Jason Molina . Songs:Ohia Tribute EP

// January 27th, 2015 // No Comments » // News

On March 17, Glen Hansard will release ‘It Was Triumph We Once Proposed…Songs of Jason Molina,’ an EP of material in tribute to his friend and colleague Jason Molina. Jason Molina is the revered singer-songwriter behind the project Songs:Ohia, who passed away two years ago this March.

All profits will be donated to a charity in Molina’s honor.


Stream “Being In Love” via Soundcloud.

Of ‘It Was Triumph We Once Proposed…Songs of Jason Molina,’ Hansard explains, “Jason Molina was a hero and a friend, I wrote him my first fan letter, I always loved his music and singing these songs is the only way to make sense of losing him.”

The EP also features their friends, the musicians Jeff Panall, Jennie Benford and Dan and Rob Sullivan. These four had known Molina since his days at Oberlin and had toured and performed with him on such key recordings as ‘Didn’t It Rain’ and ‘Magnolia Electric Co.’ Rob Bochnik joined this core group for the recording session with Glen.
