Hozier



Only 23 this singer-songwriter is blazing these days with his unique voice and his interesting lyrics. He comes from a musical family and has been influenced by his father's musical library which has a lot of blues. But this guy is making his own kind of blues that have people talking, smiling and of course, listening.


 “The song was born of this idea that a child, when it is born, is born into sin. So, before you are a woman, or a gay man, just as a person, you are being undermined by the Catholic church as somebody who is sinful, as somebody who should be ashamed of yourself, and be begging for forgiveness. I wanted to use sex as a celebration of life; there are few things as human as the act of making love.”-Hozier

LOVE him! He almost sounds like Elton John sometimes though.
