AboutIrish singer/songwriter Damien Rice spent his childhood fishing and daydreaming in the countryside of Celbridge, County Kildare.
Painting and writing songs inspired him as a young man, motivating Rice to put a band together. The heavy, indie-rock sounds of Juniper were signed to Polygram in 1997 and "The World Is Dead" and "Weathermen" did moderately well on Irish radio.
When it came time to recording a full-length album, contractual rules from the label prevented Juniper from doing so, so Rice split. He headed for the hills of Tuscany in 1999 and lived his life as a wanderer around Europe.
Rice returned to Dublin within a year to focus on music once again, scrounging up enough money to record a demo.

Rice sent it to producer/film composer David Arnold (Bjork, Nina Persson, Paul Oakenfold), and lucky for him, Arnold loved it. Arnold set Rice up in his very own mobile studio to make a record. His first single, "The Blower's Daughter', was an instant top 20 hit when it appeared in fall 2001. Shared gigs with McAlmont & Butler and folkie Kathryn Williams followed in summer 2002 when Rice released O in the UK.

"The Blowers Daughter" cited by many as the album's standout track, was given a new lease of life when put on the soundtrack of Jude Law-starring movie Closer. Following the sucess of singles such as 'Cannonball' and 'Volcano', Damien retired to the studio to record his second album. The first single, Unplayed Piano, about the democracy struggles in Burma, was released before the album. Other songs set to show on the ablum include the defiant 'Rootless Tree'.
