Editorial Reviews
Δ   Didn’t He Ramble, the second solo outing from acclaimed singer songwriter Glen Hansard, will be released September 18 via Anti– Records. The new album is his first in over three years and follows 2012’s solo debut Rhythm & Repose, which Billboard hailed as “Hansard at his most engaging.” Didn’t He Ramble was produced by Thomas Bartlett (The National, Sufjan Stevens), a frequent collaborator of Hansard’s, and Grammy winner and former Frames band–mate David Odlum (Paloma Faith, Tinariwen). The album, which was recorded in New York, Dublin, Chicago and France, is Hansard’s most intimate and elegant record since his work in Once and features guest appearances by John Sheahan (Dubliners), Sam Beam (Iron and Wine) and Sam Amidon. Glen Hansard is the celebrated principal songwriter and vocalist/guitarist for the influential Irish group The Frames. Whether busking the streets of Dublin, where he got his start, or headlining a gig, Hansard has garnered a reputation as an unparalleled frontman. Hansard is also one half of the acclaimed duo The Swell Season. In 2007, he and Czech songstress Markéta Irglová took home the Academy Award for Best Original Song for “Falling Slowly” off the Once soundtrack. In 2013,the Broadway adaptation, Once The Musical, won eight Tony Awards including the top musical prize. Most recently, Hansard has won critical acclaim for his moving interpretations of the songs of Jason Molina of Songs:Ohia.
REVIEW
BY JONATHAN BERNSTEIN September 14, 2015;  SCORE: ***
Δ   Irish troubadour stretches out toward soul and blues
Δ   Glen Hansard has been a steadily prolific singer–songwriter for 25 years, first with the Dublin indie–rock act the Frames and later as half of Oscar–winning folk duo the Swell Season. On his second solo effort, Hansard explores fresh sounds, from plain–spoken blues ("Wedding Ring") to traditional–minded Irish ballads ("McCormack's Wall"). The highlight: "Her Mercy," a soul showstopper that starts small and builds toward a parade of horns and cathartic pleading. Yet as the LP progresses, Hansard too often lapses into his trademark brooding melodrama — an easy fallback for a singer who's at his best, nowadays, when he's trying something new.

REVIEW
STEPHEN THOMPSON, SEPTEMBER 09, 201511:03 PM ET
Δ   Irish singer–songwriter Glen Hansard has proven incredibly versatile throughout a career spanning more than 25 years. In The Frames, he's mixed vein–bulging intensity, string–laden elegance and a rock star's flair for rafter–shaking anthems. In The Swell Season, he's indulged his romantic side, pairing with Czech singer Marketa Irglova for songs that swooned and ached with an undercurrent of hard–won optimism. (The pair even won an Oscar for "Falling Slowly" from Once, the 2007 movie in which they starred together.) Finally, as a solo artist, Hansard has recorded two albums of stately, alternately hopeful and heartsick ballads.
Δ   Hansard's second solo record, Didn't He Ramble, gives his pensive side a workout, as the tone–setting opener "Grace Beneath The Pines" makes clear from the outset. But a spirit of keep–your–chin–up perseverance sets in quickly, giving the album the lived–in, heartfelt quality that's become Hansard's calling card in recent years. "Winning Streak" best embodies this side of the singer, who fills the song with enough infectious goodwill to fill a graduation party. Many music–industry veterans get more craggy and bitter with age, but he's only become more generous and forgiving in his career's third decade.
Δ   As always, Hansard surrounds himself with a crack team of like–minded collaborators, from Iron And Wine's Sam Beam to Sam Amidon to album co–producer Thomas Bartlett (a.k.a. Doveman), for a sound that retains its subtle, graceful elegance no matter how many horns and strings work their way into the mix. But the central ingredient remains Hansard's worn but wonderfully flexible voice, which sounds as kind and expressive as ever, with warmth to match the songs he sings. Δ http://www.npr.org/

While the journey to finishing the record was a long one, the reward of finally arriving at the end line was well worth it. Hansard explains, “I feel I’ve really dug deep for these songs, and I’ve been chasing specific ideas asking myself ‘what is it I’m trying to say with this line or idea?’ One would hope that through all of this that you find your voice. And, amazingly, you might find it in the smallest gesture of a song.”
