It's good to have friends in high places: Ed Sheeran has signed touring buddy Foy Vance to his Gingerbread Man Records label, marking the second signing for Sheeran after the smashing success of his first signee Jamie Lawson, whose album debuted at No. 1 in the UK this past October.
Sheeran launched Gingerbread Man under Atlantic Records in August along with an accompanying YouTube channel where he could post videos of Gingerbread Man artists. The surprise success of Lawson's self-titled album proved that Sheeran was not only a brilliant artist, but businessman as well. He took to Twitter this morning to announce the newest addition to his roster, calling Vance "one of my all time favourite artists and inspirations."
