ARTIST: Dara Sisterhen

SONG: Sets Me Free

BIRTHDATE: September 27, 1996

HOMETOWN: Denver, North Carolina

CURRENT LOCATION: Nashville, TN / Los Angeles, CA

AMBITIONS: Make music, make art, make a difference. And be able to do so for the rest of my life.

TURN-OFFS: People who claim they’re “artists” purely for the search of fame. That’s really all I can think of.

TURN-ONS: Good rock n roll, a good song, chocolate, general intelligence.

DREAM GIG: A few actually. Royal Albert Hall, Coachella, Glastonbury, and MSG.

FAVORITE LYRIC: That’s really hard. Right now I’d say “Cross-legged on a barstool like nobody sits anymore” from Jason Isbell’s song ‘Elephant’.

CRAZIEST PERSON I KNOW: My brother, Bryce.

SONG I WISH I WROTE: There are literally so many. “Fluorescent Adolescent” of the marvelous Arctic Monkeys. But then, you know, there’s “Blowin’ In the Wind” by Bob Dylan.

5 PEOPLE I’D MOST LIKE TO HAVE DINNER WITH: Whether they’re alive or not; Johnny Cash, Paul McCartney, Elvis, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix.


I WROTE THIS SONG: After going home and experiencing, first hand, the inevitable change time takes on people.
