Dare Blackburn Oliver grew up in Swansboro, NC. She has performed in countless choirs for churches and schools, but her greatest musical joy was singing with her family in their band, Strung Together. They have toured all over NC making memories and music together. The Oliver family, along with several friends and even Dare’s mother, have recorded five CDs worth of music to remember this special time forever. Those albums are all on Spotify and iTunes.
Now that most of the baby birds have flown the nest, it’s time to move on…as The Bonafides! Dare also sings in New Bern’s only all-female a cappella group, The Silver Lining Singers.
She also has a few professional endeavors. She is the Director of Marketing and Coordinator of Fine Arts at The Epiphany School of Global Studies.
