Twenty-five years into a remarkable and interesting career, Glen Hansard has much wisdom to share on his second solo album, Didn't He Ramble. The new songs poetically tell stories of friends, challenges, love, and ultimately hope.

A songwriting craftsman, Hansard worked for a long time creating these compositions, determined to get them "right." On Didn't He Ramble, you also hear the influence of classic artists like Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, and Leonard Cohen on Hansard's work.

In our FUV Live session, this gifted Irish musician and raconteur even shares a wonderful story about meeting Cohen himself.
