Amy Fairchild began her musical career in 1994, in Northampton, MA, with the release of her first record, She’s Not Herself, which quickly garnered high honors in such publications as Dirty Linen magazine. In 1997, Amy took off for New York, where she won the Lilith Fair Talent Competition in 1999, and in 2001, took a top Kerrville Folk Festival prize, putting her in the company of past winners Steve Earle, Lyle Lovett and Nanci Griffith. Fairchild truly came into her own when she teamed up with songwriter/producer/multi-instrumentalist Adam Steinberg and in 2002 released Mr. Heart. Songs from this record went on to receive high honors in multiple songwriting contests. Dave Marsh of Rolling Stone said, “If there still was a recording industry, this would come out on a major label and would be such a big hit you’d be sick of her by now. Not many people make records this good.” Now living in Boston, with 12 years between records, she has released her third album, the eponymous Amy Fairchild, once again produced by Steinberg, with guest appearances by guitarist Jim Weider (The Band) and pedal steel guitarist Jon Graboff (Ryan Adams & the Cardinals, Ron Sexsmith, Norah Jones). The record has gotten numerous rave reviews.
