Damien Dempsey’s debut album in 2000, They Don’t Teach This Shit in School, set him apart as a unique and important voice, championed from an early stage in his career by Sinéad O’Connor. The follow-up, Seize the Day, marked the beginning of his relationship with producer John Reynolds, picking up many awards and leading to extensive international tours. Commercial and critical success continued with the release of the No. 1 album, Shots (2005), backed by Brian Eno, and To Hell or Barbados (2007), which debuted at No.2 in the Irish charts. He released studio album ‘Soulsun’ in May 2017.
Renowned for his searing live shows, Damien is touring the UK in the spring with special St Patrick’s Day show in Glasgow and then heads back to Ireland in July for a headline show at Iveagh Gardens
