DAMIEN RICE AND LISA HANNIGAN

They have now been separated almost as long as they had been together. But for seven years, Lisa Hannigan served not only as Damien Rice’s backing vocals but his sole muse. There’s a reason why Damien’s songs are beautifully bittersweet. Damien and Lisa had a passionate but tumultuous on-again, off-again relationship. He wrote songs about her and their relationship and they sang it onstage together. Damien was an intense songwriter but he apparently also had an equally intense temperament. Their last fight was backstage in the middle of their European tour. He fired her at the spur of the moment and she walked out of his dressing room and out of his life forever. It’s been nearly seven years. She still hasn’t spoken to him. And he never released another album since then.

"She’s had enough and so she drew a line, and she quit smoking and she quit me. And… I get it. You know, I get it and I don’t." – Damien Rice
