Andrew John Hozier-Byrne (born 17 March 1990), known professionally as Hozier, is an Irish musician, singer and songwriter. His music primarily draws from folk, soul, and blues, often using religious and literary themes. He had his international breakthrough after releasing his debut single ‘Take Me to Church’, which has been certified multi-platinum in several countries.

Born and raised in County Wicklow, Hozier released his debut EP in 2013, featuring ‘Take Me to Church’, which became a rock radio hit in the U.S. and peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100. His eponymous debut studio album was released in September 2014 to critical acclaim. It has been certified 6× platinum in Ireland and multi-platinum in several countries. In September 2018, he released an EP titled NINA CRIED POWER and featured the title track as a single, reaching number one on the Billboard Adult Alternative Songs chart. He released his second album WASTELAND, BABY! in March 2019, which debuted atop the Irish Albums Chart and the Billboard 200, and has since been certified gold in the U.S.


On 31 December 2021, Hozier announced his upcoming album, stating on Twitter “UNREAL UNEARTH will start to find its way to your ears next year, come hell or high water.” He has released snippets of lyrics from two upcoming songs on social media, ‘De Selby’ and ‘Rob the Goddess’. He released the single ‘Swan Upon Leda’ on 7 October 2022, with its inspiration coming from Egyptian feminist Mona Eltahawy, as well as the Dobbs decision in the United States and the 2022 Mahsa Amini protests in Iran. Atwood Magazine praised the song as “a haunting and heartbreakingly beautiful prayer, plea, and cry for reproductive rights and women’s empowerment.” ‘Blood Upon the Snow’ was released on 9 November 2022, as a collaboration with composer Bear McCreary for the video game God of War Ragnarök. On 16 March 2023, Hozier announced the UNREAL EARTH album tour. He released the extended play EAT YOUR YOUNG on 17 March 2023. The EP features three songs: ‘Eat Your Young’, ‘All Things End’, and ‘Through Me (The Flood)’. UNREAL EARTH is set to be released on 18 August 2023.
