Acclaim for Hozier’s recent shows and newly-released music has been widespread. The Guardian dubbed the lead single ‘Nina Cried Power’ as “startling”, with The Evening Standard commenting in their 5* live review that “Hozier’s watertight backing band wreathed the choruses in four-part harmonies, elevating his new songs into the realms of the celestial”.
Hozier’s EP ‘Nina Cried Power’ is out now via Island Records, and has already been streamed over 8 million times on Spotify alone in its first week of release. Consisting of four brand new tracks written and performed by Hozier, the EP’s lead single features legendary soul/gospel singer Mavis Staples, with iconic musician Booker T Jones on organ.

Born Andrew Hozier-Byrne, Hozier is an award-winning musician, singer and songwriter from Ireland. His number one, debut studio album ‘Hozier’ was released in October 2014 and includes the multi-Platinum, Grammy-nominated anthem ‘Take Me To Church’, which later won ‘Best Song’ for Hozier at the 2015 Ivor Novello Awards. The record also featured the optimistic, up-tempo ‘Someone New’, the soulful ‘Work Song’, and early stand out ‘From Eden’. In 2016, Hozier released the album’s closing track ‘Cherry Wine’ as a charity single to create awareness of the domestic abuse problems worldwide, with proceeds benefiting a series of international domestic abuse charities. The official video features 3-time Oscar-nominated actress Saoirse Ronan. Hozier followed up the success of his debut LP with the track ‘Better Love’, taken from the soundtrack of the Warner Bros’ adventure film The Legend Of Tarzan. His ‘Nina Cried Power’ EP is out now, and more music is set to follow in due course from Hozier.
