JUST UNDER 10 years ago Lisa Hannigan drifted into the public consciousness as the otherworldly backing vocalist in Damien Rice’s band and featured prominently on Rice’s chart-topping debut album O.
Over time though Lisa began to shimmy into the spotlight more and more and many earmarked her as potentially an accomplished artist in her own right.
Over the past year Lisa’s musical talents have shone through and she rounds off a busy 2009 with an extensive Irish tour which takes in a performance at The Live Lounge in The Radisson Blu Hotel on Tuesday December 8 at 8pm.
The year began with the release of Sea Sew in America through Dave Matthews’ ATO Records.
The Johnny Cash version of ‘Personal Jesus’ is one of my favourite songs and it’s kind of the only version I really know.
