Lisa Hannigan


Mercury and Choice Prize-nominated Irish singer-songwriter Lisa Hannigan first came to light as a somewhat mysterious figure singing harmonies alongside Damien Rice. She contributed significantly to Rice’s platinum-selling debut O and critically lauded follow up 9.

She has since been stretching her musical expertise in many directions, releasing three studio albums (including a #1 in Ireland), featuring in the Oscar-winning film score for Gravity, collaborating with the likes of The National, Glen Hansard and Herbie Hancock, and performing live across the world.

Lisa Hannigan’s last record was Live in Dublin made with experimental orchestral collective s t a r g a z e in Dublin’s National Concert Hall, and was released in May 2019. This live record followed Hannigan’s critically acclaimed third full-length studio album, At Swim produced by Aaron Dessner.
 
Hannigan's delicate vocals and soft-plucked guitars and mandolin are delivered against a hypnotic backdrop of sublime waltzing keys, affective string sections and minimalist percussion.
