We are talking about a multitalented man, Harry Styles, who is an English singer/song recorder and artist. The successful musician grew in popularity as 1/5th of a boyband, One Direction. Stay tuned and go through the rest of our article to find out more about his early, current life and background.
Harry Edward Styles’s birthdate was on the 1st February 1994 in Redditch, Worcestershire, England. His mother and father, Anne Cox and Desmond Styles went separate ways when he was a young boy. He was educated at Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School, where the musical journey began. He was a founder and frontman of a school band, “White Eskimo.”
A few years later, after taking his mother’s advice, the young artist decided to audition for the famous UK show, “The X-Factor”.” Not impressing the judges as an individualistic singer, one of the panel, Simon Cowell, saw something else for the singers future. He teamed up the future star with 4 other solo entrees. The young boys were Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Zayn Malik. They were to be “One Direction”,” a name chosen by our star. The group caught the eye and the ears of many viewers from the younger population despite only finishing 3rd in the TV show.
The following year, Cowell signed the group to his record label, “Syco Records.”
The boys signed the agreement worth 2 million pounds. Within a year, they had their number one album “Up All Night” ready to be brought out and in November 2011, which brought them great success. People were comparing the popularity to a similar level of the infamous Beatles. The group brought out five albums in total, all of them reaching the same success. They were, in fact, the first band ever to have their first four albums debut at number 1 on the Billboard 200 Chart. Before the end of One Direction, they earned themselves 7 BRIT Awards, 7 American Music Awards, 6 Billboard Music Awards, and 4 MTV Video Music Awards. Not a bad feat.
After the break of One Direction, with the band officially drawing to an end in January of 2016, the five singers went their separate ways and chased individualistic careers.
Pop icon created his record label, Erskine Records in May 2016, and as an individualistic pop performer, signed an agreement with Columbia Records in June 2016. A year later, his much-anticipated debut song “Sign Of The Times” was brought out in April 2017. It became number 1 on the UK singles chart, and the music clip for the track won him a Brit Award for British Video of the Year.
Releasing his self-titled debut record in May 2017, he left on his first promoting tour. The tour took him around the world selling out shows in North and South American, through-out Asia and Australia, then back home in the UK. It was time to start on album 2.
He won the nomination at the 2023 Brit Awards for British Male Solo Artist and British Album of the Year, and fans are eagerly awaiting more tour dates worldwide.
Over his career, the artist has been the origin of many headlines involving his celebrity love affairs. In the past, he was dating such celebrities such as UK journalist Caroline Flack, singer Taylor Swift, and model Camille Rowe.
