In an extract from this article in the Daily Telegraph, pop music’s latest sensation Ed Sheeran talks about taking inspiration from Damien Rice.

He was taken to see Irish singer-songwriter Damien Rice play an intimate fan club gig at the age of 11, then bumped into the singer and his band in a bar after the show. “I had a little bit of a chat and kind of had an epiphany, like ’Wow, this is exactly what I want to do!’ I got home that night and wrote a whole bunch of songs. I remember one was called ’Typical Average Teen’. Yeah, I was one of those.”

You have probably heard this a million times already, but here is “The A Team” by Ed Sheeran.

Damien Collaborates with Melanie Laurent

Dublin’s Evening Herald reports that Damien has recorded 2 tracks with French actress Melanie Laurent.

The tracks will appear on Melanie’s forthcoming album, released on 5 May.

“It’s a crazy story. I went to Woodstock [over two years ago] to record the album and I was unhappy with what happened there,” she recalled.

“I called my manager and asked him to call Damien Rice’s manager and organise something. I didn’t expect him to come, but he did, and we started to work together. I fired everyone and followed him to Ireland.

“He taught me everything about being a musician. I was a huge, huge fan, so it was weird for me to just speak with him like it’s natural, when I was like, ‘Oh my God, I’m speaking with Damien Rice and we’re creating music together’.”
