Career[edit] It has been reported that Hansard quit school at age 13 to begin busking on local Dublin streets (despite the minimum school leaving age at the time being 15 years).[3] He formed his own band The Frames in 1990, and the group have been gigging regularly in Ireland since. Hansard came to international attention as guitar player Outspan Foster in the 1991 Alan Parker
Alan Parker
film The Commitments. He has often stated that he regretted taking the role, because he felt it distracted him from his music career. In 2003, he presented the television programme Other Voices: Songs from a Room, which showcased Irish music talent on RTÉ.[citation needed] On 22 April 2006, he released his first album without The Frames, The Swell Season, on Overcoat Recordings in collaboration with Czech singer and multi-instrumentalist Markéta Irglová, Marja Tuhkanen from Finland
Finland
on violin and viola, and Bertrand Galen from France on cello. Hansard also spent part of 2006 in front of the cameras for the music-infused Irish film Once, in which Hansard plays a Dublin busker, and Irglová an immigrant street vendor. The film had its United States premiere at the Sundance Film Festival
Sundance Film Festival
in 2007 and received the Festival's World Cinema Audience Award. During the promotional tour, he and Irglová began dating.[4] Said Hansard about his relationship with Irglova: "I had been falling in love with her for a long time, but I kept telling myself she's just a kid".[5] Hansard had recorded a version of Bob Dylan's "You Ain't Goin' Nowhere" for the film I'm Not There
I'm Not There
in 2007. In 2009, Hansard said that he and Irglova were no longer romantically linked, and that they are now "good friends".[6] Aside from his projects with The Frames
The Frames
and Irglová, Hansard also took part as a member of the band on the 2006 Oxfam
Oxfam
charity album, The Cake Sale. Hansard has recorded several cover songs, both alone and with band member Colm Mac Con Iomaire, for the Today FM discs Even Better than the Real Thing. Songs that he has recorded include Justin Timberlake's "Cry Me a River" on Even Better than the Real Thing Vol. 1 and Britney Spears' "Everytime" on Vol. 2.[citation needed] He voiced a role on an episode ("In the Name of the Grandfather") on The Simpsons
The Simpsons
as an Irish busker.[citation needed] A new album of original songs recorded as The Swell Season

at the Cape Cinema on 17 June.[9] In September 2011, he played at Pearl Jam's 20th Anniversary Festival PJ20 at the Alpine Valley Theatre outside of East Troy, Wisconsin. Hansard plays several guitars, including a very recognisable battered Takamine NP15 acoustic guitar (even sporting a large hole), which he calls "The Horse".[10] In a November 2011 interview[11] in The Huffington Post
The Huffington Post
with Irglova, it was revealed that Hansard was preparing a solo album and that there was a very possible third release from The Swell Season. This solo album was later revealed to be titled Rhythm and Repose.[12] American Songwriter included Hansard's "Love Don't Leave Me Waiting" on its The Muse July Sampler.[13] Another song of his featured in a film soundtrack is This Gift, which appears in The Odd Life of Timothy Green.[citation needed] Hansard sang the song "Take the Heartland" on the soundtrack for the 2012 film The Hunger Games. Another song he wrote, "Come Away to the Water", is featured on the soundtrack, but is covered by Maroon 5
Maroon 5
and Rozzi Crane. Hansard can be found singing "Come Away to the Water" on the deluxe edition of his first solo album Rhythm and Repose. He guest-starred in an episode of the TV series, Parenthood, playing himself. In the episode, "Trouble in Candyland", he performed "High Hope", a single from his solo debut Rhythm and Repose.[14] Influences[edit] Hansard has remarked about his musical influences: "In my house, when I was a kid, there was the holy trinity, which was Leonard Cohen, Van Morrison, and Bob Dylan
Bob Dylan
with Bob sitting center." [15] Hansard and The Frames toured as the support act for Bob Dylan
Bob Dylan
in Australia and New Zealand in August 2007 and Hansard often performs Van Morrison's songs in concert. Two such songs include "Into the Mystic", and "And the Healing Has Begun" which were included on the collector's edition of the soundtrack for the film Once. Hansard is a devotee of Krishna and performed for the 80th birthday of Swami Prabhupada
Swami Prabhupada
in London, staying at a manor donated to the Hare Krishna movement by The Beatles' George Harrison, who was a Hare Krishna devotee.[16] In July 2013, he sang with Bruce Springsteen

at Nowlan Park, Kilkenny, Ireland. In July 2015, he performed "Raglan Road" with Ed Sheeran
