Ed Sheeran’s Story Told Through MTV’s ‘Nine Days and Nights’
I first heard of Ed a couple of years ago. One of my best friends is very musical, and she was really into his music. I don't even remember if I listened to what she told me to - if so I didn't give it enough time to make an impression one me.
Not long after that I started hearing 'The A Team,' everywhere. I distinctly remember hearing respected radio personalities sing his praises on the morning show, and after that I started paying attention.
'The A Team' is pretty on the surface, the melody and sound is delicate and flowery, but it is juxtaposed with dark lyrics about drugs and prostitution. Listen to it again. You'll find yourself singing along to a song that isn't as lovely as you at first thought. I was a little put off by it, but then he released 'Lego House.'
Then he went on tour with Taylor Swift last summer and released his album 'Multiply,' and I lost my mind. If Ed has grown on you like he has on me. Watch this video. Learn his story, you'll develop a different level of respect for his perseverance and tenacity to follow his dreams.
He even jokes that he makes, 'music for women to cry and eat ice cream to.'
