Ed Sheeran’s touring mate, Ben Kweller, announced Monday (February 28th) that his son was killed in a car accident.
Kweller wrote on Instagram, “There’s no way that I can be typing this but I am…. Our son, Dorian Zev Kweller, was killed last night. He was only 16 and he was a true legend. Kindest, gentle soul, a friend to all. If you knew him, you know. We’ll never get over him as long as we’re here on earth. Please keep his spirit alive with your memories and the music he made.”
The teen kicked off his own music career in 2022 and his most recent release, “Hickeys,” dropped on February 24th.
Dorian is survived by his parents, Ben and Lizzy Kweller, and his younger brother Judah.
