Ed Sheeran launches record label called Gingerbread

English singer-songwriter and musician, Ed Sheeran has been on the radar since early 2011 when he released an independent extended play which caught the attention of Elton John and Jamie Foxx.

Since rising to fame he’s released 2 studio albums, won 2 Brit Awards in 2012, appeared on Taylor Swift‘s album Red, sang The A Team with Elton John at the Grammy’s in 2013, sold out 3 shows at Madison Square Garden, his album x won the Brit Award for British Album of the Year this year and a hell of a lot more.

Well, Ed has one more thing to add to his list, he just launched his record label and the name of it is just perfect; Gingerbread.

Jamie Lawson is the labels first singing. Ed said the following “I’m going to focus on this when I’m on tour next year. Hopefully the acts will be up and running by the time I take time off.”

The Thinking Out Loud singer said he decided to back new acts after he discovered British folk rock band Passenger (which btw released their latest song and video Travelling Alone just yesterday!).

Wishing the Gingerbread man all the best with his label and I’m sure we’ll discover a lot of talented artists very soon!
