EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Breakout Brit Ed Sheeran Unplugged in Williamsburg

June 26th, 2012

British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran is a bona fide phenomenon. After crushing the charts abroad in 2011, Sheeran, 21, visited New York earlier this month to finally launch his debut album, +, in the States, culminating with a sold-out gig at Music Hall of Williamsburg. While his devoted fans waited in the rain for doors to open, The Bowery Presents Live slipped into the venue to watch him deliver an exclusive performance of “The A Team,” his breakout hit.

Afterward, the singer-songwriter sat down with us to talk about the thrill of Stateside success, whether he’ll ever play with a backing band and why he’s fond of being a solo artist.
