Photo Essay: Hozier at The Met

Andrew John Hozier-Byrne—between us, known simply as Hozier—stopped by The Met Philly on his Wasteland Baby tour. 

The 29yearold folk rock singer from County Wicklow (UP WICKLOW!) is on the road supporting his second album, the tour’s namesake, with opening act Angie McMahon.   

Born to a blues drummer father and artist mother, the Trinity College graduate realized international and commercial success with his 2014 debut single, “Take Me to Church.” The popularity of the song was helped with a now iconic video featuring renowned ballet dancer Sergei Polunin which was directed by famed visionary, David LaChapelle and choreographed by Jade Hale-Christofi

Hozier’s music and vision often take on social commentary.  A recent video for his song “Movement,” also featuring Polunin, depicts a young man in Russia being attacked for his sexuality.  The singer would eventually distance himself from the dance star after he made some homophobic and sexist comments on an Instagram post.  Hozier has also taken the Catholic church to task over their general views on LGBTQ views.
