Ed Sheeran Nails Stevie Wonder’s Master Blaster

New Years Eve saw one of 2014’s musical success stories appear on Jools Hollands annual Hootenanny, a musical extravaganza that sees in the NewYear.

Complete with horns, a big band, a dancing Father Time in the back and Jools on the piano, Sheeran took on Stevie Wonder’s “Master Blaster” and he totally nailed it.

With a strong reggae feel, Ed sang soulfully, even Ellie Goulding  was bopping around in the back! Watch Ed cover the jammin’ classic and totally nail it on New Year’s Eve:

Sheeran has been one of this years big hits, his second album ‘X’ has sold close to 2 Million copies and Sheeran became the most streamed artist on Spotify with over 860 million hits.  Sheeran also played a headline set on the pyramid stage at the iconic Glastonbury festival.  2015 looks set to be another huge year for Sheeran.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
