Faye Webster is set to release Atlanta Millionaires Club on May 24th via the fine folks at Secretly Canadian. That label seems like a good home for her; cause like the label, it’s tough to stick a genre on her. Here’s some info from the PR team.

The lead single, “Room Temperature,” communicates this clearly, acting as a breezy recollection of Webster’s day-to-day life. The song simmers with a rattling bass line and the fleeting twang of pedal steel as Webster vocalizes her own inversion, trying to be at peace with being alone. “Pedal steel has always been one of my favorite instruments and I generously sprinkle it throughout the record, but in ‘Room Temperature’ it is unarguably prominent. It is the first thing you hear in the song and I wanted the visual to mirror the feeling of hearing this Hawaiian/bendy/Spongebob guitar, and what better way to capture it all than Miami?” The self-directed video shows Webster herself in different settings; on a synchronized swim team, dancing on the shoreline with backup dancers, and playing guitar on the beach.

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.
