Ed Sheeran began recording music in 2005, releasing multiple EPs in the UK but gaining no solid traction. In 2010 Sheeran bought a plane ticket to L.A. and began playing open mic nights. He was eventually noticed by Jamie Foxx. In 2011 the hit song “The A Team” was released in the UK and gained Sheeran European success. However, it wasn’t until 2012 when “The A Team” was released in the US, as well as touring with Taylor Swift that Sheeran became popular in America
