Whigs a run for their money to vaudeville tomfoolery that is stranger than the Kinks. The volume, level of menace, and complexity varies constantly through the set, held together by Spottiswoode's volatile persona, which seems labile enough to account for (and even make likely) the repeated, abrupt shifts in mood."
