Artist of the Week - Ed Sheeran

Artist of the Week Ed Sheeran!
We'd love to claim Ed Sheeran as a West Yorkshire lad and in part we can, Ed Sheeran was born in Hebden Bridge in 1991 - although he was raised in Suffolk.
In 2011 Ed released an independent EP which caught the attention of both Elton John and Jamie Foxx and shortly after he signed to Asylum Records. His debut album was certified quintuple platinum in the UK and he went on to win 2 Brit awards in 2012  for Best British Male Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act. This song "The A Team" won the Ivor Novello Award for Best Song Musically and Lyrically.
Ed took on a massive 64 date tour supporting Taylor Swift in North America.

2015 will see Ed tour Europe and Australia and New Zealand before a date at Wembley Stadium in July.

Weird fact about Ed: He is the second cousin of Krypton factor presenter and broadcaster Gordon Burns!!!
