Epiphone artist and Columbia Records recording artist Shelly Fairchild will be featured on the tri-fold cover of the March 2005 issue of FHM with her Turquoise Epiphone Wildkat.

One of the newest artist on the Columbia roster, her voice conveys the blues of her Mississippi Delta home and the soulful power of a passionate woman who has been "singing with everything I've got" since she began performing as a child.

Her edgy style conveys the confidence of a small-town girl from Clinton, Mississippi, bold enough to head out on her own and earn lead roles in major musicals and national theatrical tours, yet sensitive enough to write heart-tugging stories about love and family as well as steamy tales about desire and living life to the hilt.

Her dynamic stage presence conveys the experience of a stage actress and the live-wire energy and hot-blooded emotion of a risk-taker who can open the throttle and roar or slow down to caress a lyric with intimate conviction.

All of this has brought Shelly a lot of attention lately and her distinct style even caught the attention of Harley Davidson. The recognized retailer has provided her with stage clothes and have invited her to perform at numerous bike rallies across the country, as well as their national convention. "I love motorcycles and recently learned how to ride a Harley," she says, "so of course I want to have the coolest clothes to ride in and they have them."

Shelly Fairchild is a force to be reckoned with - a fact made clear by her Columbia Records debut, Ride, a one-of-a-kind introduction that suggests this country singer won't be held back by pre-conceptions about Nashville or contemporary country music.
