About Damien Rice
Damien Rice may have grown up on the streets of Delbridge, Co. Kildare, but it took leaving that area and later coming back home to find a new freshness and approach to his music. It was March 1999 when Rice moved to Tuscany, then traveled all around Europe. But he arrived back in the Dublin area a year later, deciding to cut some new songs. He recorded a demo that was sent to producer and film composer David Arnold, who reportedly gave Rice the money to buy his own mobile studio.
Rice's first single, "The Blower's Daughter," became a Top 20 hit in the fall of 2001. He then released his solo debut album, "O," in the U.K in 2002, and it hit stores in the U.S. a year later, earning him a dedicated group of American fans.
Rice released a collection of B-sides as a stopgap between albums in 2005, and in 2006 came his sophomore record, "9." The album featured his long-term collaborator and then-girlfriend Lisa Hannigan, but on the supporting tour they made headlines when they eventually split for good.
After supporting Leonard Cohen in Dublin in 2008, Rice was rarely heard from for the next six years. He contributed the song "Lonely Soldier" to the Enough Project in 2010, was featured on singer Melanie Laurent's album in 2011, and appeared at the South Korea Seoul Jazz Fest in 2013. But in 2014 he announced a small show at the 25th Anniversary celebrations of Whelan's, a venue in the Irish capital. He then released his third studio album," My Favourite Faded Fantasy," in November.
