“His songs ponder passion, mortality, compulsion and sin. His voice is a richly melancholy moan, with echoes of Van Morrison and Jeff Buckley; his music is grounded in blues soul and Celtic ballads and it’s full of minor chords, starkly syncopated guitar picking, blunt tom-tom beats and moody drama.” The New York Times
“This is a rare case of substance winning out over style. Put more accurately, this is substance winning out over the mainstream’s style, for indeed, Take Me To Church stands in stark contrast to the rest.” Forbes
Early 2015 saw the then little-known Irish artist ascend to worldwide notoriety. A lot can happen in a few months, and though Andrew Hozier Byrne’s musical past is longer and richer than his tender 24 years suggest, his ascension into the mainstream consciousness has swept across the world, at breakneck speed. He’s performed at the Grammys with Scottish heroine Annie Lennox as well as being nominated for the distinguished Song Of The Year award, performed on BBC’s Live Lounge for the second time with a cover of Ariana Grande’s smash hit Problem and has been honoured by such artists as Ellie Goulding with the release of her Take Me To Church cover with nearly 4 million listens in just a few days. The album and Hozier’s attributable skill deftly draws from soul, folk and blues, creating a mesmerizing final work. His music is that of substance. He has an other-worldly knack of blending bewitching soundscapes, be they underplayed or bombastic, with sharply poignant lyrics, reaching directly into the source of issues that matter. Grab your tickets and witness the grandeur and yet deeply intimate nature of this extraordinary artist.
