You Oughta Know – Hozier
In a world inundated with noise passed off as music, it’s a rarity to discover something that speaks to your soul. The raw emotion that Hozier’s voice conveys in his music is truly refreshing. Andrew Hozier-Byrne is more than just another musician, he’s a genuinely gifted storyteller. The Ireland native is one that doesn’t shy from controversial topics, such is the case in his moving single titled “Take Me To Church”. Check out the video and an interview in which he shares the inspiration for the ground-breaking hit. On a side note, I would like to thank author Jay McLean for sharing her obsession with such a wonderful artist, without which it may have been another couple of months before I came across this musical gem (I don’t listen to the radio, ever). As if the that’s not enough, Hozier covered “Do I Wanna Know?” by Arctic Monkeys! The man’s got taste. Enjoy!
