Alex Toole like many Australians is a “huge fan” of English singer, songwriter and guitarist Ed Sheeran.

However Toole, a young vocalist and acoustic guitarist from Sydney, has taken his love for Sheeran’s music to another level – by forming and leading a tribute show.

Now Toole’s Ed Sheeran Tribute Show is heading to Hexham and Nelson Bay.

Toole, a recent graduate from the Australian Institute of Music in Surry Hills, recreates an energetic and powerful interpretation of Sheeran’s songs, backed by experienced musicians Andrew Sampford (keyboard), Paul Toole (bass) and Adam Toole (drums).

Sampford, Paul and Adam have travelled Australia and the world in the Mo Award-winning Rock Show starring Jon English and the acclaimed Beatles show The Beatle Boys.

Additionally, the trio play festivals and receive national airplay through radio station Triple J with various independent bands.

All band members bring strong vocal harmonies to the Ed Sheeran Tribute Show.

Toole and his band aim to create an exciting, energised show, paying the utmost respect to Sheeran’s extensive catalogue of music.

Together the tribute act provide all the music to recreate Sheeran’s act – no backing tracks are used.
