Born 7 December 1973, Damien Rice is an Irish singer-songwriter who hails from Dublin, Ireland. He produces indie and folk music under his label Heffa.

Rice’s musical career has its roots in the band Juniper, which he formed with friends out of Salesian College in Celbridge, County Kildare, Ireland. He was active in the band from the period 1991-1998 and recorded six albums with the group under the label Polygram. Rice went on a hiatus after the group broke up and backpacked and farmed his way through Europe. Coming home to Ireand, Rice decided to pursue music independently.

Rice recorded a demo and with the help of a cousin in London he set up a mobile studio. His debut full-length album entitled “O” was released in Ireland and the UK in 2002 and in Europe and the U.S. the following year. It peaked at No. 9 in the UK and remained on the charts for more than 90 weeks. Rice’s music received further exposure through film and television. The song “9 crimes” was featured on the animated film “Shrek” and “The Blower’s Daughter” was used on the soundtrack for the film “Closer.” The single “Delicate” appeared on the T.V. show “Lost.”

Damien Rice is known to utilize his talents through charitable contributions. As a philanthropist he has recorded songs to support the Dalai Lama in the album “Songs for Tibet: The Art of Peace,” as well as for “Help!: A Day In the Life” which aids war-torn countries like Bosnia and Herzegovina. Both as recording artist and a performer, Damien Rice continues to engage audiences with his honest and emotional songwriting.
