Before becoming an overnight sensation and one of the best-selling concert artists in the world, Ed Sheeran spent his days hustling the streets of London, playing as many gigs as possible in hopes of getting attention and selling his self-recorded EPs. His determination paid off in 2010 when he flew to Los Angeles and recorded his debut single The A Team, earning him a Grammy nomination.

Moving out with little to no money meant finding sleeping arrangements wasn’t always easy, which accounted for rough nights spent under an arch near Buckingham Palace. In 2009, Sheeran briefly attended the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford, where he became popular among the local performers and was invited to perform on SB.TV, a grime-based YouTube channel, subsequently growing his internet fan-base.
Sheeran continued to release three highly-anticipated albums with hits Sing, Don’t, Thinking Out Loud, Shape of You, and Castle on the Hill as well as writing hits for Justin Bieber and One Direction. Besides songwriting and being an exceptional musician, Sheeran has started acting in such films as The Bastard Executioner, Home and Away, and Game of Thrones.
