Flashback to 2014

Hozier performed at The Great Escape Festival in Brighton, England on May 8, 2014.

The Great Escape Festival was the first performance with Alana Henderson and most of Hozier’s crew, who would stay on until the end of the tour almost two years later.

Other familiar faces in The Great Escape’s line-up that year included two of Hozier’s support acts, James Bay and George Ezra, and his fellow countryman Gavin James.

Here’s a review from 2014 of Hozier’s gig at The Great Escape.   The Wave: [Live Review] Hozier – The Great Escape – Brighton 7/05/2014

While at The Great Escape Festival, Hozier did a live session for Gigwise where he recorded this fantastic version of Cherry Wine.


We think Cookie Monster is an excellent match for a musician with a sweet-tooth. After all, Cookie Monster is known for his musical prowess. Sing along!
