Not many heroes of indie folk have won an Oscar or created the basis of a successful stage musical, but Glen Hansard is an artist who can wear both of those feathers in his cap.

As a member of the Frames and the Swell Season, Hansard won acclaim for his literate, intelligent, and passionate songwriting and his nuanced vocals, and hes gone on to win similar accolades as a solo artist. Hansard first gained an audience for the limber but emphatic indie rock he created as a member of The Frames, then gained international fame with fellow singer and songwriter Marketa Irglova int he duo The Swell Season, whose emotionally open, primarily acoustic indie folk became the centerpiece of the award-winning independent romantic drama Once. After going out on his own with his 2012 solo debut, Rhythm and Repose, Hansard has shown a stylistic diversity as he embraced the sound of 70s singer/songwriters on 2015s Didnt He Ramble, vintage soul on 2018s Between Two Shores, and an eclectic swing between subtle folk and noisy indie rock on 2019s This Wild Willing.

Glen Hansard now presents All That Was East Is West Of Me Now, his first solo album in 5 years. The album demonstrates the Oscar-winning singer-songwriters unique ability to blend Irish folk with modern rock & the punch of his storied live shows, of which The Guardian says ,"Hansards powerful voice, whether raw with passion or tender with regret, shines above arrangements bursting with swagger".
