UK Tings: Ed Sheeran – Wayfaring Stranger
by Winston "Stone" Ford
More goodness from the UK. The name Ed Sheeran has been around for a minute across the pond, but I just got hip to the dude while reading about his self-produced LP topping the UK charts. If you’re familiar with the UK sound then you shouldn’t be surprised at the dude’s success. Most of the buzz circles around his debut album +, but what really struck me is this cover of Wayfaring Stranger. It really shows his range and depth.
Sheeran has been recording since 2004, but it was a one-way plane ticket to LA which got him in the good graces of one Jamie Foxx. His debut album + is catching fire in the UK and it’s only a matter of time before he crosses the pond.
