Ed Sheeran tweets up and coming Irish star and tells him to ‘keep smashing it’

Ed Sheeran has given Irish singer Eoin Glackin the seal of approval today by tweeting him with some encouragement.

Eoin, who 's from Dublin, simply handed the ginger singer his CD after meeting him at a Jamie Lawson gig in New York City.

Little did the up and coming star think Sheeran would actually listen to it, not to mind love it.

Ed has had a great reputation for discovering up and coming stars, so much so it was the basics behind creating his record label, Gingerbread.

"The first time I properly thought about it was when I took Passenger on tour for two years. I took him into my record company and played them the record but they didn’t get it. Then I was too busy on my own stuff and I let it slide,” he added at the time his label launched.

"Then he had a worldwide number one hit. After that, everyone was like, 'Maybe Ed does know what he's talking about'."

Our very own Hozier also gives Ed credit for his super stardom.

Give Eoin a listen here:
