You may recognise her distinctive vocals from Damien Rice’s classic anthems, but Lisa Hannigan is a uniquely talented singer and songwriter who today sings solo.
A beautiful Irish talent with a delectable character and the cutest button nose, 29-year-old Lisa Hannigan makes devastatingly heart-felt music. Penning poetic verses about everyday life and romantic encounters, her music is highly evocative. Performing on what she describes as “broken-down, wheezy old instruments”, daintily moving around the stage, Lisa’s live performances are mesmerising and her attention to creative detail outstanding. Produced by US legend Joe Henry, Lisa recorded her second studio album Passenger, in just one week and created the D-I-Y album cover, which features maps of Brooklyn, Dublin and West Cork, herself. Currently filming videos for a selection of self-penned tracks, she is a true artist who prefers to retain total control over every aspect of her presentation. i-D online took a magical boat journey with the brunette beauty for a sing-song in the sunshine.
