Swell Season singer-songwriter explains duo's relationship

Band's tale is a rags-to-riches story

Hansard and Irglová now sit among a very minute population of Oscar-winning independent artists, as Hansard himself pointed out in his acceptance speech after winning Best Original Song at the Academy Awards, proclaiming, "Make art, make art!" The duo has proven that even amid all of the trials of musicianship, relationships, and critics, you truly can go from playing a guitar in the streets of Dublin to standing in front of thousands of people confessing your appreciation.
