Publisher's Summary

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 15. At 13 - then just a guitarist in a school rock band but today’s most successful solo star - he decided he would fly far higher than hometown fame. Within a year, he had recorded an album in his bedroom.

Best-selling 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 he 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!
