Faye Webster

Get To Know:

The mellow folk-pop performer, Faye Webster, rose to prominence after her song “Better Distractions” landed on Barack Obama’s annual year-end playlist in 2020. The Atlanta native released her first album at age 16, Run & Tell. Her sound clearly pays homage to the twangy country of her youth. Webster’s discography takes on a relaxed and laid-back tempo: electric guitar, soft percussion, bass, keys, and pedal steel guitar melt into a sweet combination of jazz, country, and alternative genres. This unorthodox style combined with Webster’s twangy voice is what makes her music so nuanced and fresh. Since her debut in 2013, she has released three more studio records, the most recent being Car Therapy, an EP that reimagines songs from two of her previous albums with orchestral instrumentation.
