Details of Damien Rice and the Ticket Luck value
Damien Rice is an Irish folk singer, famous for his two albums O and 9.He was born in Dublin, Ireland and was raised in Celbridge, County Kildare, Ireland.
Rice was originally in the band Juniper. In 1999, while recording their first full album for Polygram, Rice quit. He basked around Europe until he was able to form a band. Exploiting a lucky connection to David Arnold, Rice was able to record O, for which he won the Shortlist Music Prize in 2003.
Rice recently decided that his professional relationship with Lisa Hannigan, who performed vocals and occasionally the guitar and bass, has run its creative course. As a result, Hannigan will not be appearing at any of his upcoming live shows. She is embarking on her own artistic endeavors. Rice recorded an old Juniper track, Crosseyed Bear, for the new War Child album. He spent 2004 and 2005 recording the follow-up to O. On November 3, his latest album, 9, was released in Ireland, 2006, on November 6, 2006 in Europe and the rest of the world, except for North America, where it was released on November 14, 2006.
Rice's songs have been featured several times on popular films and television shows. The Blower's Daughter and Cold Water featured prominently in the 2004 film Closer. Cold Water was also featured in the 2003 film I am David, the HBO film The Girl in the Caf?, and on the NBC dramas ER and The Black Donnellys. Cannonball also featured in The Black Donnellys and the 2004 film In Good Company.
Delicate was featured on the ABC dramas Alias, Lost, and the Fox drama House. Older Chests was featured on the NBC drama Crossing Jordan and in CBS science-fiction drama Jericho. His song 9 Crimes was featured during the episode From a Whisper to a Scream on the ABC medical drama Grey's Anatomy. Grey Room was featured on One Tree Hill, in an episode of Criminal Minds, and on an episode of House. Most recently, The Blower's Daughter could be heard in the Fox criminal drama Bones and segments of his single 9 Crimes were featured in the major motion picture Shrek the Third.
In recent years Rice has stopped mid-song to ask the audience members to simply watch the concert rather than record it. At a gig in Toronto in 2006, he changed the lyrics of his song, I Remember from I remember it well, taxied out of a storm, to watch you perform, and my ships were sailing to I remember it well, when we used to watch concerts, not through a camera, please turn, them off please.
In October 2006, Rice recorded a live session at Abbey Road Studios for Live From Abbey Road. His performance was screened in an episode alongside those of Jamiroquai and the Goo Goo Dolls.
