Hozier and Wyvern Lingo
Photographs by Jo
LIVERPOOL'S Empire played host to
one amazing sell out show. Both bands Hozier and Wyvern Lingo were in our
City to perform and, boy'o'boy, did they perform. This historic Liverpool
stage has hosted some amazing world renowned acts and now they can add Irish
singer songwriter and musician from Bray, County Wicklow, Andrew Hozier-Byrne
to the list! This Indie rock, soul, blues mix went down well. Also going
down well was the other Irish act, the support group, a girl band by the
name of Wyvern Lingo, as proven after the show, on the band's Twitter
account with newly found fans like Lauren. @lauren_peers saying:- "@WyvernLingo
opening set in Liverpool was beautiful, I need that ep!" Wyvern
Lingo's performance, in case you did not know, was a short set of electronic
folksy grooves, which livened up the already pumped audience. The arrival of
Hozier was even more appreciated after the girls had performed and as Andrew
walked on stage, the crowds roared with excitement. Then, on the night as
one Hozier fan said: - "It just got better and better!" So if
you attended, please let us know what you thought of the performance by
