Ed Sheeran Announces Second Signing To Record Label... And It's An Irishman

Ed Sheeran has added a northern star to his record label in the form of Foy Vance.

Vance, a Co. Down native, has previously toured with Sheeran as a supporting act, and the pair have collaborated on various projects together. Vance joins Jamie Lawson, the first signing to Ed's new label, Gingerbread Records.

Last year, Sheeran released a cover of Vance's incredible track 'Make It Rain', which he recorded for the second last ever episode of Sons Of Anarchy.

The X hitmaker confirmed the news on his Twitter account moments ago:

Last year, the Londoner inked his love for Foy, well, kind of.

A few words on his right bicep as gaelige read: "nuair is gá dom fháil bhaile, is tú mo réalt eolais”, which means, “when I need to get home, you’re my guiding light".

The line is a lyric from Co. Down singer-songwriter, Foy Vance, and his track 'Guiding Light', which Sheeran features on.
