Sheeran: A Biography Paperback – October 1, 2019 by Sean Smith (Author) The first comprehensive adult biography of the beloved, redheaded “Shape of You” songster, complete with exclusive interviews and all-new research! Grammy-award winner Ed Sheeran strikes chords in millions of listeners worldwide―a feat all the more staggering given that he couldn’t even carry a tune until the age of fifteen. At thirteen, then just a guitarist in a school rock band, today’s most successful solo star decided he would fly far higher than hometown fame. Within a year, he had recorded an album in his bedroom. Bestselling biographer Sean Smith traces the astonishing journey of the shy little English boy with a stammer who, avoiding flashy showmanship, grew up to become a global phenomenon. With compelling new research and interviews, Smith delivers the story of Sheeran’s remarkable parents, who supported their son’s dream long before it seemed achievable; the friends and mentors who encouraged his raw talent; and the lovers who inspired his most famous songs. Smith describes the setbacks Sheeran faced before his fortunes were transformed by Elton John’s management company, a record deal, and a song that changed everything…with some help from Taylor Swift. Now Sheeran has sold 150 million records worldwide, earned $432 million touring in 2018 alone, and broke records with his 2018 UK tour―but still made time to play for just 400 people at a charity night to raise money for the homeless last year. As this captivating book reveals, there’s no one quite like Ed. Product details Paperback: 320 pages Publisher: Diversion Books (October 1, 2019) Language: English
