It’s tough to ignore some vocal qualities. Hozier, an Irish musician a year older than myself, brings a rough, sexy, and strong sound to his guitar-driven music. I can’t get enough. Bonus points for the killer man bun!
A little Kings of Leon, a little Black Keys, and some soul influences give his recordings a unique sound that is still familiar. Catchy and bold, the production is a bit rugged and risky at times with vocal runs. Overall, great sound and definitely an artist to watch. “Take Me to Church” is already making waves on the radio, but I’ve decided to feature “From Eden” which is a bit softer and more melodic. The album will be in my iTunes shortly!
