Not many indie folk heroes have won an Oscar or laid the groundwork for a successful stage musical, but Glen Hansard is an artist who can combine both. As a member of the Frames and the Swell Season, Hansard has been praised for his intelligent and passionate songwriting and nuanced vocals, and he has received similar accolades as a solo artist.

Hansard first gained an audience for his smooth but haunting indie rock as a member of The Frames before achieving international fame with fellow singer-songwriter Markéta Irglová in the duo The Swell Season, whose emotionally open, primarily acoustic indie folk became the centerpiece of the award-winning independent romantic drama "Once." Following his 2012 solo debut "Rhythm and Repose," Hansard has displayed stylistic diversity, embracing the sound of '70s singer / songwriters on "Didn't He Ramble" (2015), vintage soul on "Between Two Shores" (2018) and an eclectic swing between subtle folk and loud indie rock on "This Wild Willing" (2019).
