Faye Webster is quite an established 19-year-old. She’s a folk singer with deep Americana roots (her mom played guitar and fiddle, and her grandfather is a bluegrass artist), and she’s also a noted photographer. Her portraits of fellow Atlanta artists like Lil Yachty and D.R.A.M. are vivid yet understated: Her subjects stare straight at the camera in a sea of bold primary colors and patterns, the distinction between the background and her subjects purposefully blurred.

In the video, Webster reclines with an actual snake around her neck, awkwardly dances ’80’s aerobics style before a red backdrop, and rides the streets of Atlanta in a patterned two piece. “I won that on Ebay,” she says excitedly. Webster’s eclectic fashion sense comes from her second-hand habit. “I travel a lot and when I’m just driving road trips, I stop every time I see a Goodwill,” she explains. “I wear a lot of my mom’s clothes, too.” . Her voice hits a sweet spot somewhere between bluegrass powerhouse Alison Krauss, Natalie Prass, and Tennis’s Alaina Moore, whose light vocals glide across any melody.

When it comes to her future with Awful Records, Webster is excited for artistic growth. “There’s so many artists and I feel like everyone influences each other,” she says. “I think I’ve finally settled into a good spot, but I’m down to try anything.” Watch the official music video for “She Won’t Go Away” by Faye Webster.

“Remember When,” a highlight off her eponymous Awful Records debut, translates her photography’s bright and focused visual principles into sound. The instrumentation is lush, with flourishes of strings and languid guitar filling the silence between Webster’s plainspoken verses. She sounds nostalgic and slightly weary, waxing poetic about lost moments with a potential lover (“I remember every song you wrote me/And how it touched my heart”), ambling over unhurried guitar strums and muffled drums. It’s a photorealistic rumination on a relationship.
