De Ierse singer-songwriter begint zijn loopbaan in de groep Juniper. Eind jaren negentig verhuist hij naar Italië van waaruit hij als straatmuzikant inspiratie opdoet voornieuwe nummers. Het resulteert in 2001 in zijn eerste single The Blowers Daughter. Een jaar later is zijn debuutalbum O een feit. Als veelbelovende jonge artiest krijgt hij in 2005 een European Borders Breaker Award. Van zijn album 9 (2006) komt 9 Crimes in de Tipparade. De opvolger, Dogs, staat vijf weken in de Top 40 en komt tot nummer 17.

In oktober 2014 verschijnt zijn derde studioalbum, My Favourite Faded Fantasy, waarvan I Don’t Want To Change You de eerste single wordt.

Songtekst

Wherever you are
Well, know that I adore you
No matter how far
Well, I can go before you
And if ever you need someone
Well, not that you need helping
But if ever you want someone
I know that I am willing

Oh and I don't want to change you
I don't want to change you
I don't want to change your mind
I just came across an angel
Out among the danger
Somewhere in a stranger's eyes

Wherever you go
Well, I can always follow
I can feed this real slow
If it's a lot to swallow
And if you just want to be alone
Well, I can wait without waiting
And if you want me to let this go
Well, I am more than willing

Oh, cause I don't want to change you
I don't want to change you
I don't want to change your mind
I just came across an angel
Out among the danger
Somewhere in a stranger's eye

Oh and I don't want to change you
I don't want to change you
I don't want to change your mind
I just came across an angel
Out among the danger
Somewhere in a stranger's ...

I've never been with anyone
In the way I've been with you
But if love is not for fun
Then it's doomed, cause

Water races
Water races down
The waterfall
The water races
Water races down
The waterfall

And I don't want to change you
I don't want to change you
I don't want to change your mind
I just came across an angel
Where there is no danger
Where love has eyes and is not blind
