ChildhoodThe soon-to-be charismatic and highly successful singer-songwriter, who won over millions of fans, was born in the small town of Bray, situated about 20 km from Dublin. The boy grew up in a close-knit family of creative minds. Hozier’s mother is an artist, who actually created the artwork for his debut album while his brother is a director and helped with Hozier’s music videos.
When Andrew was six, his father fell seriously ill and after a failed surgery, complicated by nerve injury, ended up in a wheelchair. The singer remembers that this unfortunate incident has greatly affected his emotional state and world perception. He became withdrawn and quiet and often isolated himself from everyone around him.
