Sheeran continues to polish his impressive craft. "x" finds a hungry artist doing everything possible to elevate to another level, simply by abiding by his instincts.
2015 sees Ed Sheeran taking his blockbuster album X (pronounced multiply) on tour across North America. The British singer-songwriter's sophomore effort, which contained the singles Sing, Don't and Bloodstream, topped the charts across the world and was Spotify's most streamed album of 2014. It was a record which saw Sheeran tinkering with his delicate, acoustic pop, infusing it this time around with more pronounced R&B flourishes and collaborating with the likes of Pharrell and Rudimental.
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?
