Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mark ta Irglov (born February 28, 1988, in Vala sk Mezi, Czech Republic) is a Czech songwriter, musician, actress, and singer. As of 2010, she resides in New York City. Irglov began playing music at age 7, and began playing piano at the age of 8 when her parents bought her a piano and sent her to lessons. When she was 9, her father bought her a guitar and she immediately began playing and learning songs by ear. Her mother insisted Mark ta learnt piano because, as a child, her mother's family could never afford a piano even though she loved it so much. Irglov collaborates with Glen Hansard of the Irish rock band The Frames, whom she met when he was visiting Vala sk Mezi, and performs with him as The Swell Season. They released an eponymous album, The Swell Season (album), on Overcoat Recordings in 2006. In 2007, she co-starred with Hansard in the indie movie Once, written and directed by John Carney. Hansard and Irglov wrote all but one of the songs featured in the film. The movie won the World Cinema Audience Award for a dramatic film at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival.show more
