Faye Webster Signs to Secretly Canadian | Watch Video for New Single “Kingston”

Secretly Canadian is proud to present new signing Faye Webster and share the self-directed video for her new single “Kingston.” The 21-year-old songwriter’s forthright, exposed lyricism pays homage to the great Americana traditions of songwriting while drawing from Webster’s own experiences immersed in Atlanta’s hip-hop scene.
 
“Kingston,” the first new song since her 2017 sophomore self-titled LP, is quintessential Faye Webster.  Awash in the haze of a humid Georgia summer, all lovestruck and dewy, “Kingston” glimmers with a hushed glitz: a mellowed punctuation of brass, the twang of pedal-steel, feather-light vocals unfurling like a sigh, and slinking hues of R&B.
 
In the accompanying self-directed video for “Kingston,” we move through a blushing tangle of flamingos and lush palm trees, the sheen of red silk, a glimmering ice-rink. At the center of it all stands Faye Webster, in focus, gazing directly into the camera with a wide-eyed, unflinching gaze: the sharp, confident conductor in control of a dreamy haze.
 
A decorated photographer as well as a musician, Webster’s artistic mediums don’t intertwine, instead running parallel to one another. The throughline is her exceptional knack for direction, an assured confidence in her own point of view.
 
Faye Webster has announced US tour dates for the new year, supporting Lord Huron and Deerhunter respectively. These follow a series of intimate performances in the UK in January, all tour dates are below.
