Sheeran started recording music at the age of 14. His first collection was released in 2005 and was an instant hit, marking the beginning of what is today a successful and prolific music career. He did several collaborations with already established musicians and artists, then in 2010 he went to Los Angeles where the talented young musician was discovered by Jamie Foxx.
The year saw two more self-released albums by Ed Sheeran, appreciated by a permanently growing online fan base. Sheeran’s third EP made it to number 2 on the iTunes chart in January, 2011 without any promotion and sold 7,000 copies during the first week from the release. Success followed Sheeran for the rest of the year, too: in April he played his first single, The A-Team, on a television show, then he released the song on a single that sold over 55,000 copies during the first week only and made it to number 3 of the UK Single Chart.
Later on the same year; in September, Sheeran released his new album entitled simply "+" – an instant hit in the UK and overseas as well and the album that later on, in 2015, became the British Album of the Year at the Brit Awards.
The following year marked Sheeran’s entry to global stardom. He performed The A-Team at the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II and also at the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games. He also started collaboration with Taylor Swift, working with her on her fourth studio album.
In 2013 he played the opening act for Swift’s U.S. tour and has given successful shows by himself while he continues to compose music and write lyrics for his own albums and for movies as well.
Fans are surely in for lots of great pieces by Ed Sheeran in the future, too and the young artist has just announced that he is setting up a record label, so we will see him helping other talents succeed as well.
