Hozier Biography & News
So you haven't heard of Hozier? You have no excuse now. The Irish musician's "Take Me To Church" has officially been announced as Spotify's most streamed track of the year and the most shared song on the service. The achievements have led Spotify to name the artist the Spotlight Breakout Star of 2014.
Officially born Andrew Hozier Byrne, but known simply by his middle name, Hozier hails from Bray, County Wicklow and became their 'it' man while pursuing a degree in music at Trinity College, Dublin. Though he dropped out midway through his first year to record demos for Universal Music, he did spend time as part of the Trinity Orchestra and was a member of the Irish choral group Anuna from 2008 to 2012.
Hozier's "Take Me To Church" EP was his big breakthrough as a solo artist, with the title track going viral on YouTube (in fact, it has over 40 million views to take, and is number one on the Shazam worldwide chart). The song also reached number one on the Irish iTunes singles chart and No. 2 on the official chart. The follow-up EP, "From Eden," then sparked a number of festival tour dates and television appearances in the United States.
Hozier recently received his very first Grammy nomination for Song of the Year, following the debut of his self-titled album, which landed at No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard chart. He will headline two sold-out shows at London's Shepeherds Bush Empire in January.
