@_marimadrid Few greater joys than seeing work as an element in somebody else's, esp in a medium it'd otherwise never be. Thank you both!

We couldn’t stop laughing when we came across this post recently.
Hozier played a Fender Pro Telecaster, on loan from Danny Schnair of Columbia label-mates, Frenship. Hozier doesn’t have a Tele in his collection, so it was good to finally see him play one.
Hozier’s high school friend, Flavia, played a set at Winston House and it was at her behest that he got up to do a song. What are friends for?
Apr 14: Hozier’s Take Me To Church is #9 the most Shazamed songs of all-time.
