A look back in Hozier history.
The Throwback section was a regular part of our In A Week posts on Storify where we looked at events, performances and anniversaries from that week in previous years. Now that we’ve moved to HoziersGuitars.com, we’ll be posting a #TBT every week with these little gems.
In the meantime, we have some catching up from mid-December to do. So here goes!
1 YEAR AGO
Hozier wrote an essay for Q Magazine: Anti-social media and the politics of me by Hozier (December 16, 2014)
Home for the holidays, Hozier was on RTÉ One The Late, Late Show and performed a stripped down solo version of Take Me To Church with his parents looking on, and then stayed for a chat. (December 19, 2014)
Published on December 23, 2014, this is a great behind the scenes look at the From Eden video shoot.
We don’t think he realized how unimaginably good 2015 would prove to be.
Thank you to everyone for making 2014 such an unimaginably good year. Here's to the next, will see you in the coming months! Happy New Year

Work Song at the famous Troubadour, Hozier’s first headlining show in London. With Caoimhe Barry (Wyvern Lingo) and Jess Kavanagh (Gin ‘n’ Juice, Lethal Dialect, Kodaline, Tongue in Chic) on backing vocals. The person who posted the video commented:
This is the best gig i have ever been to. This man has incredible talent and brilliant songs…lots of them. Real substance and subtlety.
