Hozier U.S. Radio 2018: Performances Then and Now

Hozier Radio Performances

The Hozier U.S. Radio 2018 promo tour took him back to familiar places to play cuts from his Nina Cried Power EP. Here’s a look at the best of his radio performances this go round and how they harkened back to earlier visits.

Indie88 – Collective Arts Black Box

Toronto: 9 September 2018

While in Toronto, Hozier visited Indie 88.1 to perform Nina Cried Power for their Collective Arts Black Box Session. You need to click through and watch this stunning performance.

Back in October 2014, a few weeks after the release of his first album, Hozier performed a rare acoustic version of Angel of Small Death & the Codeine Scene for the Collective Arts Black Box. The session also included Take Me To Church and an interview, both in this video:

World Cafe  – WXPN 88.5 – NPR

Philadelphia: 3 October 2018

Hozier made an appearance at the WXPN studios just before his concert at The Fillmore in Philadelphia. Earlier this summer, Hozier was interviewed by the World Cafe host, Talia Schlanger, regarding his upcoming EP.

Hozier’s first performance for World Cafe was on 15 May 2014 as part of Non-COMMvention 2014 and later rebroadcast on NPR. Here’s his performance of From Eden from 2014.

KCRW 89.9 – Morning Becomes Eclectic

Los Angeles: 9  October 2018

One of the biggest names in independent radio, KCRW is known for bringing us brilliant performances from incredible names in music. They brought us Hozier’s first live US radio performance back in March 2014.

So it was no surprise to see Hozier stopping by the studio again for a performance and an interview. Be sure to check out the full performance in audio or video format.

Brian Lowe, the photographer at KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic even caught Hozier out of the studio as well.

KFOG 105.4

Oakland: 16 October 2018

As part of a KFOG Studio Sessions Sound Check, Hozier gave an interview and performance prior to his concert at Fox Theatre in Oakland, California.  Back in May 2014, Hozier joined KFOG in studio to sing Cherry Wine, To Be Alone, and Take Me To Church.

While in Oakland, Hozier also stopped by Alt 105.3 for a studio session. Alt 105.3 might be a new face this tour, but its predecessor, Live 105, brought us the absolutely hilarious 8-Bit Hozier and Closure with Hozier. (No really, you need to watch them.)

Sirius XM

We can’t talk about past and present without mentioning his recent SiriusXM interview. Even though it’s not a performance, Larry Flick was the first person to interview Hozier on U.S. radio back on 10 March 2014. Hozier also did a performance for SiriusXM in August 2014, was interviewed by them at the Wayhome Festival in 2015, and again this year at Austin City Limits.
