Support Act Announced For PIAS Nites

Aug, 2016

We're delighted to welcome Lisa Hannigan on board

We're proud to announce that Lisa is opening for us at the SOLD OUT PIAS Nites show.

Lisa's third album At Swim will be released worldwide on 19th August and can be pre-ordered now from her website. Produced by Aaron Dessner (The National), it follows 2011's Choice-nominated album Passenger.

"A joyous kaleidoscope of love songs, laments, sea shanties and glockenspiels"
Debut album Sea Sew.

Lisa was a member of Damien Rice's band for seven years and released her debut solo album Sea Sew in 2008. Described as "A joyous kaleidoscope of love songs, laments, sea shanties and glockenspiels", the self-released album was a runaway success. The album was nominated for a Choice award in Ireland and a Mercury Music Prize in the UK.

The 2011 follow up Passenger explored deeper, darker emotions. Centred around the pain of leaving and the sense of 'apartness' consequent to a life spent in constant motion.

" If Sea Sew bobs beautifully on the surface, you could say that Passenger explores the undercurrents of passion and heartache beneath the waves."

Since then, Lisa has provided the voice for Selkie the mermaid in the Oscar-nominated Irish animation Song of the Sea and contributed a haunting cover of 'Danny Boy' to the TV series Fargo, as well as vocals for Steve Price's scores for Gravity (which won an Oscar) and Fury.
