Alright, full disclosure here. The more I listen to this guy, the more I like him. When touring with Taylor Swift during her massive 2013 tour in the States, I personally thought this backup. or warmup act if you will, wouldn't flourish beyond that tour without the help of the headlining megastar pulling for him. I just didn't know his story. Obviously the tour helped bring him some prominence in the mainstream, but know this; He was destined anyways. Gaining attention for his You Tube works, he self released three EPs . His fan base grew, and soon caught the attention of notables as The Independent newspaper, Jamie Fox, and Elton John.
After signing with Asylum Records, his debut album, + (read as "plus"), was released on 9 September 2011 and contained the song "The A Team". Sheeran was on his way. His second album, X (read as multiply) and his recently released third album (Divide), are big chart toppers .
I started to go back into his earlier works, read up on his story, and I admit, I was pleasantly surprised. His style is a blended sort of acoustic pop, beatbox, hip hop, folk and some mishmash of romantic ballads. Some of the stuff that I've never been keen on, but I do enjoy watching his live videos and listen to his voice intonations. I think he's a confident, charismatic and generally grateful bloke who loves what he does. And that's enough for me to see him live. You might want to as well.
