About The Swell Season

The Swell Season are Glen Hansard (from the The Frames) and Marketa Irglova (classically trained Czech pianist and vocalist). Since their rise to prominence after starring in the 2007 film Once, they increasingly referred to themselves as "The Swell Season" in promotion of their performances until it became the formal name of their collaboration in 2008. From 2007 through 2010, a documentary film was made about Irglova and Hansard called The Swell Season. The movie premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in June 2011 to positive reviews.
