In Communion: Damien Rice and "Under the Tongue"

Damien Rice brings us the random tune for today. An Irish singer-songwriter, Rice plays piano, guitar, percussion and clarinet. Originally a member of the rock group Juniper, he left the band and worked as a farmer in Tuscany and busked around Europe before returning to Ireland and starting a solo music career in 2001. He has since released three studio albums and has made musical contributions to charitable causes. This song, Under the Tongue, can be found on the compilation album Music of Ireland: Welcome Home released by Readers Digest in 2010.
