New Jersey-born Halsey, aka Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, grew up with hopes of earning a fine arts degree before lack of funds led her to enroll in a songwriting program at a local community college. The detour quickly became her focus as she discovered her knack for crafting deeply personal songs . After several years of gigging around the country and sharing demos with labels, she signed with Astralwerks in 2014 and released her debut EP Room 93. The record was a hit with critics, leading to a tour with The Kooks, an appearance on Last Call with Carson Daly, and a buzzed-about performance at SXSW in Austin.
Rising indie pop ingenue Halsey was one of the most buzzed-about performers at SXSW 2015, and it's easy to see why as she commands the stage at her mesmerizing live shows. In concert Halsey delivers her lush vocals with clarity and precision, captivating audiences with a combination of classic elegance and punk edge that makes her dynamic songs all the more powerful. Whether her voice is soaring above the sizzling synths and skittering electronic beats of "Hurricane" or propelling the syncopated rhythms of "Ghost", Halsey always wows ticket buyers with her cutting-edge style, sonically adventurous arrangements, and confident stage presence.
