Ed Sheeran’s Debut Album

I was lucky enough to work on the debut album “+” from Ed Sheeran, engineering on the single “You Need Me, I Don’t Need You,” produced by Charlie Hugall.

Working with Charlie to track the drums was a great opportunity, having come from an engineering background himself we were able to discuss in depth exactly what sound he was after and how we should achieve it.
Later, while tracking vocals, I was able to see how Charlie interacted with Ed to harness the best elements of his performance.

Charlie’s technical understanding, combined with his easy going nature and natural creativity makes it easy to see why he is one of the UK’s fastest rising producers.
 
Shortly after the album tracking I worked with Ed and Charlie again on the B-Side of the track which featured Wretch 32 and Devlin and was filmed by SBTV. If you look (very) closely I have a brief cameo in the final video
