Hahaha oh no don't neg rep me for expressing my opinion! Please!
Do you write music? Or even play guitar? The dude has tons of talent but it really isn't that difficult to put together a song like his.
I've been trying for years to recreate the musical geniousness of Thom York and Radiohead. THAT is real talent, a talent that can't be duplicated. Ed Sheeran? I can't even tell you how many friends/ other artists sound just like him if not better.
All I'm trying to say is its harder to get noticed doing something that anyone can put together rather than doing something totally different and unique.
The dude is talented, but a group of guys creating musical fusion is MUCH more impressive and better sounding.
I honestly have no clue who the Ed Sheeran guy is, but if you sounded anymore like a douchey hipster I might have to punch you through the internet.
