Wicklow Native Hozier To Perform On Ellen DeGeneres Show


Just two days after appearing on America’s prestigious David Letterman Show, Wicklow born musician Andrew ‘Hozier’ Byrne announces a slot on another chat show institution.

The singer broke the story on Twitter on Friday, referring to it as ‘dizzying news’. It’s no surprise considering that the twenty-four year old is yet to release his debut album. His heady rise to fame has been largely due to the two blistering and expansive singles ‘Take Me to Church’ and ‘From Eden’, both of which garnered intense radio play and a legion of fans. It’s hard to believe it’s not even a year since the first single became an over night hit thanks to Youtube. A winsome performance on RTE’s Other Voices series cemented his position as a new talent with a mature and soulful repertoire.

Yet even with such an abundance of talent, describing Hozier’s rise to fame as meteoric could be seen as an understatement. Already Hozier can boast sell out shows in both New York and Los Angeles. Still, if his competent performance on Letterman is anything to go by there’s no worry that he’ll be able to pull off another wonderful set for DeGeneres which would raise his profile even higher.

Hozier and his talented band will be playing a slew of festivals this year including Glastonbury and you can catch him here for the Longitude festival in Marlay Park on July 19th.
