Quick Hit with Sarah Saltos

“Kingston” by Faye Webster
Secretly Canadian
Atlanta native and alternative artist Faye Webster began her career when she was just 16 years old. She initially released music through Awful Records label, yet after moving to Secretly Canadian, her songs have taken on a more individual and mature tone.

Sometimes falling in love is not as complicated as it seems. Newfound love can feel simple and right. In “Kingston” by Faye Webster, the experience of a quaint and quiet love is detailed throughout the lyrics. 

Throughout the song, Webster explores the vulnerability one can feel when falling in love with someone. The song embodies the mood of a cozy summer in Georgia where the artist has found herself hopelessly in love with someone new.

Webster paints a dreamy, warm picture through her lyrics. Her vulnerability shines through with the lines, “I think that tonight I’ll leave my light on / ‘Cause I get lonely when it’s out and I miss you right about now.” 

In the song’s chorus, Webster repeats the phrase, “Baby tell me what you want to know  / Baby Give you everything I have and more.” These lines encompass the feeling of being entirely devoted to someone and wanting to give them your all.

“Kingston” is the sixth song on Webster’s album, “Atlanta Millionaires Club.” The song plays along with the pattern of geographical places in the album which Webster has emotional ties to. Released in 2019, “Atlanta Millionaires Club” was Webster’s second album. The album mixes country influences with the R&B genre and even includes a rap feature, emphasizing the uniqueness of Webster’s music.

Webster’s music exudes a dreamy, calm aura which is evident through her gentle melodies all throughout the album. The release of “Kingston” allowed for the artist to increase her audience and is considered her most popular song.

“Kingston” is available on all streaming platforms.
