ED SHEERAN. THINKING OUT LOWDEN.
Ed returned to Paris to play a sold-out Accor Arena as part of his ongoing World tour! Fans heard Ed’s biggest hits including tracks from his latest album, “=”, where he played his Sheeran by Lowden guitars in front of hundreds of thousands.
Ed has a special love for these guitars having been given his first Lowden as a present from Snow Patrol’s Gary Lightbody in 2012. He wrote and recorded five songs for the ‘X’ album on this guitar, and later collaborated with Lowden Guitars to create the Sheeran by Lowden range. Ed’s love for these guitars is deeply rooted in his desire to make quality instruments accessible to his fans and aspiring musicians alike.

HISTORY OF LOWDEN.
As an instrument is personal to both player and maker, the guitar has a way of bringing the two together with sometimes surprising results.
Being a small, family-run business has allowed George Lowden to enjoy personal friendships with those who play his guitars, listening to their feedback to further his designs.
When Ed told Gary Lightbody (front man for Irish band Snow Patrol) that he wanted a Lowden guitar, Gary gave him his own original Lowden – an authentic Bushmills® from 2012 which Ed used to write five songs for his number one album ‘X’ (Multiply).
Gary asked George if he would make a guitar for him to give Ed as a present. George developed a unique small guitar for Ed that later became a new model of Lowden Guitars – ‘The Wee Lowden’.
George and Ed’s friendship developed further from their shared dream to give young, aspiring players access to a quality guitar; encouraging them to learn, progress and create music.
Sheeran by Lowden was born.
