WYEP's Joey Spehar interviews Hozier

Joey Spehar had the pleasure of sitting down with Irish singer Hozier to talk about his latest album, “Unreal Unearth.” Known for his ability to weave intricate narratives through his music, Hozier reveals the significant influence of the celebrated 18th-century satirist, Jonathan Swift, on the creation of this album.

Joey Spehar is a Pittsburgh native who started as a volunteer D.J. at WYEP, fresh out of college in 2006. He took on any job they’d let him do like editing audio, engineering remote broadcasts, and shoveling snow.
