Neil Hannon (born November 7, 1970) is a singer and songwriter, best known as the creator and lead member of the orchestral pop group The Divine Comedy. The band’s official website even goes so far as to say, “The Divine Comedy is Neil Hannon,” and Hannon is quoted in an interview as saying, “The Divine Comedy will always be my band because… I thought of it first!”

In 2005 he contributed vocals to his long-time collaborator Joby Talbot’s soundtrack for the movie version of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

Neil has also contributed to the soundtrack to Doctor Who, providing two tracks; both of them for (new) Series 2.

    been a fan for few years now and was nicely surprised when I heard Neil on Doctor Who :) I really wish to see him live sometimes but he doesn't play many concerts in Europe

    Life On Mars- it's so amazing, beautiful cover... Neil Hannon and Yann Tiersen- two people, who make fairytale music! <3

  • bad_wisdom This programme about Neil's career is going to be repeated on Wednesday on BBC 2 Northern Ireland. Sadly I'm not a UK resident (let alone NI), so I'm asking all the lovely Hannon fans out there - could you somehow share it with the rest of us after it airs? Much love!

    First heard him on the Hitchhiker soundtrack but didn't know it. Then I picked up the Dr. Who soundrack and *still* didn't realize it was the same person until I finally got around to putting both on my computer and sorted my library by artist.

    He played in Road Records in Dublin today! So good. He stood on the shop's counter and performed amazingly.
