Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran is one of the most popular and successful singers in the world today. He has sold over 150 million records worldwide, won four Grammy Awards, and performed at the 2012 Olympics closing ceremony. He is also known for his humble and down-to-earth personality, as well as his philanthropic work for various causes.

In this blog post, I will share some of the reasons why I admire Ed Sheeran and how he inspires me as a musician and a person. I will also give some examples of his songs that I think showcase his talent and creativity.

One of the reasons why I admire Ed Sheeran is his versatility as a singer-songwriter. He can write and perform songs in different genres, such as pop, folk, rock, hip-hop, and R&B. He can also play various instruments, such as guitar, piano, loop pedal, and drums. He often uses his loop pedal to create live loops of his vocals and guitar, which gives him a unique sound and allows him to perform solo on stage.

Some of his songs that demonstrate his versatility are:

  • The A Team: A haunting ballad about a drug-addicted prostitute that was inspired by his experience of performing at a homeless shelter. It was his debut single and became a huge hit worldwide.
  • Shape of You: A catchy pop song with elements of dancehall and tropical house that was co-written with Steve Mac and Johnny McDaid. It was the best-selling song of 2017 and broke several streaming records.
  • Thinking Out Loud: A romantic song with a soulful vibe that was co-written with Amy Wadge. It won two Grammy Awards for Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance.
  • Sing: A funky song with influences from Pharrell Williams and Justin Timberlake that was co-produced by Pharrell. It was the lead single from his second album x and became his first UK number one single.
  • Castle on the Hill: A nostalgic song about his childhood memories in Framlingham, Suffolk, where he grew up. It was co-written with Benny Blanco and produced by him and Ed Sheeran.
  • Galway Girl: A lively song that mixes Irish folk music with rap that was co-written with Beoga, an Irish folk band. It features Ed Sheeran singing in both English and Irish Gaelic.
