Glen Hansard

I saw a film many moons ago called, ONCE. It was cool, had a guitar in it and didn’t think much else about it.

I stumbled across a Bowie cover the other day (video below) and was blown away by the guy singing. I did some looking into his music and discovered he was Glen Hansard and starred in ONCE.

I have now spent too many hours listening to his albums over and over again but I have to say his live performances are much better. He comes from a busking background and this really comes across at gigs, his vocals are crazy good and I love he still uses a knackered old guitar!!

Check him out, if you haven’t already! I have a feeling I am very late to the party!
