Hozier: Episode 115


This week Ireland's fastest rising musician and Grammy-nominated artist Andrew Hozier Byrne met Jarlath for an insightful chat about his journey which many people will be surprised to hear began with him being spotted by Louis Walsh at a school talent show. Hozier opens up about his admiration for his parents, the music he has never shared, that difficult Gay Byrne interview, his struggles at Trinity College and how his career has not been the skyrocket that many people think it has.


Hozier explains the sequence of events which led to Take Me To Church becoming a viral sensation, his anxiety over the decision sell his music to Dr Dre, a startling revelation about Saturday Night Live and why he feels the need to censor himself in interviews.
