Ed Sheeran has given Irish singer Eoin Glackin the seal of approval today by tweeting him with some encouragement.
@eoinglackin thanks so much for the cd man, listening now, keep writing and keep smashing it— Ed Sheeran (@edsheeran) September 30, 2015
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.
@edsheeran Cheers Ed. Much appreciated. See you down the road. Great gig from Jamie too.— Eoin Glackin (@eoinglackin) September 30, 2015
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.
