Glen Hansard IE
Star of the film “Once” and praised by Spielberg himself, the founder of The Frames Glen Hansard weaves his Northern folk like a man strokes his beard.
Praised unanimously by many of his peers who have sought to collaborate with him, including Bruce Springsteen, Damien Rice and Eddie Vedder, Glen Hansard is one of the best Irish singer-songwriters of his generation. Strongly influenced by Van Morrison, Dylan and Cohen, he has the divine power to hurl you into a torrent of emotions when his voice and guitar come together. A multi-faceted artist, equally at home on stage as on screen, he was thrown into the TV spotlight in 2007 when he played a messed-up street musician in the film “Once”, winning a Cesar for Best Original Song for “Falling Slowly”.
