Damien Rice left his band, fled to Italy, wrote ‘O’!
Originally, Rice was a member of Juniper, but on the evening of recording their first full album Rice changed his mind and left the band.
To start over Rice moved to Italy where he wrote songs and busked his way around Europe.
Back in Ireland Rice got in touch with David Arnold, together they recorded O in 2002, this launched Damien Rice to the world. This album had Cannonball on it.
Since the release of O, Damien Rice has toured the world and shared stages with legends and peers.
