Born Andrew Hozier-Byrne, Hozier is an award-winning musician, singer and songwriter from Ireland. His debut studio album Hozier was released in October 2014 and includes the multi-Platinum, Grammy-nominated anthem “Take Me To Church,” 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. Watch the song’s powerful video starring Saoirse Ronan here. Hozier followed up the success of his debut LP with a soundtrack cut “Better Love” from Warner Bros’ adventure film The Legend Of Tarzan starring Alexander Skarsgård, Margot Elise Robbie, Christopher Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson. He has performed on Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The TODAY Show, and more.
Newport Festivals Foundation has made a donation on his behalf to The Angel Band Project to provide life-affirming music therapy programs for survivors of sexual assault and intimate partner violence. Music therapy gives a voice to survivors and allows them to safely work through their trauma by exploring music interventions such as songwriting, lyric analysis, drumming, and spontaneous music making.
Quote from Rachel Ebeling, Executive Director
We gratefully thank Hozier for their support of The Angel Band Project's mission — to use the power of music to provide healing, raise awareness, and promote positive social change for survivors of sexual violence. We are humbled by your support!
