Faye Webster: "When I first got a guitar that really felt like it was a part of me, that's when I started to realize I was the player I wanted to be"

Faye Webster is often driven by her changing obsessions. The singer-songwriter has a reputation as a musician, a photographer (shooting for Killer Mike, among many others) and a yo-yo master. Over lockdown, it was games – anything from chess to consoles. When she gets into something, she’s fixated until she feels like she’s completed it. Music, however – with all its meandering, surprising and undefinable progression – seems to have been the constant. 

Raised on an early years diet of bluegrass and Western swing, Webster has since taken in a world of influences, from Atlantan hip-hop, R&B and soul, to indie and country. She recorded her self-titled debut aged 16, released the follow-up Atlanta Millionaires Club in 2019 and now is prepping for the arrival of her third record, I Know I’m Funny haha
