Hozier’s global star continues to soar. 2015 was a stellar year for the Irish man following two Billboard Awards, a coveted Ivor Novello, VH-1 Artist Of The Year and stunning sets at Glastonbury, Longitude and Red Rocks, among other summer festival highlights. The quartet of awards, together with his Grammy and BRIT nominations, and feverishly received live shows pay testament to the absolutely incredible rise Hozier has enjoyed since he began making noises on the music scene a little over two years ago. His critically acclaimed debut album entered the Billboard chart at number two (the second biggest debut album of the year), number five in the UK chart, and enjoyed nine weeks at number one in his native Ireland.
Hozier’s success hasn’t been confined to the UK and US with the album also achieving Multi-platinum status in Belgium, Canada, Australia , Germany, France, Italy , Denmark , Ireland, Russia, Sweden, Poland, Switzerland, Austria and the Netherlands. Major TV appearances have helped spread the gospel including the show-stopping duet at the Grammys with Annie Lennox, stand-out appearances on Later with Jools, Jimmy Fallon, David Letterman, Saturday Night Live, Ellen, Jimmy Kimmel, Graham Norton, Coachella and a performance at the Victoria's Secret Fashion show in London.
2.8 million plus albums sold worldwide, over 10 million singles, over 2.5 billion streams, number one in the Global Spotify chart, 2014’s most viral track on Spotify, number one in the global Shazam chart, over 450 million video views and over one million Facebook fans, all this has been achieved in little over two years after headlining the 100-capacity Troubadour in London back in January 2014.
