About Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran has become one of, if not the, biggest singer-songwriters Britain has to offer.

The singer cemented himself as a firm favourite with both critics and music lovers with his unique voice, sparse instrumentation and candid lyrics.
Halifax-born Sheeran began his music career with the independent release of The Orange Room EP in 2005. More DIY releases and collaborations with artists from genres as varied as hip-hop, grime and indie followed. Notably he made it to No.2 in the iTunes chart without any label or promotion with his EP No.5 Collaborations Project, which featured Wiley, JME, Devlin, Sway and Ghetts.
