The debut album featuring "Take Me To Church" and "From Eden"

Album CD included

It's not often that you stumble across a songwriter whose lyrics both sound and read like poetry. When those lyrics are set to music that balances burning indignation with lilting tenderness, and delivered in a voice imbued with the spiritual passion and yearning of gospel and the blues, you figure you've chanced upon something special. And so it is with 24-year-old Andrew Hozier-Byrne, an Irish singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from County Wicklow who goes by the name of Hozier.

The Wicklow, Ireland native recently performed at the Newport Folk Festival to rave reviews. NPR's Tiny Desk said of his performance, "Gently bone rattling voice, winning a new audience one beautifully sung phrase at a time." Billboard remarked, "Folk Festival attendees were treated to a sneak preview of Irish wunderkind Hozier's impassioned, richly-textured invocations at Saturday afternoon's For Pete's Sake... "Take Me To Church" was the real draw. People literally came running as soon as they heard the opening strains of that song."
Tastemakers and critics have wholeheartedly embraced his spirited and soulful sound. He's drawn praise from NPR, New York Magazine, KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic, MTV Buzzworthy, Consequence of Sound, and more. Most recently he was featured on NPR's All Things Considered and Tiny Desk Concert. His invigorating performances of his single "Take Me To Church" on The Late Show With David Letterman and The Ellen DeGeneres Show engaged a growing audience.

The powerful single "Take Me To Church" has accrued more than 58 million views on YouTube. Hozier has also remained a constant on Spotify's Viral 50 chart. "Take Me to Church" was nominated at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards for Song of the Year in 2015. It won Top Rock Song at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards.
