Damien's fanatical audience identify with a singer who has emerged from the working-class streets of Dublin's Northside with his powerful self-belief intact, and a storyteller's eye for detail in the writing and delivery of his songs. His concerts can be almost spiritual occasions – with fans singing along to every word. Described by The Times as ‘the Bob Marley of Ireland’ and by the Irish Examiner as ‘one of the most important and evocative singers of all time.’
Damien has released 5 original studio albums since his debut in 1997 which established him as an exciting new talent and attracted the attention of Sinéad O’Connor and the Hot House Flowers, among others. He has toured the world, playing his own headline shows and supporting legends such as Bob Dylan, Morrissey, Sinead O'Connor, The Pogues and Willie Nelson, and even U2 at their 2009 Croke Park show in Dublin on the first night of their 360 tour. In 2008 he recorded a set of traditional songs with the Dubliners for his album, The Rocky Road, and in September 2012 Damien will release his new studio album.
