Quick Overview

Jim Fairchild (born Kirby James Fairchild October 8, 1973 in Fresno, California) is an American guitarist and singer-songwriter. He records under the name All Smiles.


All Smiles is Jim Fairchild (Grandaddy, Modest Mouse). Oh For The Getting and Not Letting Go, his triumphant follow-up to 2007's critically-acclaimed Ten Readings of a Warning full-length (''the most appealing slice of self-effacing poppery since Richard Lloyd first took Tom Verlaine's place at the mic.''), is thick with bright, smart chord progressions that undercut with damning lyrics, all sung with gently assertive aplomb. . Both his new full-length and simultaneously-created new EP, Fall Never Fell (release date TBA), were recorded in Omaha, Nebraska and Los Angeles, California by co-producers Solon Bixler (Great Northern) and Nik Freitas (Mystic Valley Band). Both Freitas and Bixler lent their multi-instrumental talents to the record, along with drummer/percussionist Joe Plummer (Modest Mouse). Fairchild began creating Oh For The Getting and Not Letting Go shortly after years of being on the road surrounded by friends and fun and constant movement.
