“Webster explores themes of different relationships through her broody tunes, tackling the notion of writing only sad songs by writing her “saddest song” yet.

In a way, the record feels like a comingof- age for the singer-songwriter into her own perfectly curated moment, which surely will lead to bigger and better things.” (NYLON) “Faye Webster is filled with lush bluegrass sounds, featuring plenty of slide guitar and the occasional trill of a fiddle, which Webster’s fragile voice flits through like that of a younger Natalie Prass.” (W Magazine) “…a soulful offering heavily inspired by the country and western music she grew up listening to.” (Pitchfork) “Her self-titled record will win fans across the musical spectrum for its left-of-center approach to folk. Webster is a lifelong student of country-western songwriting and Americana sound (her mom plays fiddle; her grandfather is a bluegrass guitarist). But she punctuates her own tunes with subtle flourishes of funk. 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.” (VICE) #8 album of 2017 (Gorilla vs. Bear)
