Blues' Rocker Hozier was an unlikely breakthrough musical artist in 2013. His very first single Take Me To Church off his then-maiden project of the same name charted worldwide.
With the overnight fame came gay allegations. But, it also provided Hozier an opportunity to date some of Hollywood hotties. However, he is yet to let to lose the sight of what he set out to do.
Bio - Age, Height, Nationality & Real Name
Pre-fame, Hozier, real name Andrew Hozier-Bryne, was an aspiring musician, having toured the world with the renowned Irish choral group Anuna between 2009 and 2012.
A year before joining the band, he had dropped out of the prestigious musical program at Trinity College in his native Ireland to record demos for Universal Music.
Born on 17th March 1990, Hozier of Irish nationality primarily learned musicianship trades from his parents -- his father John, a member of Dublin-based blues band Free Booze, more so than mother Raine.

Not only did he inherit the penchant for blues from his father, but also his lanky height - six feet and five inches - as well as his signature hair locks. In many ways, Hozier, now age 28, is living his father's dream, who became paraplegic after a failed spine surgery in 1996.
By his admission, the mishap had an undeniable impact on young Hozier. It's no wonder that his music packs so much blues.
Net Worth; Tackling Gay Rumors
His first ever hit - also his first musical introduction to masses - Take Me To Church embodied his Blues background to its core.
Despite the changing landscape of the music business, Hozier remains true to his lineage, crafting one conscious record after another without intent to land his next big hit. His second studio album "Wasteland, Baby!" released in March 2019 under British label Island Records doesn't stray from his Blues roots.
His integrity and unwillingness to give in to the musical trends have only widened his fanbase, which in turn meant an increase in an album as well as tour ticket sales. The 28-year-old Irish rocker, as a result, boasts a net worth of $5 million.

To think that it all began with the music video for Take Me To Church going viral is mind-boggling. The four-minute-long clip recieved notoriety for its pro-LGBTQ messaging. Without reading much into the song's lyrics, detractors were quick to label Hozier, a closeted gay.
Months later, he clarified that the song was an aftermath of his breakup from an ex-girlfriend and the accompanying video was as much about sex as it was about the full-on bashing of the organized religion.
Dating Irish Girlfriend? Views On Marriage
Hozier's anti-establishment views permeate throughout other aspects of his life as well. But none standout than his thoughts on marriage. In 2015 interview, he quipped:-
"I have no plans to not get married. I think marriage is a scary concept. It’s a scary concept for anybody. I’m not sure where I sit with that."
Perhaps, his fear of commitment is the reason why things between him and his alleged girlfriend Saoirse Ronan, an Irish actress best known for her work in Lady Bird, didn't work out. The rumored lovebirds initially fueled the dating gossip in the spring of 2017 after they got spotted enjoying a string of intimate dates.

But after the musician got spotted with a mystery brunette later that year, reports claimed that the relationship between the two was a done and dusted affair. Hozier and his rumored girlfriend, Ronan developed a bond while working on the former's video for his song Cherry Wine a year earlier in 2016.
The Nina Cried Power crooner's other industry romance includes fellow musician, Taylor Swift. He and the "Shake It Off songstress" were all over each other at the 2015 Grammy's after-party.

Though his romantic life has persistently placed him at the pedestal, Hozier loathes the attention.
A staunch opposition against the use of social media for mundane updates, the Irish rocker takes pride in being a gangly introvert. Maybe, it's why he doesn't advertise his dating life online.
