Amy is a multi-award winning songwriter living in Boston, MA. Right from the start of her musical career in Northampton, MA in 1996, this roots-pop beauty garnered high honors revealing a talented songwriter who deftly gets to the heart of the matter. She won the Lilith Fair Talent Competition in 1999 and took home a top Kerrville Folk Festival prize in 2001. She continued to bring home honors with the release of her 2002 record, "Mr. Heart" (produced by Adam Steinberg) including The John Lennon Songwriting Competition, Maxell Song of the Year and the Billboard World Song Competition. Dave Marsh said, If there still was a recording industry, this would come out on a major label and would be such a big hit youd be sick of her by now. Not many people make records this good. Amy shows no signs of taking her foot off the gas as she's just released her fourth record, "Nobody's Satellite" (April, 2017) again produced by Steinberg. Mike Greenblatt in The Aquarian Weekly says, "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."

The Grand Prize winner of The John Lennon Songwriting Contest and The CMT/NSAI Song Contest, he has garnered worldwide acclaim including the elite honor of performing for US and NATO troops stationed at Thule Air Base in Greenland, and an official endorsement by Stonebridge Guitars International.
"His ability to craft memorable songs is complimented by his supreme ability to deliver them in a sometimes funny, sometimes gut wrenching, but always sincere and authentic manner, praises Dave Dircks, host of the #1 Acoustic Podcast on iTunes, Live at Deepwells. At the core of it all, his personality sunny naivety meets gritty wisdom is what sets Jesse Terry apart Person by person, state by state, country by country, his fans, supporters, and colleagues have grown exponentially in the past few years, including at prominent festival gigs at Bonnaroo, Philadelphia Folk Fest, 30A Songwriters Festival and Falcon Ridge Folk Festival.
