Irish musician and composer Conor Walsh passed away suddenly this week.
The Mayo born pianist and electro composer had released his debut EP The Front last year.
Taking to Twitter, Hozier paid tribute to the musician, who had supported him on his sold-out Irish tour in 2013.
Shocked to hear of the sudden passing of Conor Walsh. He was far too young and had far too bright a future to go like this. @conorwalshpiano

The music man was known for his performances at Electric Picnic, Body & Soul and Other Voices.
While he was compared to the likes of Philip Glass and Aphex Twin, his music had been used on the soundtracks to short films, as well as on RTÉ’s Prime Time, TV3 and RnaG documentaries.
