Momentum continues for Missouri-born Halle Kearns, as the video for her last single Happy In This Bar makes its debut on CMT. Riding the wave of success, Halle now prepares to release her new single: Are You Okay? in February.
Backed by a gently strummed guitar, Kearns’ sweet, silken voice pushes forth a message close to her heart. “This song reflects the value I place on checking in on your people,” Kearns explains. “It’s becoming increasingly more common in today’s world to make it look like you have it all together, even when things aren’t great.” It’s sung with a deep ache you can feel in your chest – this song and message are both important to Kearns, and it shows. The single continues in the vein we’ve come to expect of late: introspective and deeply personal, a tone set late last year with the release of Nothing Left. That single was the first from the sophomore EP, due later this year. It’s in stark contrast to the upbeat, happy-go-lucky vibes of Kearns’ first collection, and it shows incredible growth and maturity from this young – but experienced – artist.
Coinciding with the release, Kearns is partnering with multiple brands and organisations that further convey her message. Stronger apparel and Happy Little Mother jewelry are among them, with a portion of proceeds from Happy Little Mother being donated to CASA – a non-profit benefiting children in foster care.
ARE YOU OKAY? is available to download and stream on all major platforms from 8th February. Pre-save it here. Follow Halle on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter or visit her website. You can also shop for Halle Kearns x Happy Little Mother jewelry here.
