Music Monday has returned

SO SO SO SO SORRY! it has been so long since I posted but I have had a HECTIC couple of months. I graduated from college, moved home and started a fantastic new job! But I vow to do my very best to get my blog up and running again, as you can see I did some updating which I am very happy with, I figure new chapter of my life, new blog theme 🙂 Let’s get on with it then shall we!
A few weeks ago I had the great pleasure of going to see Taylor Swift play at the Rogers Center here in Toronto and it was an unbelievable show, Taylor Swift has amazing stage presence and is great at connecting with the audience, having been a Taylor Swift fan for years I was so jazzed to see her and she did not disappoint, one of the best concerts I’ve been to in a while. But, her opening act is the person I’m going to be blogging about today because I was blown away by his performance.
Ed Sheeran is someone I had heard of before, and of course I know his most popular songs like ‘The A team’ but I had never really taken the time to sit down and listen to his album and I’m a little disappointed in myself for that because after watching him live I wish I could say I had been able to sing along with all of the other great songs that he played. I was entranced during his set, he has so much energy and charisma that it’s hard to look away from this adorable ginger while he’s playing.
If you’ve never heard of Ed Sheeran, he’s a British singer-song writer who became extremely popular in North America in 2012, he’s won Brit’s and performed with Elton John, needless to say his fame escalated extremely quickly, and after watching him play I can absolutely see why.
My favourite thing about his set is that he uses something called a “loop” which is a machine capable of recording a chord progression or voice riff and then playing it back as many times as you want, and it’s all controlled with a foot pedal. I was so impressed by it! And it made his set that much more audience friendly to see him playing his music in such a unique way. If you haven’t heard of him or listened to him I would absolutely recommend that you do because Ed Sheeran is a great artist and I am happy to say I have officially added his music to my itunes.
