Tell her your searchin' for her soul
Today, I present to you, none other than, my husband--Damien Rice. He's Irish, plays the guitar and piano, sings beautifully and has amazing lyrics. I almost want to just stop right there and simply request you seriously take the time to listen to him but that would be a cop out. So I'll ramble on some more!
He began his music career in the '90s in an indie band called Juniper. After having some problems with the label they were signed to, Rice decided to go solo. His first single was "The Blower's Daughter" (always a funny & odd track title), which I heard in the movie Closer. Ever since, he's been a popular choice for movies or television shows. He's even given special thanks during the credits to the Irish musical Once, which, incidentally, feels like your watching a movie based on a Damien Rice album.
