Not many heroes of indie folk have won an Oscar or created the basis of a successful stage musical, but Glen Hansard is an artist who can wear both of those feathers in his cap. As a member of the Frames and the Swell Season, Hansard won acclaim for his literate, intelligent, and passionate songwriting and his nuanced vocals, and heís gone on to win similar accolades as a solo artist. Hansard first gained an audience for the limber but emphatic indie rock he created as a member of the Frames, then gained international fame with fellow singer and songwriter Markťta IrglovŠ in the duo the Swell Season, whose emotionally open, primarily acoustic indie folk became the centerpiece of the award-winning independent romantic drama Once. After going out on his own with his 2012 solo debut, Rhythm and Repose, Hansard has shown a stylistic diversity as he embraced the sound of Ď70s singer/songwriters on 2015ís Didnít He Ramble, vintage soul on 2018ís Between Two Shores, and an eclectic swing between subtle folk and noisy indie rock on 2019ís This Wild Willing.

Glen Hansard now presents All That Was East Is West Of Me Now, his first solo album in 5 years. The album demonstrates the Oscar-win-ning singer-songwriterís unique ability to blend Irish folk with modern rock & the punch of his storied live shows, of which The Guardian says, ďHansardís powerful voice, whether raw with passion or tender with regret, shines above arrangements bursting with swagger.Ē
