Ed Sheeran was once told that he'd never make it in the music industry unless he dyed his hair.
His manager, Stuart Camp, told the Straight Up podcast that his previous manager dropped him because “he wasn't going anywhere.”
Camp said, “He had to drop the looping pedal, dye his hair black and give up the rapping.”
Fortunately, Sheeran stayed true to who he was and continues to put out new music. According to Camp, the “Castle On The Hill” singer has been recording new material and will probably put out a record at this time next year.
