Lisa Hannigan

Lisa Hannigan is the critically acclaimed Irish singer/songwriter who has just released her album, At SwimAt Swim achieved great success upon its release in August 2016 – it paved the way for a sold-out UK tour which has recently culminated in a sold-out headline show at London’s Roundhouse in January 2017.

At Swim was co-produced by Aaron Dessner of The National and reached number 1 in Ireland where it beat Frank Ocean to the top and became Lisa’s first top-40-charting album in the UK. At Swim began to materialise after Lisa started a new relationship and was dividing time between Dublin and London. Feeling adrift and lost, she threw herself into songwriting once more and after receiving an email from Dessner suggesting they work together, she rediscovered the collaborative spirit she’d missed. Whilst ‘At Swim’ is partly about isolation and homesickness, it’s also – profoundly and very movingly – about love. Arguably her most bewitching album yet, the record was awarded album of the week in the Sunday Times
