Dare biography

British AOR band fronted by Darren Wharton, formerly of Thin Lizzy. Their debut album in 1988 “Out of the silence” is considered a true classic from every AOR fan around the world. In 1991 they released “Blood from stone” a much heavier hard rock album which is also classic for its genre although it didn’t have a great success. After seven years of silence Dare changed their line up , Darren Wharton decided to start producing Dare’s albums in his own studio from this point on. In 1998 “Calm before the storm” was released with a new sound of unique classic rock with balanced electric and acoustic gutitars and a multilayered production . In 2001 their next album “ Belief ” was released with a major change in the band’s sound into more atmospheric classic rock along with celtic inlfluences . Dare established a really unique and trademark sound along with very emotional lyrics . In 2004 Dare released “Beneath the shining water” with a darkier and more sentimental laid back sound than “ Belief ” which was followed by a live DVD release “The Power of Nature” including a live performance in Munich.
