Does anyone have any info on Damien Rice?

I would like to know a little more about him. I have his cd O but I can't seem to find anything much on him.

He went to school with my mate in Kildare, he says he got on like a prick in school. I have O, its not bad but he sold out canonball by have the record company releasing a more radio friendly version. If you want the real deal with music like this check out "for the birds" by The Frames.

Damien Rice is all about his live shows. The record is good but the show is mindblowing. I've seen him twice, once with The Frames opening so had a nice side-by-side comparison. Completely different kinds of performances. You can't even compare them, really. The Frames are more like a rowdy bar band with some sensitive moments and great musicians and funny stories. Great, great fun, love them. Rice is dark, intense, arty, can be funny sometimes but generally it's a serious affair where he really gets inside the characters' head, a bit like Jeff Buckley meets Thom Yorke. It was one of the most extraordinary performances I've ever seen, and nothing like his record. If you ever get the chance, go see him!

I would like to see him in concert but It does not seem he does a lot of shows. I will keep my eyes and ears open.

Seriously. How long can someone promote the same album? He's been playing the same songs since at least 2000, there are ads for "O" on TV ALL THE TIME and in every shop, and it's been out for almost THREE years. I would write an album for him, at this point, just so I could stop hearing about "O" all the time.

I have to admit, I change the channel when something from O comes on. Our local station plays him all the time. I love him but I'm pretty sick of that record.

Yet another case of over-exposure in other parts of the world while he's pretty much unknown here. (well as far as I can tell)

Actually I kinda agree with Megan. I haven't touched 'O' in quite some time because I played it over and over in 2003 and while the songs remain magnificent, I've heard enough of them to be wanting more. I do still want that b-sides disc though because I haven't quite heard all of them yet.

I can't wait to hear the duet with him and Tori. And yeah I am tried of O being promoted. I want some new material. His live shows are amazing and prefer to listen to his live stuff more than his studio recording.

Either way he is my favorite singer/songwriter. And I look forward to seeing him perform again.

I LOVE Damien Rice, it´s a shame I can´t find his record anywhere here in South America.

Oh, and his song with Tori Amos. It´s HAUNTING. I thought it would be silly because of the title but it´s not... it´s very dark. Gives me chills.
