With a big, soulful voice capable of plunging to dark, doomy depths and swooping up into wild, lupine howls, 24-year-old Andrew Hozier-Byrne has definitely got the raw grit and talent that it takes to be one of the biggest artists to come out of this year! We have all probably heard at least one of his songs on the radio, with hits such as 'Take Me To Church', 'Angel of Small Death & The Codine' and 'From Eden'. Originally from County Wicklow in Ireland he has brought together a mixture of Indie Rock, Soul and Blues into his music. He has brought together his influences from the likes of Muddy Water, Motown, Pink Floyd, Ella Fitzgerald and Nina Simone and blended them into his unique sweet unison of his own songs. The Gospel choirs hum and swell as the the rougher edges of his riffs play over the top! This man can also hold a stage like no-one else. He is able to completely captivate an audience and keep you on the edge of your seat throughout his shows, and he doesn't even have to move a muscle from the front of the stage! It's quite an art, he puts on a show, but not by roaming the stage. He is a truly talented musician and definitely one to watch for the years to come! http://https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egwkDB5ZzKI
