For lots of people in the UK, this was the first time they’d heard the Irish artist’s work – despite several major appearances in the US. It made quite the impression.

Some people were downright blown away.

In fact, he literally made a few people cry.

Hozier’s debut album hit number one in the Irish charts this week, and went platinum just a week after release.

He says he’ll be playing more Irish shows soon.
