Between Two Shores, which follows 2015’s GRAMMY nominated Didn’t He Ramble and 2012’s solo debut Rhythm and Repose, is a ten-track collection produced for the first time by Hansard himself. The result of more than six years of writing and recording, Between Two Shores came together in only a matter of weeks.

After booking time at Black Box Studios in France last Spring with the original idea of taking inventory of his songbook, Hansard trove through his previous sessions, various ideas and home recordings. A sketch of an unplanned record quickly took shape, featuring material captured in New York and Chicago with a revolving cast of musicians, including Brian Blade, Thomas Bartlett, Brad Albetta and Rob Moose along with touring band members Joseph Doyle, Rob Bochnik, Graham Hopkins, Justin Carroll, Michael Buckley, Ronan Dooney and Curtis Fowlkes. 
 
Between Two Shores captures that feeling of the big soulful sound of Hansard’s large touring band, while still retaining the intimate introspective nature of his acoustic shows.
