Andrew Hozier-Byrne (born 17 March 1990), known as Hozier, is an Irish singer and songwriter who was born in Newcastle, County Wicklow, the son of a local blues musician. He attended St. Gerard’s School before he began studying music at Trinity College, Dublin, but dropped out midway through his first year to record demos for Universal Music. While at Trinity, he became involved with the Trinity Orchestra. He was a member of Anúna from 2008 to 2012, and appears as a soloist on their 2012 release Illumination singing “La Chanson de Mardi Gras”. He toured and sang with the group internationally including performances in Norway and the Netherlands

In 2013, Hozier released the EP Take Me to Church (also containing “Like Real People Do”, “Angel of Small Death and The Codeine Scene” and a live version of “Cherry Wine”), with the title track becoming his breakthrough single after it went viral on YouTube. It reached number one on the Irish iTunes singles chart and number two in the official chart on 25 October 2013. Hozier followed up Take Me to Church with the new EP From Eden (also containing “Work Song”, “Arsonist’s Lullabye” and a live version of “To Be Alone”), and a number of festival tour dates and television appearances in the United States. Hozier released his self-titled album, Hozier on 19 September 2014. It featured five singles, including Take Me to Church, Work Song, and From Eden, which were hits on his earlier EPs. On December 5, 2014, it was announced that “Take Me to Church” was nominated at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards for Song of the Year in 2015

 

Hozier is the eponymous debut studio album from Irish recording artist Hozier. The album was released on 19 September 2014 through Island Records and Rubyworks Records. The album contains some tracks from Hozier’s previous two EPs, Take Me to Church and From Eden.

Well received by music critics, Hozier was also commercially successful, reaching top ten positions in Ireland, UK, the United States, Canada, Australia and Denmark. The album’s lead single “Take Me to Church” was a huge success worldwide, and also earned a nomination for Song of the Year at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards in 2015

The lyrics “Two corpses we were, two corpses I saw/ They’d find us in a week” of “In a Week” revolve around an upland area known as the Wicklow Mountains or Wicklow Hills near Hozier’s hometown of Bray. “Anytime you hear ‘Wicklow Hills’, it’s usually before or after the words ‘a body was found’,” said Hozier
