Hozier Performs at the BBC Music Awards, Wins Song of the Year

Posted:

Hozier capped off an impressive 2015 with yet another accolade, taking home Song of the Year for soulful ballad “Take Me to Church” at the BBC Music Awards held earlier this week.

As the only category voted on by the public, it’s considered a highly coveted honor and the Irish singer/songwriter bested stiff competition such as Ed Sheeran, the Weekend and Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars to take home the trophy.

“I genuinely was not expecting that, especially looking at the other nominations,” said a gracious and humble Hozier during his acceptance speech. “There’s absolute juggernauts there, just absolute amazing songs. To be among them is an honor, and to win is a shock.”

Accompanied by the BBC Concert Orchestra, Hozier also took the stage during the show with his Gretsch Jet Baritone to perform the award-winning song.

Hozier continues his world tour through March 2016, and  you can check out his tour dates here.

Watch George Ezra Play ‘Budapest’ at KROQ’s Red Bull Sound Space

Posted:

George Ezra KROQBritish singer/songwriter George Ezra recently performed a few songs at the Red Bull Sound Stage for Los Angeles’ KROQ, a set that included the hit “Budapest” from 2014′s Wanted on Voyage.

Armed with just an acoustic guitar, Ezra’s strong voice delivered the rumbling song with all the depth and passion for which he’s become known. Ezra also engaged the crowd during the part that featured a guitar solo in the plugged-in version, asking if the audience could just imagine it.

“Budapest” was one of Ezra’s breakout hits, as it reached No. 3 on the U.K. Singles chart, No. 2 on Billboard‘s Hot Rock Songs chart, and No. 1 in Austria and New Zealand.

You can check out Ezra in action below and click here for his upcoming tour dates.
