The Swell Season

Formed by the Frames' frontman Glen Hansard and Czech songstress Markéta Irglová, the Swell Season (named after a novel by humanist Czech writer Josef Skvorecky) is a songwriting duo with a penchant for vocal harmonies and acoustic-based songcraft. The pop/rock twosome released a self-titled debut in 2006, several months before the appearance of the Frames' sixth effort, The Cost. Hansard and Irglová also appeared as working-class immigrants in the popular Irish movie Once, which was presented at the Sundance Film Festival in 2007. The following year, the duo received an Academy Award for Best Original Song for the film's hit single, "Falling Slowly," and the Swell Season's popularity surged as a result.

Once: Music from the Motion Picture went gold in February 2008, and an accompanying tour saw the group performing to sold-out crowds in multiple countries. Of course, part of the group's appeal was the real-life relationship of its co-founders, which lent a romantic chemistry to the Swell Season's stage show. Hansard and Irglová ultimately split up in January 2009, yet the band continued moving forward with a mature sophomore release, Strict Joy, which appeared later that year. ~ Andrew Leahey & MacKenzie Wilson, Rovi

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However, if you don't post this you will die in 2 Days. Now you've started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When you're f done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letter. This is so scary because it actually works

I'll second the Broadway show, ONCE, which is fabulous. When I saw it in NY, none of the people around me had heard of the film. Both have a lot of heart--as do Hansard and Irglova.

ONCE introduced me to Glen Hansard and I haven't been able to get enough of his music, The Frames and now Irglova and the Swell Season... just phenomenal and well-deserve d recognition after he sang on the streets of Dublin for 20+ years!

Their voices are hauntingly beautiful in this song and others I have heard from them. Truly amazing musical artists with great chemistry.

I'd recommend "Once" to those who have not seen it.

I have searched the world over for a sound similar in nature with realistic life story's as my own. Glen Hansard is wonderfully melodic with a seriously haunting style worth it's weight in musical history.
