About Glen Hansard
About Glen Hansard
Glen Hansard made a name for himself as founder of Irish group The Frames, and one half of the folk rock duo The Swell Season. But Hansard has also made a go of it solo, and things have worked out just fine.
In fact, it can almost be said that Hansard's album "Rhythm and Repose," has been 20 years in the making. It's his first true individual project, and has garnered praise from critics around the globe. Billboard called the album "Hansard at his most engaging," and The Wall Street Journal said the new songs "throb with a sense of searching and sadness that sinks in deep."
Of course Hansard was quick to get out in front of the album. To keep the ball rolling he performed on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "Late Show with David Letterman," and "Tavis Smiley," just to name a few. Stops at the late night staples helped, for sure, but Hansard also has other things going on.
Did you know that the highly acclaimed play "Once, The Musical" won eight Tony Awards including best direction of a musical, best lead actor in a musical and the top musical prize itself? "Once, The Musical" is based on the feature film "Once" with original songs written by Hansard including "Falling Slowly," for which he won an Academy Award.
It's true that Hansard is still considered the principal songwriter and vocalist for The Frames, but he's certainly come a long way all on his own. And only time will tell if he can achieve the same level of success. If you ask us, he's well on his way.
