An acclaimed singer/songwriter who has played and recorded with bands Monroe  & Moving Hearts.  After the break up of Moving Hearts he concentrated on song-writing and released his first album “Still Not Cured”.  Three songs from this album became radio hits; Still Not Cured”, “The Silence” and “Sorry What I Said” .

Soon after Mick was back touring with his new band, Rusty Old Halo. Mick has written a number of songs which have featured on Mary Black’s album but the stand out one, which was to eventually launch his career in the US, “Past the Point of Rescue” which was released on Mary Black’s “No Frontiers” album of 1989.

Mick also recorded this on his “All I Remember Album” and it was subsequently picked up and recorded in Nashville by the American country artist Hal Ketchum in 1991.  Within a few short months it became one of the most played and requested songs on the 2,500 country music stations across the US.

Today, Mick Hanly has a new album on release “Warts and All”. His new material together with a comprehensive back catalogue ensure that Mick Hanly is recognised as one of the finest Irish Singer / Songwriters to emerge in recent years
