Amy Fairchild is part of last year’s Big Red winner for Americana/Roots Act of the Year…but we aren’t here to talk about that (though you can go and nominate folks right now OVER HERE).
The Burren has been establishing itself as a place to really go and see live music. The back room is sectioned off enough from the sometimes rowdy front bar that you can real take in teh music, and feels almost like a special secret you can stumble upon. The food is belly rubbing good and the line up of music is damn well curated. As is the case with this Thursday evenings show with Amy Fairchild.
Fairchild is celebrating the release of an earlier 2017 record at this particular show.
“”Nobody’s Satellite” was released on Tuesday, April 25th, 2017. It comes on the heels of her well-received, critically acclaimed eponymous release in 2014, “Amy Fairchild“. It is produced by long-time writing/production partner Adam Steinberg, this being the third record they’ve made together (Mr. Heart (2002), Amy Fairchild (2014) and Nobody’s Satellite (2017). It features her live band of the last 5 years who will be appearing with her on Oct 19th; Steve Chaggaris (drums), Andy Santospago (electric guitars) and Jeff St. Pierre (bass) along with many special guests including Chris Trapper (of the Push Stars) on background vocals and Jon Graboff (The Cardinals, Norah Jones, Cindy Lauper) on pedal steel. Recorded, engineered and mixed by Boston’s own Dave Westner at Woolly Mammoth Sound (Waltham, MA) owned and operated by Dave Minehan (The Replacements, The Neighborhoods). The 11 song record features a variety of writing styles, perhaps her most diverse and introspective yet, from straight up alt-roots rock to more contemplative piano ballads.”
