It’s understandable that Ed Sheeran is one of the hottest singers around right now. His music is easy to like. Sheeran is headlining Summerfest 2015 on July 3. Although he is quite young, he’s already found himself to be a multi platinum, award winning musician. His first album, titled “+” came out in 2011. Since then, he’s written music for films, television, and pop stars such as One Direction, and more. He’s since been nominated for over ninety music related awards, but the one that stands out the most is his 2015 Grammy nomination for the song “I See Fire.”
Sheeran trained his voice by singing in his church choir, and worked very hard at his craft during his high school years. His first foray into the music business started out just like most others, when he released his work without a record label backing him up. In 2005, he put out an EP titled The Orange Room. Four years later, he released yet another EP, this one titled You Need Me. Two years later, Sheeran took a huge risk, and flew to Los Angeles to play on any stage that would have him. He was discovered soon after, and was on his way to release a couple more independently produced disks, before signing to Asylum Records in 2012.
Sheeran Releases “X” and Fans Go Wild
Sheeran has only released two full length albums so far. One is titled “+” and the other “x.” The “X” stands for “multiply.” He’s currently backing up the “X” release by touring through 2015. See him on the Marcus Amphitheater in July!
