Flypoet Spoken Word & Music Showcase – April 7, 2010.

A friend called me from the UK saying her friend would do well with my audience. I rarely put artists up without seeing them in person first but I took her enthusiasm to heart and said “what the heck!”. Ed Sheeran arrived in LA, we drove around, I showed him the sights and he MURDERED every stage we got him on!

    it also implies a certain, ahem, English confidence, to say "i'm British so do if for me"

  2. Isaac S says:

    this is truly a great moment…even if we grant Foxx's mis-factual hyperbole in his retelling (that Sheeran played a ukulele rather than guitar n' loop–which implies that Ed was less calculating and had less of a handle on his sound and appeal than he actually did); i.e., even with caveats, this is magical

    saw this guy on the road with devlin and thought he was star. good on him

    This is crazy i've had a similar experience where I saw the band Fun. and hadn't heard any of their singles and were the openers for Panic at the disco before their massive album and it was before they were grammy nominated literally thought they would be nobodies 5-6months later they were grammy award winners, with a very successful album. Though this is amazing because if I had walked away from that show I'd felt punk'd like this guy must be on the radio and famous already. No way someone just walking into the flypoet having this kind of talent is a nobody.
