soulful vocals with organic folk introspection and irresistible hip-hop
hooks, Ed Sheeran is a genuine global phenomenon. The 24-year-old
British singer-songwriter’s acclaimed
second full length album “x” (pronounced multiply) finds the 6x-GRAMMY
nominee collaborating with a stellar list of producers, including
multiple GRAMMY Award®-winners Pharrell Williams, Rick Rubin and Jeff
Bhasker, multiple GRAMMY Award®-nominee Benny Blanco,
Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid, and BRIT-Award nominee and longtime
collaborator Jake Gosling. The album has earned Sheeran a remarkable
amount of rapturous press attention, including cover stories in
Billboard and Parade, and the New York Times’ Sunday Arts & Leisure section as well as major feature profiles in
Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, and Time.  Sheeran launched “x” with a breakout performance on NBC’s “Saturday
Night Live,” followed by other high profile national television
appearances including “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” the famed
outdoor stage on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”, and NBC’s “The Voice”
season finale, “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and Toyota
Summer Concert Series in Rockefeller Plaza on “Today.”   Moreover, “x”
has drawn critical applause from all corners, with
USA Today hailing it in a four-and-a-half-starred rave as “the
rare album that satisfies expectations while simultaneously raising
them… As good as Sheeran was before, he’s even better now.”
“Mr. Sheeran is a gifted singer with a tender tone and a naturalistic way with storytelling,” declared the
New York Times, adding, “Though he may well be the most
prominent folk-minded singer in contemporary pop, he’s an open-eared
experimenter at core, and saddled with none of the modesty, false or
otherwise, that typically go with the folkie role.” “(Sheeran)
is a polyglot,” noted Time, “raised on folk, R&B,
hip-hop and rock in equal measure and comfortable incorporating each of
those genres into his compositions.”

2012 breakthrough debut album, “+,” entered the UK Albums Chart at #1
with the highest opening sales figures for a debut male solo artist
ever and is now certified 6x-platinum. Fueled by international
hit singles like “The A Team” and “Lego House,” “+” has enjoyed
multi-platinum, platinum, and gold sales in nine countries around the
world.  Here in the US, “The A Team” proved a blockbuster,
earning 2x-platinum certification from the RIAA as well as a GRAMMY®
Award nomination as “Song Of The Year.”  Sheeran also made a
record-breaking chart debut with the stateside release of “+,” which
entered the SoundScan/Billboard 200 at #5, becoming
the highest debut for a U.K. solo artist’s first full-length album,
since 2009.  Along with his three GRAMMY® nods – including the
prestigious “Best New Artist” – Sheeran has accrued an array of
distinguished international honors, spanning two BRIT Awards
(“Best Male Artist,” “Best Breakthrough Artist”) and the 2012 Ivor
Novello Award for “Best Song Musically and Lyrically.”

acclaimed as a captivating and creative live performer, Sheeran spent
much of the past two years traversing North America on back-to-back
sold-out headline tours, the latter
of which including a stop at the renowned Radio City Music Hall that
sold out in a matter of minutes.  Following a main support role on
Taylor Swift’s massively successful “RED Tour,” Sheeran returned to New
York City for a trio of sold-out headline shows
at the legendary Madison Square Garden to close out his incredible

honest songwriting and incredible live show has also connected with
millions through the small screen with countless high profile television
appearances including the 55th
Annual GRAMMY® Awards (performing “The A Team” accompanied by Sir
Elton John), the closing ceremonies of the 2012 Summer Olympics in
London, and as the youngest performer among the star-studded lineup on
CBS’ special “The Beatles:  The Night That Changed
America – A GRAMMY® Salute.”
