Sheeran's humble beginnings
Starting a career in music is never an easy endeavour, and it is common knowledge that Sheeran spent a large part of his early career couch surfing. It was also around this time that the young singer-songwriter played an astonishing 312 shows in one year! It was here when Ed Sheeran was finally acclaimed for his talent, after releasing the ever impressive EP, Loose Change!
Ed Sheeran's debut and rise to stardom
Releasing his debut album, +, in 2011, songs like “The A-Team”, “You Need Me, I Don’t Need You” and “Lego House” proved that the young songwriter had a true talent. What was especially notable about +, was the elements of R&B and hip-hop that have become some of Sheeran’s trademark sounds! Firing his former manager in order to pursue music the way he wanted to, Sheeran audaciously recounts the whole thing in “You Need Me, I Don't Need You”, as The Independent's Andy Gill wrote “He (Ed Sheeran) is right to trust his own instincts: if he had followed the advice to tone down the crackhead portrait of “The A-Team”, maybe dye his ginger barnet a more commercial colour, and perhaps dispense with those hip-hop influences that could confuse older listeners, Sheeran might have wound up with a respectable, if predictable, career as a mainstream folkie singer-songwriter rocking the outer reaches of Radio 2. Instead, he’s a bona fide hitmaker with a colossal YouTube following, working in the argot and style of his own generation”.
In 2014 Ed released X and finally took America by storm. X peaked straight at number one in both the UK and the US! Much of the songs from X, were actually written after the release of his debut album +, yet he decided to wait. The move certainly proved to be the right one, as the following year, Sheeran performed three sold-out shows in the ever impressive, Madison Square Garden! Leading the album with hit single “Sing”, it’s this track that featured the heavily talked about collaboration with Pharrell Williams! Considering the track was written with Justin Timberlake in mind, Sheeran is the first to embrace the references, saying how much of a fan he is of Timberlake’s debut album Justified!
