Edward "Ed" Sheeran，1991年2月17日出生于西约克郡，是大西洋唱片旗下的一位歌手同时也是一位创作人。2011年6月，他的首只单曲在The A Team空降英国单曲榜第三名。
Sheeran自幼就开始学习吉他，并且在高中时期就开始学习创作歌曲。在一次节目采访中他提到童年记忆，其中包括在无数次和父母去伦敦的途中听Van Morrison和在他11岁时和Damien Rice一起在爱尔兰看公演。
Sheeran在2005年开始录音，也在当年发行了他的首张EP The Orange Room。接着在2006年发行了自命名的专辑，在2007年发行了 Want Some? 专辑。2008年搬到伦敦参加公演，一开始在很小的场地演奏，即使观众只有5个人也仍然会每天练习和演奏。
在2009年，他参加了许多公演。Ed说他曾读到过一篇James Morrison的专访，里面提到James曾在1年里参加过200场公演。这让主流说唱艺人Example邀请他一起巡演。在2010年2月，Ed发行了他的第二张独立唱片 Loose Change 这张EP，正是这张专辑里面包含了他那首最脍炙人口的The A Team，这首歌的音乐录影带只花了20英镑。这也是他签约后首次发片。
2010年4月，他离开了以前的经纪公司，举目无亲来到了洛杉矶，一直在参加open mic nights。直到被Jamie Foxx发现并邀请他在接下来的日子里待在他家里录音。整个2010，Sheeran都通过YouTube获得了越来越多的瞩目，歌迷数目激增，甚至得到了《独立报》，英格兰国家队队长里奥•费迪南德和Elton John的看好。在2010年，他发行了多张EP，包括一张现场EP Ed Sheeran: Live at the Bedford 和一张他在威尔士与同样身为歌手和创作人的Amy Wadge合作的情歌合集 Songs I Wrote With Amy 。
2011年2月，Sheeran发行了他的最后一张独立EP No.5 Collaborations Project 。没有任何宣传，这张EP让Sheeran得到了主流的关注，第一天就卖出了7000多张，并且在iTunes榜上登上了第一名的宝座。
Sheeran的第一支音乐录影带 "You Need Me, I Don't Need You"在 YouTube 上取得了成功。他和Example合作的Nando's Skank在YouTube上的已有超过百万的浏览量。
2011年1月Sheeran签约了大西洋唱片公司，首先发行了一张名为No.5 Collaborations Project 的合集。2011年4月26日，Sheeran参加了一档名为Later...with Jools Holland的音乐节目，他在节目上演唱了"The A Team"。接着在2011年6月12日，"The A Team"在英国发行，这次发行是为了Sheeran即将发行的首张录音室专辑做准备。"The A Team"以第三名的成绩进入英国单曲榜，并且首周就卖出了超过58000张。这是2011年以来卖得最好的也是名次最高的处女碟。Sheeran宣布"You Need Me"会在2011年8月28日，作为专辑中的第二张单曲发行。
