If you are a sucker for depressing love songs, we have 2 words for you: Damien Rice.

Yep! Fresh off his popular showcase at the inaugural Neon Lights festival just a few months back, the 42-year-old indie singer-songwriter from Ireland is set to return to Singapore once again for a full concert later this year.

Known for his popular sentimental ballads such as “The Blower’s Daughter” and “Cannonball”, Rice was previously a member of a 90s rock group Juniper. According to Luke James from Music Weekly, Rice quit the band “to work as a farmer in Tuscany, Italy and busked throughout Europe before returning to Ireland in 2001 to begin his solo musical career”.

Since his debut album “O” (2002), Rice has churned out 2 additional studio albums – “9” (2006) and “My Favourite Faded Fantasy” (2014).

Well-loved for his “mastery of storytelling through his heart-rending lyricism and unforgettable voice”, we suggest those who are still nursing a broken heart to bring an extra packet of tissues for the gig. No one is going to judge you if you shed a tear or two.
