Hozier is Andrew Hozier-Byrne, an Irish soul / blues musician whose heartfelt songwriting is catching the ears of industry experts across the globe.
Hozier released a four-track EP, Take Me To Church, at the end of last year that successfully introduced the world to his skill as a singer and songwriter. The title track garnered well-deserved attention when the music video (above), which echoed anti-LGBT sentiments that were highly prevalent in Russia at the time, was released. The EP explores themes of self-liberation with beautifully crafted lyrics that are delivered with Hozier’s haunting and sincere voice.
He is about to embark on some light touring, including an appearance at SXSW. With numerous shows in the US and UK sold out already, Hozier is definitely an artist to keep an eye on this year.
