  • Alright, it’s me Ed Sheeran innit… I’m just sitting here, trying to write another

  • hit song, just generally trying to be, y'know, creative and all that. Thought I’d draw my life for you

  • guys while I’m waiting for some inspiration... This is just kind of what I do mostly, sit

  • around and wait for something to write about. I’m always writing songs, I’ve got too

  • many songs in fact, sometimes I just give them away. Like that One Direction song Little Things,

  • that was me. I’ve written some songs for Taylor Swift, Christina Perri and loads of others

  • as well. I’m just a nice bloke like that, I guess... But I can’t really think of anything to

  • write about now... I usually just write about the stuff around me…. like right now...

  • eh... I see fire, photographs, a lego house... But nah... probably nothing in those, probably not a single song in

  • any of them, I don’t know I’m just thinking out loud here. WAIT…. Ed youve done it

  • again!

  • Anyway, I was born in Halifax in the UK on February 17th 1991. My dad John was an

  • art curator and my mum Imogen? She was a jewelry designer. You can probably guess that music was a

  • big part of my childhood. I’ve got an older brother Matthew, growing up we both wanted

  • to be musicians. He’s a classical music composer now... and a bitter and resentful

  • Ed Sheeran tribute act. Just kidding, love you Bro! I started playing musical instruments

  • as soon as I could stand, piano, guitar, drums… I had plenty of time to get good at them too,

  • well I was a ginger kid with glasses who kept singing to himself... I didn’t exactly have friends

  • around me. One of the first concerts I went to was the Irish singer songwriter Damien

  • Rice when I was 11. I met him after the show and he told me I should start writing songs

  • of my own. The next day I did exactly that. Turned out to be good advice. I saw Damien recently

  • on my way to one of my sell out tours, while I was driving my convertible, he was busking

  • on a street corner. I threw him a couple of quid, which he seemed pleased about, but he was kind

  • of angry when he realized what a success I had become. I said I didn't order the Sweet

  • and Sour Rice! Get itDamien Rice. I’m just kidding, love you Damien! That’s just

  • one of my legendary Sheeran shenanigansand people say I’m boring.

  • I recorded my first EP The Orange Room when I was 14, it featured all the songs I had

  • written over the previous two years and was about all the trials and tribulations I had

  • faced in my life up to that pointit was mostly about girlsand being ginger. A

  • couple years later I moved to London to join the live music circuit, I did over 300 gigs

  • in one year. I was attracted to the bright lights of the big citybut they turned

  • out to be pretty annoying while I was trying to sleep rough after gigs. I used to play

  • a show and if I couldn’t find a couch to crash on I’d try and sleep on public transport,

  • before getting up and doing it all over again the next night. I uploaded some of my videos

  • to YouTube and eventually I got noticed by the English rapper Example, he really kickstarted

  • my career by inviting me to tour with him. In 2010 I bought a ticket to LA and started

  • to play open mic nights in the windy apple. Hollywood superstar Jamie Foxx heard me and

  • he invited me to stay at his house and use his recording studio. I kept releasing my

  • records independently and I was in the iTunes chart before I even had a label. You know,

  • like the way the music industry used to work before American Idol and X Factor and all that happened.

  • In 2011 I eventually signed with a record label and released my monster hit A Team which propelled

  • me into the music mainstream around the world. I’ve not looked back since, my albums ÷

  • and x have gone on to sell millions of copies. I’ve come a long way from sleeping rough in London,

  • now I’m kicking it with Elton John, Harry Styles, and you know youve

  • made it in America when you get the seal of approval from the most powerful person in

  • the free worldTaylor Swift. And no, before you ask, there’s nothing going on there.

  • Lonely old EdProbably for the best anyway, could you imagine if we broke upshe’d

  • write a sad breakup album, then I’d write a lonely breakup album. Then she’d write

  • a revengeful post post breakup album all about my breakup album…. We’d never be out of

  • the charts... I should really get on that actually.

  • When it comes to relationships it's been a pretty rocky road for poor old teddy bear.

  • I thought I found a special starry eyed someone, but it turned out she needed more than just

  • one D to satisfy her. He can have her, that's fine, I reckon she was only looking for a lover to burn anyway.

  • One of these days I’ll find somebodybut then what will I write songs about? I’ll

  • probably just stick to smoking and getting drunk for now, I’ve certainly enjoyed myself

  • so far. Sometimes maybe a little too muchwhich might explain why I’ve got a tattoo

  • of a Ketchup bottle. What else? Oh, I’ve won Brit Awards, an

  • MTV VMA award and two Ivor Novello Awards, but my prize possession?... my Nandos black

  • card. I also learnt how to play the violin in a day for the soundtrack to the Hobbit

  • movie. That was my Draw My Life, thanks for watching Sheerios, there's a whole lot of

  • good in those little O’s. Don’t forget to subscribe and click here to watch Taylor’s

  • Draw My Life which probably isn't as good...

Alright, it’s me Ed Sheeran innit… I’m just sitting here, trying to write another
