The music industry is a very interesting thing and, over the years, we have seen many different genres of music and types of performers becoming popular and taking over the music industry for a certain period of time. At the moment, it would be fair to say that there are a lot of male solo artists who love to sing slow, soppy love songs, while playing an acoustic guitar.
One such star, who has become one of the biggest music stars in the industry at the moment, is the British singer and songwriter Ed Sheeran, who has had a string of hits over recent years. Ed is set to perform at Whelan's in Dublin at the weekend and the singer has reminisced about seeing Damien Rice there when he was younger, and how the fellow artist had a big influence on his career.
Sheeran explained, "It's amazing to come back to perform at a place that means so much to me personally. I was only about 11 or 12 years old when I saw Damien play at Whelan's, and that night literally changed my life. The time he spent talking with me after the show made all the difference. It inspired me in a way that I only hope to do for someone else."
Things must definitely be going well for Ed Sheeran at the moment, as it was also recently claimed that the singer has invested in a six bedroom house worth £895,000. According to the reports, the house is made up of different color bricks, much like a Lego House would be.
