It was praise from one acoustic guitar player to another: Newton Faulkner has aimed some kind words in the direction of Ed Sheeran.

Speaking to The Sun about chart sucess, the Brick by Brick and Sugar in the Snow singer said: "There are a few of us singer/songwriters doing well at the moment. Ed Sheeran is great."

Famed guitar player Sheeran is the man behind such hits as Lego House, The A Team and Drunk.

His album, Plus, hit number one last year on UK shores – while Newton Faulkner's LP, Write It On Your Skin, is currently in the same position.

Pictures on The Sun website show Newton clutching his acoustic guitar in a cable car: according to the site, he played a very small gig in that location recently.

Tracks featured on Write It On Your Skin include Pulling Teeth, Dream Catch Me and Against The grain. Newton's last LP was Rebuilt By Humans.
