Happy Tour-niversary Lorraine!

This week marks one year since Lorraine Barnes made her very first appearance on backing vocals with Hozier, on an Italian TV show, no less! (Click through for full video.)


Lorraine’s first live show with Hozier was one year ago today (21 January, 2015) at the 02 Academy in Oxford. Here’s her first stage introduction – too bad she’s not in the shot!

Ah…. that’s better. Here’s her smiling self in the stage intro from Columbia, MD. (June)

This video has the rare perspective of actually having Lorraine Barnes and Rachael Lampa clearly in the shot for its length, giving us the opportunity to watch her work, uninterrupted. (August)

And then later, being guilty of eating too many tacos.

Then, sometimes Lorraine is just too cool for school. (September)

Take a bow Lorraine! The tour wouldn’t have been the same without your smiling, dancing and singing wonderful self! (Edinburgh/January 2016)

Bonus: The Infamous Night of the Cornrows

What do you do when boredom takes hold on a long overnight bus ride from Brussels to London? You give Hozier and the rest of the band cornrows, of course! (November)

It is done. Look upon our 'rows and despair.

  1. I get that being on tour is a lot of work – but it sure looks like a lot of F U N ! Lorraine is talented, beautiful and I gather a lot of fun!
