Glen Hansard

  • The Sound of Glen Hansard: Glen grew up on what he described to the Sydney Morning Herald as “the holy trinity, which was Leonard Cohen, Van Morrison, and Bob Dylan, with Bob sitting center.” You can hear that influence throughout his catalog, which echoes the passion of Morrison’s Moondance, the intimacy of Cohen’s Songs from a Room, and the overall Dylanness of Dylan.
  • When You Discovered Glen: If you didn’t catch his breakout acting role as the guitarist in 2001’s The Commitments, then you probably fell for him pretty quick after seeing…
  • Once: In this 2007 romantic musical, which Glen starred in and scored, the former street busker was cast against type as a current street busker. The film earned gobs of acclaim—Glen won an Academy Award for the lilting centerpiece song, “Falling Slowly”—and became a Tony-winning hit musical.
  • The Frames and The Swell Season: The former is the Irish rock band that Glen plugs-in to lead. The latter is his folk-rock duo with Once co-star Markéta Irglová. 
  • Didn’t He Ramble: The title of Glen’s second solo album, which NPR praised for displaying Hansard’s “worn but wonderfully flexible voice, which sounds as kind and expressive as ever, with warmth to match the songs he sings.”

Richard Thompson

  • The Sound of Richard Thompson: Lace folk and blues with a virtuosic hybrid-picking guitar technique that’s showy without showing off, add lyrics with pitch-black wit, and swirl it with a hint of Scottish brogue that sounds at once lived-in and evicted.
  • The Prestige: Thompson has earned the Orville H. Gibson award for Best Acoustic Guitar Player, the Ivor Novello Award for songwriting, a Lifetime Achievement Award from BBC Radio for achieving life, and an appointment as an Officer of the Order of the British Empire for his service to music.
  • Must-Own Albums: 1974’s I Want to See the Bright Lights (his first album with then-wife Linda Thompson); 1982’s Shoot Out the Lights (the divorce album, ranked #33 on Rolling Stone’s list of 500 Greatest Albums of All Time)
  • Still: Richard’s latest album, which he recorded with Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy. Mojo says, “if this was a new act, people would be falling over themselves to sing its praises, but Thompson raised the bar so high so many years ago that this is simply what’s expected of him.”
