went to war every morning

Lisa Hannigan is the gorgeous-voiced Irish woman who essentially made up half of Damien Rice's majesty, through her haunting collaborations all throughout the O album --on songs like "The Blower's Daughter" and the secret and devastating "Silent Night"-- and on the recent 9 Crimes.

Lisa's new album Sea Sew came out last week in Ireland, and this is a melancholy demo version of the first single "Lille."

Lille (demo) - Lisa Hannigan

Currently on tour in Ireland, she'll be hitting the States in October and November. Her MySpace page shows her coming through Denver on October 27. In related news, the Fillmore website seems to suggest it is possibly with Jason Mraz.

Thanks for this info. I have been fascinated by her voice since hearing her on Herbie Hancock's "Possibilities" CD and DVD.

Saw her at an outdoor gig in Dublin a couple of weeks back. Energetic, captivating and beautiful on stage. Her own new tracks are really strong... and wow, that voice!

She's awesome and the whole album is worth picking up - I'm listening to it over and over.

It's not just the Fillmore. She's opening support for most (if not all) of Jason Mraz's autumn tour.
