Rising Star Alfie Sheard
Releases Heartwarming Ode To A Lockdown Relationship
‘Wish You Missed Me More’ Out Now
Following a debut appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and his subsequent signing to global management company Interland Music (James Blunt, Grace Jones, Sky Ferreira), rising star Alfie Sheard is now releasing a new, heartfelt acoustic ballad, ‘Wish You Missed Me More’.
Produced by James New (Mumm-Ra, Saint Raymond, Pixx, Mullally, Lauren Aquilina) and with a pitch-perfect vocal-line and a hypnotic guitar, ‘Wish You Missed Me More’ is an ode to the struggles of maintaining a relationship during the pandemic. “I wrote ‘Wish You Missed Me More’ after a heartbreaking phone call with my girlfriend whilst we were stuck in quarantine 150 miles apart,” Alfie commented on the track. “To deal/cope with the pain of missing her, I flooded my days with constant work! I will never forget the moment she cried, ‘It’s all good saying that you love me, I just Wish You Missed Me More…’”
Originally hailing from Rotherham, England, Alfie Sheard picked up the guitar at age 11 and has been inseparable from it ever since. As a teenager, he shot to fame after a video of him busking in the streets of Doncaster went viral exceeding over 18M hits. An international hit, Ellen DeGeneres was among one of the people to recognise Alfie’s raw talent and jetted him off to the US to perform in front of millions on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Also recognising Alfie’s talent was none other than the king of the guitar pop song himself, Ed Sheeran, who gifted Alfie with one of his signed guitars on the show.
Following his stint as the support act for Young Voices on their 2018 UK arena tour, including London’s O2 Arena, Alfie has also just recently supported James Blunt, which included his London show at the Royal Albert Hall.
Alfie has already garnered a loyal fan base and is well on his way to becoming the UK’s next big star. Watch this space for new music soon!
