Lisa Hannigan is best known for her work with Damien Rice, and indeed it was her breathy vocals that elevated songs like “Delicate” and “9 Songs” above normal singer-songwriter fare. But with this, her first album as a solo artist, Hannigan puts her time with Rice firmly behind her. This is an accomplished, affecting album, better than anything Rice ever recorded and wholly without the blandness that characterized his work from the first.

Entertainment Weekly
Their review was very positive

Sea Sew‘s cover art, depicting Lisa Hannigan’s handiwork, reflects the homespun intimacy of the Irish singer’s debut. She’s got a strong track record as a backing vocalist with Damien Rice, Herbie Hancock, and Snow Patrol, and her whispery, confiding voice makes this the perfect album for cozying up by the fire on a winter-chilled Sunday afternoon. Cello, violin, piano, and harmonium paint delicate pastel colors, but the arrangements rarely sound wimpy or morose.
