“I’ve actually known her for 15 years. She used to go on tour with a guy named Jack Peñate.
My cousin was Jack’s drummer’s housemate and she used to open up for them when she was younger.
She used to sit on a stool with a bass guitar and sing, so I ended up watching her at these little, little, little shows all over” says Ed Sheeran.
“When she went and was successful, I was successful about three years later and we met and it’s really cool to have someone you’ve known for so long. I mean, I don’t know her super, super well, but you know, we’re both British and we have things in common, so yeah, she’s sweet”
Currently, Ed Sheeran celebrates the success of his latest album, “=”, while Adele prepares to release “30” for November 19th.
