In an extract from this article in the Daily Telegraph, pop music’s latest sensation Ed Sheeran talks about taking inspiration from Damien Rice.
He was taken to see Irish singer-songwriter Damien Rice play an intimate fan club gig at the age of 11, then bumped into the singer and his band in a bar after the show. “I had a little bit of a chat and kind of had an epiphany, like ’Wow, this is exactly what I want to do!’ I got home that night and wrote a whole bunch of songs. I remember one was called ’Typical Average Teen’. Yeah, I was one of those.”
You have probably heard this a million times already, but here is “The A Team” by Ed Sheeran.
