"Galway based, Lucas are Alan Gray (vocals/guitar); Howard Evans (guitar); Paddy Flynn (bass) and Ray Butler (drums). Formed in 2000 they soon recorded their debut single "Little Devil" with ex-Radiators man "Pete Holidai".

Things really began to happen for them in 2003 when they travelled to New York and started gigging in legendary venues 'Sin-E', 'Arlene's Grocery' and 'The Bitter End' amongst others. During this time playwright Jessamyn Fiore was putting together "The Mysterious World Of birds" featuring Lisa Hannigan (from Damien Rice's group) with Lucas performing the soundtrack.

Fiore approached Rob Fraboni to produce the soundtrack with Lisa Hannigan on backing vocals. Fraboni was so impressed with the music by Lucas that he offered to record an album with them later that summer."

Released: August 30 2005
Format: CD
Copyright: Vector Recordings

08. Don't Explain feat. Damien Rice and Lisa Hannigan
09. I Just Called To Say I Love You feat. Raul Midon (also feat. Stevie Wonder on harmonica)
10. Gelo No Montana feat. Trey Anastasio

Amazon.com: "Possibilities, by jazz piano/keyboard legend Herbie Hancock, with songs by Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, and Leon Russell, is a multigenerational masterpiece. Rock's "it boy" John Mayer leads off the CD with the spare, bouncy opener, "Stitched Up." Brit-born soul girl Joss Stone and bluesman Jonny Lang get down on the gutbucket "When Love Comes to Town." Christina Aguilera’s excellent vocals illuminate "A Song for You." Not to be outdone, Annie Lennox delivers an operatic take on Holly Cole’s "Hush, Hush, Hush," while Sting's "Sister Moon" swings with stealthy syncopations. Santana and the Beninese singer Angelique Kidjo provide the world flavor on "Safiotou," and the dreamy "Gelo No Montana," with ex-Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio, is the lone instrumental. Hancock’s tight solos and intelligent orchestral synths radiate all of the tracks. Like Frank Sinatra’s Duets and Ray Charles’s Genius Loves Company, Possibilities introduces Hancock to a new and awestruck generation." --Eugene Holley, Jr.

"Glen Hansard has teamed up with Czech singer and pianist Markéta Irglová to make his new solo album on plateau records. The album was recorded and mixed over a 6 day session in Prague in December 2005."

RMG: "Glen Hansard, front man with The Frames, has announced the release of a collaborative album with Czech singer and pianist Markéta Irglová. Accompanying the release he has also announced an Irish tour featuring Piano, Cello and Fiddle. After 18 months of constant touring with The Frames, Glen started 2006 by throwing himself into the making of a movie with original Frames bass player John Carney - appropriately enough Glen plays the part of a busker in the movie. Aside from the collaborative album and the movie, Glen will be writing and recording a new album with The Frames in 2006 which is pencilled in for release in September 2006. All of The Frames’ albums to date have achieved Double Platinum status. The band’s live album, Set List, has now gone four times Platinum!"
