The highly anticipated 13th series of hit music show Other Voices kicks off on Sunday March 15 with a special on chart-topping singer/songwriter Hozier.
The Bray musican first played Other Voices in Dingle in December 13 before playing the Other Voices stage at Electric Picnic in August last year.
In this special show, Hozier gives an in-depth interview revealing his musical influences and the significance of his first playing of the OV festival.
Philip King, the founder of Other Voices, said Hozier represents all that the series holds as important.
"Hozier bursts with talent but is modest about it. As with the old adage, with truth there is power, Hozier's honesty makes him a fascination in the music world. His interview for this series gives an insight into how he handles his stardom and where he might be going in his musical development."
"I am proud that we have got to a 13th series of Other Voices. It has been a huge struggle through the recession and I pay tribute to artists like Hozier who have been loyal supporters to the series because it gave them the start. This series is the strongest so far with Hozier, Damien Rice, again somebody we were involved with very early on, along with Jessie Ware, Young Fathers, Walking On Cars and Ibeyi amongst many others."
The HOzier special will be followed by a 'Best Of' episode on March 22 featuring James Vincent McMorrow, Lisa Hannigan & John Smith, The Frames, Little Green Cars, The Coronas, Mick Flannery, Kodaline, Villagers, The Strypes and more.
Aidan Gillen presents the new series, the first official episode of which lands on April 12 with music and interviews with Damien Rice, All We Are and Eaves. In The IMRO Other Room is Cloud Castle Lake and from the archives, Anna Calvi.
Woah - did Madonna actually fall of stage at the Brits? It seemed incredible - and yet that was what apparently happened as, after a largely supine evening, the UK music industry shindig belatedly lived up to its notorious reputation.
