Andrew Hozier-Byrne, professionally known as Hozier, has become one of the most influential figures in contemporary music. Born and raised in Ireland, Hozier etched his name in music history through his soulful blend of blues, rock, and indie folk that resonates with listeners across the globe.

Hozier’s journey to the music world’s upper echelons took flight with the release of his debut EP, “Take Me to Church,” in 2013. The eponymous single was a profound and haunting exploration of humanity, love, and betrayal that swiftly gained worldwide attention. The song’s popularity propelled his 2014 self-titled debut album to commercial and critical success, solidifying his position in the global music scene. His follow-up EP, “Nina Cried Power,” and the sophomore album, “Wasteland, Baby!,” further expanded his creative horizons and fan base.

A key feature of Hozier’s work is his knack for collaborating with a wide range of artists. He joined forces with British musician Annie Lennox for a riveting performance at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards. He has also worked with the esteemed Booker T. Jones, known for the band Booker T. & the MG’s, on his “Nina Cried Power” EP. Esteemed ballet dancer Sergei Polunin starred in Hozier’s music video for “Movement.” Mavis Staples, an American rhythm and blues and gospel singer, lent her voice to the title track of “Nina Cried Power.” Additionally, Hozier has shared stages and collaborated with Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Karen Cowley of Wyvern Lingo, Alex Ryan, Rory Doyle, and jazz artist Loah, among others.

Despite his relatively young career, Hozier has received numerous prestigious recognitions. His breakout single “Take Me to Church” earned him a Grammy nomination for Song of the Year in 2015. His debut album topped the Irish Albums Chart and reached number 2 on the Billboard 200, earning a multi-platinum certification. In 2019, his second album, “Wasteland, Baby!,” debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200.
