An instantly recognizable voice and stirring songcraft solidified Irish troubadour Hozier as a Grammy-nominated, award-winning multi-platinum singer and songwriter. Driven by the thought-provoking quintuple-platinum anthem, “Take Me To Church,” his self-titled full-length debut bowed at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 (the second biggest debut album of the year) and went on to achieve triple RIAA Platinum status. It reached number 5 in the UK charts, and enjoyed nine weeks at number 1 in his native Ireland (including spending an incredible 438 weeks in the Irish Top 50 charts). Indeed the album rose to no. 3 in the UK ahead of his third sell-out UK tour, while both “Take Me To Church”, and his second single “Someone New”, gave the Irishman two singles in the UK Top 30 that year, “Someone New” won a BMI London award and the official video featured the acclaimed “Game of Thrones” star Natalie Dormer.
