Northampton, MA, 1994, marks the beginning of Fairchild's musical career with the release of her first record, "She's Not Herself' which quickly garnered high honors from local papers and revealed Amy to be a talented songwriter who deftly gets to the heart of the matter. Dirty Linen Magazine said, "Fairchild touches with a subtle power"...and Seth Rogovoy of The Berkshire Eagle, "Fairchild combines the literate intimacy of a new-folk singer-songwriter, the unerring pop-rock instincts of a Sheryl Crow and the moves of a rock goddess."

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 Nancy Griffith. Fairchild truly came into her own when she teamed up with songwriter/producer/multi-instumentalist Adam Steinberg and in 2002 released, "Mr Heart." Songs from this record went on to receive high honors in multiple songwriting contests, including first place in several categories in The John Lennon Songwriting Contest, Maxell Song of the Year ("Falling Down") and Billboard World Song Competition. 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 Jim Weider on guitar (The Band) and Jon Graboff on pedal steel (The Cardinals, Ron Sexsmith, Norah Jones). The records has gotten numerous rave reviews and Mike Greenblatt from Goldmine says, If this stone cold roots-pop beauty doesn't catch on, it's everyone else's fault, not hers."
