Strings to Singing

Singer Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, who you may know by her stage name Halsey, has been writing songs since she was 17-years-old. As a kid she used to play classical string instruments: the viola, violin and cell! She finally picked up her instrument of choice at 14 - a guitar!

Paying Rent to Recording

When Halsey hit 18 she ran into some financial trouble - the truth was, she was hard-up to pay her rent! She decided music would be a good way to make ends meet and started performing under the name "Halsey" which is both her first name as an anagram, and a street she hung out on in Brooklyn. Her plan was to go to art school one day, but instead she landed a record deal! By 2015 she had released her debut album Badlands.
