The unique Irish singer-songwriter Lisa Hannigan, the former mysterious angelic voice accompanying Damien Rice, is finally coming to Slovenia!
Though he had collected a number of demos over the years since 9, it wasn’t until Rice enlisted the assistance of producer Rick Rubin in early 2013 that his recording efforts really started to creatively coalesce.
Laying down tracks in Malibu and finishing in Reykjavik, Iceland, “Rick helped me to put away the self-critical whip,” Rice says. I had spent years beating myself up, and Rick has a masterful skill at pulling you out of you.” The resulting eight tracks of My Favourite Faded Fantasy comprise a beautifully orchestrated, vulnerable work, swelling with lamentation and resignation, and the feeling that experience, no matter how emotionally brutal, contributes to our own betterment.
Rice, her former boyfriend, sacked her in 2007 with the brusque announcement: “After much thought and discussion Damien has decided that his professional relationship with Lisa Hannigan has run its creative course.” In 2014, when he released his first Hannigan-free album, he said: “I don’t think the two of us will work together again but there’s no reason why we couldn’t play live together again some time.” When we chat today Hannigan, who has never been less than diplomatic about the relationship, speaks positively about her time in Rice’s band.
She dropped out of a French and art history degree at Trinity College, Dublin, to join him on the road. I was an international woman of mystery, and it was great! I got to sing and learn about that but I had none of the stressful bits. I just didn’t really talk.” Nowadays she’s a warm, interested conversationalist, conspiratorial as we decide whether it’s late enough in the afternoon for an alcoholic drink (it is) and settling on a glass of red wine when it turns out that there’s no Guinness in the pub.
They played together for seven years, but it wasn’t until the release of her solo debut in 2008 that the full spectrum of her abilities became apparent.
A joyous kaleidoscope of love songs, laments, sea shanties and glockenspiels, with a cover hand-stitched by Lisa herself, the self-released album was a runaway success, nominated for a Choice award in Ireland and a Mercury Music Prize in the UK.
The Liveurope platform brings together and supports European concert venues in their commitment to promote up-and-coming European acts, and actively boosts their touring across European stages and their introduction to new audiences.Describing the person inside the record as “a student with a lot to unlearn” Rice says his return has been reinvigorating.Not wanting to wait another eight years, he is happy to have his appetite back after such a long fast, and he already has plans to return to the studio as soon as he’s able.“Writing songs and playing music has a great way of keeping you in check, at least to me,” Rice says. Moving forward with enthusiasm is far more interesting to me rather than dwelling on the past.
“I get reminded, over and over, that I am not in charge. The more I follow the flow, the bigger the surprise of the outcome.” For Rice, My Favourite Faded Fantasy accomplishes many things, perhaps most important among them the chance to let go, to simply keep his eyes on what’s ahead. “My body gave me signs that I should slow down, but by the time I listened it was too late and I got sick.” Given Rice’s prolonged absence from music, a shock to the system was in many ways inevitable.
