Biography: College wasn’t really the thing for 19-year-old singer songwriter Faye Webster. After attending Nashville’s Belmont University for a semester, the Atlanta-native decided to pursue a music career back home.

But it’s Webster’s affinity for hip-hop that makes her country sound contemporary and unique. She’s covered Outkast and has totally transformed “Cheap Thrills” by Father -- Awful Records’ founder and rapper -- into an emotional ode to indie-folk. The singer’s friendship with rapper/producer Ethereal and the Awful crew, as well as her innovative sound, has earned her an official spot on the independent label’s roster.

Webster’s genre-defying music isn’t her only creative crossover — she’s gained recognition in Atlanta’s hip-hop scene for her Kehinde Wiley-esque photography of rappers like Lil Yachty, Migos’ Offset, and D.R.A.M. Inspired by a photography class she took at Belmont — “It’s mainly the only reason I’m glad I went,” she explains — Webster channels her quirky personal style and love of monochromes into her portraiture.
