Irish singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Hozier
Irish singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Hozier rose to global attention in 2013 when his moody and soulful rock single “Take Me to Church” became a viral success. The song catapulted him into a major-label contract for his eponymous debut, platinum certifications in 11 countries, and a Grammy nomination for Song of the Year in 2015. After several years of touring and promotion, he returned with the 2018 EP Nina Cried Power and his second full-length, Wasteland, Baby!, which hit number one in the U.S. and Ireland upon its release in 2019. Hozier’s first original track of the next decade was the poignant 2022 protest song “Swan Upon Leda,” which appeared on 2023 LP Unreal Unearth. – AllMusic.com
Rolling Stone hailed his musical perspective as “Drinks-in-the-air Nineties
Rolling Stone hailed his musical perspective as “Drinks-in-the-air Nineties Country at an Alabama vs. Auburn tailgate,” and that is just the type of energy fans have come to expect from Riley Green. Raised on the sounds of traditional Country, Bluegrass and Southern Gospel music, the Jacksonville, AL native learned the spirit of songwriting and performing at a young age while spending time with his grandfather, Buford Green, who ran the Golden Saw Music Hall. That stage laid a foundation for the songs Riley would craft in the years to come and values learned from another generation.
He fittingly shares co-writing credits alongside his two grandfathers posthumously on the 2xPLATINUM certified “I Wish Grandpas Never Died,” which People praised “might take him to a whole new stratosphere.” Evident on his debut album Different ‘Round Here (BMLG Records), featuring the PLATINUM-certified hit No. 1 “There Was This Girl,” MusicRow noted his “great Country vocal, honest presentation and true-to-life lyrics.” Riley’s Behind the Bar collection with GOLD-certified “If It Wasn’t For Trucks” and We Out Here: Live followedas winning the 2020 ACM Awards New Male Artist of the Year Award has “brought Country back to its roots: the blue collar sounds for the working man, by the working man” (Whiskey Riff). His collaboration with Thomas Rhett on “Half Of Me” earned Riley his second No. 1 at Country radio as his latest single “Different ‘Round Here (Ft. Luke Combs),” which is currently climbing through the Top 30 on Country radio. Steadily delivering tracks directly to his eager and loyal following, his sophomore album, Ain’t My Last Rodeo is slated to be released October 13.
Named a CMT “Listen Up Artist,” Riley was also voted as one of the CRS 2020 New Faces and earned Music Row’s Breakout Artist of the Year. Having just served as direct support for Morgan Wallen and completing the Luke Combs World Tour with Lainey Wilson across North America, Riley is currently hitting the road as a headliner. He has previously hit the road with Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Brad Paisley, Jon Pardi and Dierks Bentley.
