Born Andrew Hozier-Byrne, Hozier is an award-winning musician, singer and songwriter from Ireland. His number one, debut studio album ‘Hozier’ was released in October 2014 and includes the multi-Platinum, Grammy-nominated anthem ‘Take Me To Church’, which later won ‘Best Song’ for Hozier at the 2015 Ivor Novello Awards. The record also featured the optimistic, up-tempo ‘Someone New’, the soulful ‘Work Song’, and early stand out ‘From Eden’.

In 2016, Hozier released the album’s closing track ‘Cherry Wine’ as a charity single to create awareness of the domestic abuse problems worldwide, with proceeds benefiting a series of international domestic abuse charities. The official video features 3-time Oscar-nominated actress Saoirse Ronan. Hozier followed up the success of his debut LP with the track ‘Better Love’, taken from the soundtrack of the Warner Bros’ adventure film The Legend Of Tarzan.

His startling ‘Nina Cried Power’ EP followed in September 2018, featuring legendary soul/gospel singer Mavis Staples and iconic musician Booker T Jones on organ. Hozier has dedicated the song to Staples and to the music heritage of artists such as Nina Simone, Joni Mitchell, Billie Holiday, James Brown, Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie. His long awaited second album, “Wasteland, Baby!” will be released on March 1st.
