Info zu Didn't He Ramble

Auf seinem zweiten Soloalbum wird der irische Singer/Songwriter persönlich. Der rotblonde Ire mit der charismatischen Stimme ist zurück: Glen Hansard veröffentlicht drei Jahre nach seinem Solodebüt das zweite Album unter seinem Namen. Dabei ist der Singer-Songwriter musikalisch ein Dinosaurier - seit 1990 mischt er mit seiner Band The Frames in der Musikszene Dublins mit und war zwischenzeitig im Folkrock-Duo The Swell Season aktiv. Bekannt wurde Hansard aber auch als Schauspieler in den Musikfilmen 'The Commitments' und 'Once', zu dem er auch den viel beachteten und preisgekrönten Soundtrack schrieb. 'Didn t He Ramble', produziert von Thomas Bartlett (The National, Sufjan Stevens) und David Odlum (Paloma Faith, Tinariwen) ist nicht nur ein persönliches, sondern auch ein sehr elegantes Album geworden - einen Anteil daran hat sicher die Mitarbeit von John Sheahan (Dubliners), Sam Beam (Iron And Wine) und Sam Amidon.

Glen Hansard
With a host of real-life songs and lilting vocals that reflect a passion for his influences (particularly Van Morrison, Leonard Cohen, and Bob Dylan), Glen Hansard is best known for his work with the Frames and the Swell Season. Born to a working-class Dublin family during the spring of 1970, he left school at age 13 in search of making music his career. He began busking in the streets of Dublin, laying the groundwork for his engaging stage persona and, ironically, mimicking the plot line of Once, the movie that would later make him a star in multiple countries. By his late teens, Hansard had recorded his first demo with the help of his Mum, who'd lent him some money for the project. One of the 50 tapes he pressed landed in the hands of Island Records' Denny Cordell, a former producer who'd previously helped bring Tom Petty and Joe Cocker to the Island roster. Upon a meeting at Cordell's flat, the 17-year-old Hansard also met Ron Wood, Marianne Faithfull, and Stewart Copeland. The meeting, to say the least, left a lasting impression on Hansard, and in the end, Cordell signed him with the approval of Island founder Chris Blackwell.

From there, Hansard quickly gathered a group of fellow buskers and formed the Frames. Unfortunately, quick accolades proved daunting for Hansard and the Frames, whose grunge-influenced release Another Love Song came and went without selling much. Island Records responded by dropping the group. To distract himself from the disappointment, Hansard took on the role of Outspan Foster, a guitarist in the famed Alan Parker film The Commitments. He would later admit that he shouldn't have taken the role, as it merely placated his struggle with making music. But a trip to New York gave Hansard the space and time to dream it all up again, and with a newfound focus, he wrote the guitar-blazing anthem "Revelate" and "Say It to Me Now." Both songs eventually landed on the Frames' proper debut album, Fitzcarraldo, which was released in 1996 and helped make the Frames a popular group in Ireland.

Over the next decade, Hansard and the Frames continued releasing albums while also becoming one of Ireland's finest live acts. In 2003, Hansard played host to Other Voices: Songs from a Room, a popular television show featuring Ireland's best in new music. Three years later, while the Frames readied the release of their sixth effort, The Cost, Hansard unveiled a new side project called the Swell Season. The acoustic-based group featured his collaborations with Czech songstress Markéta Irglová. He and Irglová also appeared as working-class immigrants in the Irish movie Once, which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in 2007 and won an Oscar later that year. Thanks to the movie's success (not to mention its popular soundtrack, Once: Music from the Motion Picture, which featured the band's music), the Swell Season became a popular act in Ireland and abroad, leading to the release of a mature sophomore album in 2009. 2012's Anti-released Rhythm and Repose, the solo debut from Hansard, was produced by Thomas Bartlett (the National, Antony & the Johnsons) and inspired by the singer/songwriter's year-and-a-half spent as a denizen of New York City. Later in 2012 Hansard's track "Take the Heartland" appeared on the Hunger Games soundtrack, and the following year he recorded a cover of Bruce Springsteen's "Drive All Night" with Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, which was included on an Anti-issued EP of same name in November in aid of music education charity Little Kids Rock.
