The British singer-songwriter hasn't just become a star - he's helped make over pop's sound!
2017 sees Ed Sheeran taking his blockbuster studio album Divide on tour across North America. The British artist's status as one of the biggest singer-songwriters out at the moment is certainly cemented in this, his third album, which contains the mega-hit singles Shape Of You, and Castle On The Hill. It's seen him topping the charts across the world and infuses his delicate, acoustic pop with even more pronounced R&B flourishes.
How does a school geek, famed for his ginger hair and massive blue specs, go on to become one of the biggest stars in the world? Welcome to the Ed Sheeran School of folk acoustic hip-hop thought. Since he was younger, Ed had always wanted to make music, and he set out to write and record his own songs at a feverish pace.
With warm, lyrical melodies that can have a sharp bite, he traversed the folk-hip hop scene and emerged as a major player, selling out concerts almost immediately after the release of breakthrough single 'The A Team'.
2010 saw Ed take a one way flight to America with little more than one contact, and manage to land up be-friending Jamie Foxx, who let him use his recording studio once he'd heard Sheeran at an open mic night in NYC. Fast forward 5 years later, and Ed is besties with Taylor Swift and is something of a worldwide heartthrob. Who would have thought it? Catch Ed Sheeran when he plays Hammerstein Ballroom in New York , NY , showing for one date only on 14 Jun 2014!
