Steafán Hanvey, originally hails from Downpatrick, Co. Down, in Northern Ireland. A child progeny of traditional musicians (his parents having recorded two albums during the seventies) his exposure to all kinds of music began in utero. Citing influences today from his formative years as being everything from Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Soundgarden, Simon & Garfunkel to Liam Clancy, Willie Nelson, Nina Simone and Leonard Cohen, perhaps the most important of all was the household itself, renowned at the time for its sessions and where it wasn't long before the young Steafán was called upon for a tune or two himself. In between sojourns from Ireland to the USA in search of a new audience, Steafán has spent the last 3 years recording his sophomore album entitled Nuclear Family, recorded in Paris, Helsinki, Dublin and mixed by Franz Ferdinand & The Cardigans producer, Tore Johansson, who has also worked with Martha Wainwright & New Order.
