Prior to 2007, Glen Hansard had received numerous accolades as the singer/guitarist for The Frames—a Dublin-based indie-rock band that released six albums and opened for fellow Irish folk singer Damien Rice—but once audiences started flocking to movie theaters to see the Once, a musical about a street singer who falls in love with a flower seller, Glen’s profile received an immediate (and exponential) boost. Not only did Hansard star in the film, but he also sang and wrote most of the original songs on the movie’s soundtrack. (Much of the material was either provided by The Frames or Hansard’s side project, The Swell Season, which featured his co-star—and then girlfriend both on- and off-screen—Markéta Irglová.) In fact, the film’s musical centerpiece, “Falling Slowly,” won Hansard and Irglová an Academy Award in 2007 for Best Original Song.
No matter the medium, Hansard is just happy he gets the opportunity to do what he loves—play music. “I just sort of think you make songs and you play them,” Hansard told Interview Magazine following the release of his first solo album, 2012’s Rhythm And Repose. “There's no one that I prefer to sing with in the world than Markéta; she just gets it. And The Frames are just—you know, I'm in a rock band, and I love playing with them. And I've always loved playing solo. I guess in a way I just feel blessed to be able to make music. My favorite thing is usually whatever I'm doing right there and then.” Not only does Hansard continue to breathe new life into his music every time he performs, but the semi-recent stage adaptation of Once [hyperlink to our Once page] also allows audiences to relive the film’s musical magic on Broadway and in cities across the world.
