There’s no stopping the Lisa Hannigan bandwagon at present.

The latest to fall for the Kilcloon, Co Meath singer are ATO Records, stadium rocker Dave Matthews’s label.

They have just added Hannigan to a roster which already includes David Gray, Radiohead and My Morning Jacket and will be releasing her debut solo album, Sea Sew, in the US on January 20th.

The album has already sold nearly 14,000 copies in Ireland since its release in September.

Hannigan is currently rounding off an extensive US tour supporting Jason Mraz (she’s in Milwaukee tonight in case any readers want to head along) before returning home for dates at Cork’s School of Music on December 12th and Dublin’s Vicar Street the following night.
