The Divine Comedy

Neil Hannon is best known as the songwriter and driving force behind the band The Divine Comedy. Over twelve albums (and counting) his trademark orchestral pop, intelligent lyrics and legendary live shows have turned him into something of a national treasure.

Born and raised in Northern Ireland, Neil Hannon signed his first record deal aged 19. His first albums Liberation and Promenade were critically acclaimed, but it was 1996’s Casanova and lead single Something For The Weekend that brought widespread fame. Then in 1998 National Express became the band’s most beloved and highest charting single. Two decades later and the critically acclaimed album count is at twelve, with songs like Our Mutual Friend, A Lady Of A Certain Age and To The Rescue joining the pantheon of Hannon’s most renowned work. Last year the group’s longevity was confirmed when Charmed Life, The Best Of The Divine Comedy reached no.5 in the UK album chart.

Neil Hannon has written extensively outside of The Divine Comedy. His work for theatre includes a musical adaptation of Swallows and Amazons for the Bristol Old Vic which has since become a perennial favourite both in the UK and internationally. His classical pieces “To Our Fathers In Distress” and “As The Sun Brightens, The Shadows Deepen” were recently performed in Belfast by the Ulster Orchestra and recorded by the BBC for broadcast in 2024. He contributed songs and score to 2022’s found-footage sci fi film LOLA, and has written original songs for the forthcoming Warner Bros film Wonka, starring Timothée Chalamet.

Neil lives in County Kildare, Ireland with wife Cathy Davey and a large quantity of rescue animals. He is currently writing a new Divine Comedy album.
