Favorites is our recurring video series on the personal preferences of the pop artists who inspire us. Because the artists we love love stuff too.
Ed Sheeran may be the next big thing, but to meet him you wouldn’t necessarily know it. He’s charming, witty and as approachable as an old friend from childhood. So it’s no surprise that the modest British boy wonder is earning high praise on both sides of the pond for his spoken-word accented tunes, which he’ll showcase at SXSW this week.
We sat down with the flame-haired singer-songwriter recently to get to know him on a whole new level. You’ll be surprised how awesomely real Sheeran can keep it when it comes to things like date activities, TV shows and the films he digs. Watch the video below to learn more about the things he thinks are tops.
