Mixing soulful and gospel sounds with classic rock formulas, Hozier (a.k.a. Andrew Hozier-Byrne) is a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter from Ireland. After releasing two successful EPs, his much anticipated self-titled debut album is set for U.S. release on October 7th. With his band, Hozier recently played an FUV Live set at Electric Lady Studios, and he also talked with me about his past and upcoming recordings and performing at the Newport Folk Festival.
