Biography

Suffolk, United Kingdom (2005 – present)

Ed Sheeran (born 17 February 1991) is a currently signed under Atlantic Records. Sheeran was born in Halifax, West Yorkshire before moving to Framlingham, Suffolk. In his time in Suffolk, he was known to have flourished as a hidden talent when it came to music. He learned guitar at a very young age, and began writing songs during his time at Thomas Mills High School in Framlingham. By the time Sheeran had left school, he was already certain that music was going to play a major part in his life, and therefore studied at Access To Music in Norwich before moving to London which improved his chances of getting gigs.

Sheeran began recording in 2005, which lead to the release of his first EP, The Orange Room EP. Sheeran also released two albums, a self titled one in 2006 and Want Some? in 2007 gaining little attention. After Sheeran moved to London and had done extensive gigging, performing songs from his EP and albums, as well as ones which he had recently written, he decided to release another EP, You Need Me in late 2009. However, it wasn’t until February 2010 that Sheeran began to get noticed after he posted a video through SB.tv displaying his diverse style. This video led to mainstream rapper Example asking Sheeran to tour with him. Throughout 2010, Sheeran began to be seen by more and more people over the internet through Youtube and his fan-base grew incredibly, with him also getting credit from The Independent newspaper, England football captain Rio Ferdinand and even Elton John.

    It seems that I am one of the very few who doesn't love "Sing." The song is alright, but nothing more. It doesn't give me anything special (like Ed's previous songs do) and I actually cannot understand what's so great or beautiful about it. To me, "Sing" sounds like a copy of Justin Timberlake. And don't get me wrong: There is nothing wrong with Timberlake. He is an outstanding artist. However, if I want to listen to Timberlake, I will put a Timberlake record on. Sheeran's new style is not something I like hearing from him. I am a big fan of changes, experimenting, and trying out new things but I don't like this direction. I would love to see Ed trying more country, folk, or even hip hop, but please no dance or pop music. If I didn't know that the song is by Ed, I would most probably skip it due to it being too overproduced and too ordinary. Compared to, for instance, "I See Fire," the new track is a huge letdown. I really hope that this song is not an indicator for the rest of X [4]
