I had heard of Ed Sheeran a long time ago, but sort of put him off as another boring UK singer/songwriter. But then when I connected with some of my British friends, they mentioned how big Ed has become over there. I knew there had to be something deeper to his music.
My first surprise was his age. Today, he’s only 21. I knew he was young, but that’s VERY young. It’s certainly astoundingly young for someone that’s taking over an entire nation.
So then I dove right into his album. Even if I skip over the overplayed single, “A Team,” I learned that the collection of songs cover an emotional spectrum and feature a unique blend of white rapping and catchy melodies.
Throw in the fact that he is a ginger (self-proclaimed), and you have yourself a distinct character with a bright future ahead of him.
If you’d like to learn more, you can find this album on Amazon.
One of my personal favorite songs from the album, “Give Me Love” is embedded below.
