Faye Webster signs to Secretly Canadian; releases video for Kingston

by Woody on November 20, 2018

21 year-old Faye Webster is the latest addition to the venerable Secretly Canadian roster. Hell if I do a decent job describing. Kind of folky. Kind of twangy. Kind of R&B. It’s damn good, that much I can tell you. Type of music I would throw on to see I could get my wife in the mood. Only to be told that Andy Cohen was hosting a Housewives reunion. Anywho, here’s some more info from the PR team.

“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.
