The HYPE Magazine: “Who Is Halston Dare?!” By Jerry Doby
Who Is Halston Dare?!
Burgeoning pop singer-songwriter Halston Dare is debuting her latest single, “Replace You” today April 24th via streaming services worldwide. Taking influence from top artists such as Halsey, Dua Lipa, Ariana Grande, Julia Michaels, and Lennon Stella,Darejoins the alt-pop movement, blending pop melodies, powerful lyrics and a sexy club beat. The songstress uses her hypnotic voice to guide listeners through those days when you need to be reminded you’re a badass and that no one can make you feel like you don’t deserve the best, both in life and in relationships.
The Hype Magazine got Halston Dare to weigh in on a few things including her take on the new project from which the single was lifted, and she also provided us with a dope riddle to close out the conversation…
From the outside looking in, who is Halston Dare?
The girl that can do it all! I am a singer-songwriter, Christian, basketball/football loving, fashionista and makeup queen, and eco-friendly activist. I am also a friend to my fans, I love them with my whole heart.
What brought you to the entertainment industry, music specifically?
My dad influenced the musical aspect in my life. He grew up singing and touring with a barbershop group named the Acoustics. Growing up, my dad and I would listen to all types of music from the 60’s to the 90’s singing together and I will cherish those memories forever.
What do you want people to get from your music?
When people hear my music, I want them to feel GOOD! Also, my main goal is for the listener to feel like they can relate to the stories I am telling. Everyone has different and specific details to the stories that make them who they are today, but I do my very best to write about things I’ve experienced that others hopefully can love and relate to.
Tell us about your current project and what it means for you!
This new project I am doing is crazy, incredible, and exciting. Releasing my new single Replace You is going to be iconic, and I can’t wait for everyone to hear. Also, a lot don’t know this yet, but I will be doing a music video after the release of Replace You. Everyone can expect new music, music videos, Tiktok and Instagram content and touring dates to come in the future.
For new listeners, what song of yours would you pick as an introduction to you as an artist?
Is that so wrong?
Whenever I was little
Those 3 songs perfectly describe me as a person, my writing style, and portray my favorite melodies I’ve created.
Tell us a bit about your work and passions OUTSIDE of music…
I’m a very chill, introverted, laid-back girl. I wake up, make my coffee with my sweet cinnamon creamer, a banana, write a song and do social media content everyday! Other than that, I am hanging out with my friends or boyfriend watching tv, swimming or grabbing something to eat. I can absolutely say life is good right now.
Last but not least, HYPE wants to know…What’s your CRAZIEST “Where they do that at?!” aka WTF?! moment…
My favorite wtf moment was when I heard this riddle:
“You have fingertips, but you don’t finger tip. You can tip-toe, but you don’t have toe tips.”
