Artist Biography

Faye Webster is an indie folk artist from Atlanta. She was raised in a musical family with her grandfather being a bluegrass guitarist in Texas and her mother being a guitarist and fiddle player. Faye started performing as a teenager and joined the rap collective PSA in high school. At the age of 16 in 2013, she released her debut album Run and Tell. Webster met rapper Ethereal during her senior year and was introduced to his label Awful Records. Faye enrolled at Belmont University in Nashville to study songwriting or graphic design but returned home to Atlanta before finishing her freshman year. She missed the creative scene and diversity that is found in Atlanta. Faye picked up photography and started shooting friends who were starting their own music careers. She shot various hip-hop artists including DRAM, Killer Mike, and her former classmate Lil Yachty. Faye wanted to prioritize her music, so she signed with Awful Records who released her self-titled second album in 2017. Two years later she released the album Atlanta Millionaires Club via Secretly Canadian. She toured on this album, making stops at both Austin City Limits and Bonnaroo. In 2021, Faye released her third album I Know I’m Funny haha which hit number ten on Billboard’s Folk Albums Chart. Her latest album is 2024’s Undressed at the Symphony with each track averaging at over a million plays on Spotify alone.
