Halsey is the alias of New York-based pop singer Ashley Frangipane. The New Jersey native took her moniker from a New York L train subway stop, and her adopted city plays a large role in both the sound and lyrics of her dark, gritty electro-pop.
The musician’s big break came in 2014 when Frangipane uploaded the song Ghost” to her SoundCloud page. The track soon became popular online and caught the attention of a number of interested labels. The singer subsequently signed with Astralwerks who issued her debut EP Room 93” in October that year.

Halsey’s lyrics capture her feelings very well and sometimes show her being more vulnerable , especially on some of her newer songs like Without Me.” We wonder if her next album Manic will feature more songs with similar vulnerability. So far, the songs such as Clementine” do seem somewhat vulnerable, and fans will likely enjoy that.
Halsey is prepping for the release for her forthcoming third studio album Manic, due out Jan. 17, 2020. The U.S. pop singer’s two previous albums, Hopeless Fountain Kingdom (from 2017) and Badlands (2015) both peaked at No. 2 on the ARIA Albums Chart.

She also posted videos of herself performing covers of big hits on YouTube, famously her rendition of Taylor Swift’s ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’. She recorded her first original song ‘Ghost’ in 2014 and got herself a record deal with Astralwerks. Her debut EP ‘Room 93’ was released soon after and she embarked on a tour with indie band The Kooks. The following year she supported Imagine Dragons on their Smoke + Mirrors tour and recorded her debut full-length album ‘Badlands’. Her second album, ‘Hopeless Fountain Kingdom’, was released in 2017, with its lead single ‘Now Or Never’ reaching number eleven in the mainstream Billboard Charts.
This show was my 4th time seeing Halsey perform live in Minnesota, but there was something truly special about this go around specifically. Not only did Halsey herself KILL it, per usual, but the way the crowd responded to her was otherworldly. While I’ve seen Halsey in both big venues and small, this medium sized event was somehow the most massive AND most intimate thing ever. She’s a powerhouse through and through and genuinely cares about her fans.
The mania, she thinks, may suit her, even if it can make her more volatile, more prone to doing crazy shit.” She’d been manic the first time we met too, when I wrote about her in 2016. That day, the plan had been to meet in New York’s Central Park for a picnic,” though Halsey and I had gone straight for the Veuve Clicquot rosé. We were both in a precarious place, and we could somehow sense that in the other. Before long, we were talking about the miscarriages we’d recently had and weeping together in the midday sun. Later, the same Halsey who has been unremittingly open about her bipolar disorder, her -bisexuality, her relationships and her suicide attempt would tell other journalists that her miscarriage is the one detail she regrets sharing. And I was the one who shared it.
Despite her troubled past, Halsey has been able to rise to prominence by posting her music to social media platforms like YouTube and mainly Tumblr. Since then, Halsey has released a total of two-full length musical offerings in Badlands (2015) and Hopeless Fountain Kingdom (2017), both of which were reached commercial success.

An absolutely amazing experience. I feel so fortunate to have attended Halsey’s free concert. Not only is it amazing that the entire thing was free, but it was also an incredibly unique concert style that I have never seen repeated. The venue was fantastic, and Halsey herself was phenomenal. I wish I could replay this night over and over. Thank you to Halsey and the Armory for putting on an incredible, once-in-a-lifetime event.
Later in the evening, Halsey treated fans to the live debut of her own new single — but not before taking a trip down memory lane To open her set, she threw it way, way back to her 2015 Badlands single “Gasoline”; a welcome surprise for day-one fans. Radio smashes “Bad at Love” and “Without Me” also made her short but sweet setlist, as did the feminist rager ” Nightmare” And to cap it off, Halsey performed ” Graveyard ” — a new single from her forthcoming album, Manic — for the first time, giving the vulnerable breakup song a jolt of energy onstage.
