The New Americana: Halsey Talks Sex, Strength & Songwriting at SXSW

FUSE TV - The New Americana: Halsey Talks Sex, Strength & Songwriting at SXSW

For New York natives, Halsey is a stop on the L-train, an area of Bushwick, Brooklyn on the edge of Ridgewood, Queens. For pop music fans with a thirst for discovery, it's the latest singer you'd be a fool to ignore. Halsey, the moniker of 20-year-old Ashley Frangipane, has in a single year done more than most singer-songwriters could ever dream of: Signed to a major label, headlined a massive tour with the Kooks, secured a place in the hearts and minds of thousands of fans, all while emoting breathy, heady lines like, "I can't find you in the body sleeping next to me." She was also the most-mentioned artist at SXSW 2015, so, Lana Del Rey fans, take note.

We sat down with the up-and-coming musician at the Austin festival to learn more.
