    SHELLY FAIRCHILD

    As one of Rolling Stone Country’s Top 10 Artists You Need to Know, Shelly has had a big year.  She released her record Buffalo which charted on the iTunes Country Albums chart and was featured on the iTunes New Country Albums page for 8 weeks.  Her first single off of the record, Mississippi Turnpike, is being played nationally on the radio and has been spotlighted on numerous playlists on Spotify.  The music video for the single was premiered with Taste of Country and debuted on CMT.  Just last week she was the female headliner at the Grand Ole Opry.  With the release and success of the record so far, she is coming back home to celebrate the record with her hometown.  She is super excited and wants to invite everyone!

    Shelly Fairchild isn’t new to the industry – but she’s far from old news. And of her latest release Buffalo she wants everyone to know: “This is the most honest record I’ve ever made.” So it is. A staple in the Nashville music community, Fairchild hit the scene to much acclaim in 2005 with her debut album Ride. The project introduced the young artist’s soulful, gospel-tinged brand of alternative country and spawned a Top 40 hit with “You Don’t Lie Here Anymore.” She toured with some of the biggest names in the format, including Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban and Tim McGraw, and began to dig her roots in the industry. She again found success in her second release, Ruby’s Money, which came steeped in a thick groove with elements of funk – but it’s Buffalo that marks a milestone in her life and career.

    “I’m sincerely grateful for both the good and bad things that have happened in my life. Everyone that I’ve met and worked with over the 20 years that I’ve lived in Nashville has made me who I am, and I will always carry that in my soul,” says Fairchild. The Jackson, Miss. native started the project in May 2014, launching a PledgeMusic campaign in the hopes that she would find support of her endeavor – and after reaching her goal in just two days, she realized she had. Though fully funded and buoyed by the faith of her friends, family and fans, Fairchild found herself at a creative standstill.
    “When I first started this process I met with a lot of publishers in town,” she recalls. “I was in such a writer’s block that I thought I’d just cut outside songs. I took meetings and heard so many great songs – and honestly, I went in my first session and cut several of the songs that had been pitched to me. But at the end of that recording day I just thought, ‘That doesn’t feel like me.’” The next two years saw Fairchild working through the impasse with some of her most inspirational industry co-writers. “House on Fire,” an aching ballad reflecting on the weight of one’s past, was the first song that she remembers finishing and feeling confident that it deserved a spot on her record. Co-written by Fairchild along with Lisa Carver and Travis Meadows, the track features subtle but classic country instrumentation and the soft harmonies of the Fairground Saints.
    From there the singer/songwriter continued to pen songs that she felt carried an important message to either herself or the world around her. Initially concerned that the results wouldn’t be cohesive on an album, her co-producers Jeremy Lister and Carey Ott encouraged her to see how they fit together. Guided by Lister and Ott, Fairchild eventually decided to cut eight of her co-written tracks for the record. One of the most sincere is her gospel-infused call for change, “Why Can’t We Carry Each Other?” “My co-writer Kevin Scott Rhoads and I discussed the state of the heart and how people’s souls are wrapped up in such negative things so often – and what’s the point of that?” she asks earnestly. “Because we’re all just trying to get to the next place. And whether  or not you believe in heaven or anything, we’re trying to get to a better place. And if we’re all trying to get there, why can’t we just help each other?”
    The duo teamed up once again to write “Unholy Spirit,” a piano-backed lamentation of a relationship marred by addiction. A subject not often addressed in country music, she wanted to express “what it is like to worship something that is completely killing you.” Though she tackled some serious topics in her writing, Fairchild also felt uplifted by her own work and that of others. One of the most standout tracks on Buffalo, the blues-ridden up-tempo tune “Mississippi Turnpike,” came in the wake of a breakup. Her co-producer Carey Ott sent Fairchild the song, written by himself and Tim Lee Jones, as she was driving home to her family and she knew immediately that was just the song she needed. Upon recording the song with Ott, Fairchild heard that it was missing one key element: Lucie Silvas.
    “I love singers,” she smiles. “I love great singers. I love to have camaraderie and deep friendships with great singers and musicians. I feel like our community here is so rich and some of my favorite voices are my friends. I was able to reach out to artists like Lucie and Wendy Moten and ask if they cared to sing on my project.” Not only does the record emphasize its diversity by featuring guest vocalists, but it also highlights a wide array of musical styles and influences. “There are a lot of different elements to the music,” agrees Fairchild. “How do you describe some of the best bands that you know? They ended up on pop radio or on country radio, but are they really that kind of act? I like having a lot of differences and having them come out. It feels like that kind of music lasts longer, because it feels real.” With such diversity in vocalists, genres of music, subject matter and even writers, it’s little wonder that the seasoned artist was worried about the cohesiveness of the project. It was the overarching theme of the buffalo however, that brought them all together. “I feel like the last five or so years, I’ve kind of been trudging through a lot of muddy water,” she admits.
    “The journey has felt so murky and muddy that I thought I might just want to call the album that – Muddy Water – but it seemed too cliché. So my manager and I were researching what might  exist around that idea, and that’s when we found Buffalo.” In many Native American cultures, the buffalo symbolizes gratitude and abundance. Fairchild, who has Choctaw ancestry, connected with the idea that though buffalo carry a lot on their shoulders, their horns are always pointing up to the sky. “There’s always this hope that the weight will be lifted,” she says. “I felt like, as we were reading about it, it seemed so crazy that we would call it Buffalo. It had nothing to do with any of the songs – but it had so much to do with where I had landed at that point in my life.” A longtime hidden gem in the trove of Nashville musicians, Fairchild continues to keep her head and her heart pointing up to the sky. Between singing background vocals for the likes of Jason Aldean and Martina McBride, touring across the country and continuously working on future projects, it is clear she is just getting started. “At times I’ve gotten down about my own path, but when I look at it – it’s not full of detours or dead ends,” she said. “It’s a wide path, and it’s full of a lot of amazing things.”

    MSO ANNOUNCES VIBRANT COLLABORATIONS FOR AN EXCITING OPENING NIGHT OF THE SELBY & RICHARD McRAE FOUNDATION BRAVO SERIES ON OCTOBER 7th — VOICING JOPLIN!

    We are thrilled to be partnering with MS Humanities Council for one-of-a-kind pre-concert event

    On Saturday, October 7th at 7:30pm, the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra is pleased to present the first concert of its Selby and Richard McRae Foundation Bravo Series, Voicing Joplinsponsored by Regions Bank and significant guest artist support comes from the Robert M. Hearin Support Foundation, in addition to the Greater Jackson Arts Council.  Scott Joplin’s opera “Treemonisha” will be amazingly brought to life in a concert production which touts 11 national and regional soloists, Jackson State University, Tougaloo College and Mississippi College choirs, Ballet Mississippi dancers and 88+ musicians with full MSO orchestra.  With its themes of education, women as leaders and civil rights, it is a timely presentation during our state’s Bicentennial.

    The libretto (of course, written by Joplin) portrays a young slave woman who is educated during her youth, and subsequently rallies her community against superstition and ignorance.  Although she faces much hostility for this, she is ultimately successful in helping them to understand the importance of education, which is the key to obtaining success and they soon choose her to lead them along this path.   The musical language of “Treemonisha” represents styles of music, some of which were “born” in the state of MS — often called the birthplace of America’s music – serves as an ideal platform to experience a period piece that depicts a time no longer embraced, yet a message that is timeless.  In this way, MSO’s contribution to our state’s Bicentennial celebrations will be an incredible offering that looks ahead through the lens of our shared history.

    We are beyond pleased to also announce the partnership with the Mississippi Humanities Council for a pre-concert event with noted author and leader, Ibram X. Kendi, recipient of the 2016 National Book Award (non-fiction) for his book, Stamped From The Beginning.  This Cora Norman lecture is FREE and open to the public.  It will take place before the Bravo I concert at the Russell C. Davis Planetarium in downtown Jackson on Saturday, October 7th from 6:00-7:15pm.

    Significant educational interface is happening with MSO’s guest artists and local schools.  This is an official bicentennial project made possible by a grant from the Mississippi Humanities Council, through support from the Mississippi Development Authority.  These below events are open to the public:

      + Oct. 3rd & 5th, 5:30-6:30pm–MS Arts Center:  Dr. Susan Glisson leads cultural mapping exercises for combined choirs

      + Oct. 5th, 2:00pm–JSU Choral Activities Room:  Soloist Hope Briggs holds a career conversation

      + Oct. 5th, 1:30pm—Woodworth Chapel, Tougaloo College:  Soloist Christin-Marie Hill leads masterclass for students

      + Oct. 6th, 2:00pm—JPS Power APAC:  Soloist Robert Mack holds a career conversation with students

    The MSO Bravo Series presents five concerts per year, all at Thalia Mara Hall.  Tickets for Bravo I:  Voicing Joplin are $25 & up for adults and $5 for children/students, when accompanied by a paying adult.  Advance tickets may be purchased online at www.msorchestra.com or by calling (601) 960-1565, or by visiting the MSO office at 201 East Pascagoula Street in downtown Jackson between 9am and 5pm, Monday thru Friday.  Tickets will also be available at the Thalia Mara Hall box office starting at 6:30pm on the evening of the concert.  Park once and attend the pre-concert lecture and Bravo I!   For additional information on Kendi visit http://www.ibramxkendi.com/aboutibramxkendi/  For more information on this concert and others in the MSO 2017-18 Season of Celebrations, or to purchase tickets, visit our website or see us on Facebook.com/JacksonMSOrchestra.

    CLINTON — Through a partnership with the Barksdale Reading Institute, Clinton Park Elementary is beginning an outreach program for parents of pre-kindergarten age children.

    “We are holding a series of six workshops for parents and guardians of pre-school children who will be entering kindergarten in the fall of 2018,” said Clinton Park Principal Kelli Pope. “They will cover what children need to know and do to be ready for kindergarten, in literacy, math, and general development.”

    Pope said the workshops will include simple, daily things that parents can do with their children to help them prepare for kindergarten and to be in a classroom setting.

    A similar program was piloted last year in the Quitman and Kosciusko school districts with good outcomes. Pope applied for a Barksdale grant over the summer, and Clinton was one of 11 school districts that received the grant. The funds cover the cost of materials and door prizes for the parent academy.

    Workshops will all be held at Clinton Park Elementary School and are free to attend. Childcare will also be provided for children ages 3-10. Snacks will be served.

    “All participants will be entered to win a door prize at each session,” Pope said.

    Participants who come to all six sessions of the Parent Academy will be eligible to receive a graduation gift in April.

    For more information or to register, call Clinton Park at 601-924-5205 or register online here: https://goo.gl/forms/Bi5uS0345XK7ispu1.

     

    Parent Academy meetings will be held from 5:30-7 p.m. at Clinton Park on the following dates:

    –       Oct. 24

    –       Nov. 28

    –       Jan. 25
