I will often hop on Youtube and watch recent videos of musicians I subscribe to. Today I went to one of my favorite artists channel Orla Gartland where she covered "Take Me To Church" by Hozier. I had never heard of the song or the artist, but loved her rendition. So down the rabbit hole I went in search of the original. I came across many live videos but selected "Cherry Wine". I am now hooked on his hauntingly beautiful voice, a mix between John Paul White of The Civil Wars, Jeff Buckley, and a certain je ne sais quoi, I've yet to put my finger on. I'll let you be the judge, but please leave a comment below if you know what that third quality is.
"Sweet and right and merciful I'm all but washed In the tide of her breathing."
I found the video for Hozier's Take Me To Church to be a bit heavy, which is fine, because I love Orla's version anyway. Hope you enjoy.
