Internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter, beatboxer, and guitarist Ed Sheeran's eclectic blend of acoustic pop, folk, and hip-hop has catapulted him to the top of the charts. The multi-platinum selling artist has sold-out back-to-back headlining tours, which included a trio of shows at New York's legendary Madison Square Garden. In 2012, Sheeran toured North America as the opening act for Taylor Swift's The Red Tour, before releasing his second studio album entitled X (pronounced "multiply"), which has reached #1 on album charts across the globe, including in Canada, the U.S., and the U.K. Nominated for six GRAMMY awards, Sheeran recently won British Album of the Year and British Male Solo Artist at the 2015 BRIT AWARDS, and was named 2014's biggest-selling global male solo artist by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), outselling Sam Smith, Beyoncé, Coldplay, and many more.
