Tommy Dare was born to parents who were both Lutheran ministers. He spent much of his childhood on stage, performing gospel music with his parents and five siblings. While working on his degree in business, he was a member of a rock and blues band in the 80s.

After years of working in business management where life could get very stressful, he attended a stage hypnosis performance by his sister, the famous Sami Dare, and the rest is history. Tommy began to study hypnosis and its effects on the human psyche — not to mention it was a great was to reduce stress. He enjoyed stage hypnosis and developed a show that he has been performing for the past 10 years.
