English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran has quickly become a household name internationally for his unique vocals and awe-inspiring abilities as a lyricist. With his debut album, +, Sheeran captured the attention of the world with music that is painfully honest and relatable to others regardless of social barriers that exist.
Sheeran’s musical career began in 2005 with the then 14-year-old recording his first album, The Orange Room EP. After spending a short while longer in school, at the age of 16, Sheeran left the path of traditional education and made the decision to travel U.K. to play various gigs and shows. It was by a stroke of luck that Sheeran eventually met American singer and actor Jamie Foxx in California and Foxx provided the means for Sheeran’s career to become what it is today.
Following Sheeran’s confirmation that his sophomore album will be released in upcoming months, we’ve decided to take a look back at some of his best songs.
