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 City 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-instrumentalist 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."

With 12 years between records, in 2014 released her third album, the eponymous, "Amy Fairchild" 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 got numerous rave reviews, Mike Greenblatt from Goldmine says, "If this stone cold roots-pop beauty doesn't catch on, it's everyone else's fault, not hers." She shows no signs of stopping having just released her fourth record, "Nobody's Satellite" (April 2017). Mike Greenblatt at The Aquarian Weekly says this, "When singer/songwriter Amy Fairchild released her impressive 2014 self-titled cd, it was so good that I fell in love with her immediately. Nobody's Satellite is even better. Twenty years in she's just reaching her near-brilliant stride."
