Irish One To Watch : Hozier

Described as a ‘very soulful, very tall Wicklow Man’, Hozier is the biggest up and coming talent in Ireland right now. Each song is delivered with unique style, and unbelievable lyricism. Following his incredible performance in Dublin’s Button Factory, Hozier was shifted underground by record execs for some ‘fine tuning’.

His first performance in a few months was at Other Voices Live, a tiny festival with performances in churches and small venues in Dingle, Co. Kerry. Here it is in all of its glory – enjoy

Hozier’s debut single ‘Take Me To Church’ landed with a slam dunk on the Irish scene in September 2013, and currently stands at just over one million views. While the video producers hail themselves for the ‘excellent cinematography’ that led to its success, it’s pretty clear the song some of the work…

The live performances we’ve seen from Hozier have been bizarre, but amazing. As a public speaker, Hozier shuffles about the stage, stumbling over his sentences. He comes off as an incredibly sweet, normal lad who happens to love music and just wants to do it right. And as soon as he starts strumming, the magic happens. Here are some more songs from his thus far limited collection. We’re sure it will build massively in years to come.

We will be supporting him all of the way. Gowan the Hozier!
