First time meeting Ed Sheraan
Jeremy Loops details how he was specially picked up, and travelled out into the countryside when he was meeting up with Ed Sheraan.
They worked at his home rather than a studio.
I didn't know much of Ed's music before then as much as everyone. Obviously, I was well aware of him and it wasn't that I wasn't a fan. It's just that I wasn't listening. I didn't have all the songs that were massive like parts of my life - it made me feel nervous to meet this hero.Jeremy Loops, singer-songwriter
Writing the album Heard You Got Love
Loops has worked with a number of renowned artists and high-end producers on the album, including the likes of Ed, Simone Felice and Eg White.
These guys are massive in their own right. They don't need to work with anyone they don't feel like. They are not passing through CVs. If they like what they hear... Normally it becomes because they have heard something about you.Jeremy Loops, singer-songwriter
All my writing happens in the dead of night. I'm a complete night owl by trade and it suits my life well.Jeremy Loops, singer-songwriter
And sometimes that's the way it is - you don't come out with a song, sometimes you come out with an amazing song and that's when you decide if you are going to take it forward.Jeremy Loops, singer-songwriter
Jeremy's album Heard You Got Love is available on all music streaming platforms.

**Jeremy Loops gets pranked by Anele Mdoda**
So, I start getting my guitar out, they leave me in this room and I'm like 'thankfully, I don't start picking my nose or something crazy you know'. You guys are filming me the whole time, secretly, and someone just jumps out. Like while I'm in the middle of a song, from under this table, I literally nearly had a heart attack.Jeremy Loops, singer-songwriter
