Harry Styles – The Early Years
Born in 1994 in Redditch, Worcestershire, England, Harry Edward Styles is a pop star and actor. He is the son of Desmond “Des” Styles, a financier, and Anne Twist, a landlady. Styles moved to the village of Holmes Chapel in Cheshire with his older sister, Gemma, and his parents when he was young.
His parents divorced when he was seven years old. His mom remarried her business partner, John Cox, and the couple divorced a few years later. She later entered her third marriage with Robin Twist in 2013.
Styles has a stepbrother, Mike, and a stepsister, Amy. Robin Twist died from complications with cancer in 2017. Harry says he was supported by his parents during his aspirations of becoming a pop star in his early youth. The actor received a karaoke machine as a birthday present from his grandfather as a young boy. His first venture into music came from forming the band ‘White Eskimo’ with friends from school. The band entered a local ‘Battle of the Bands’ competition, winning the event with Harry as the lead singer in the group.
Harry got his big break in 2010 after his mother convinced him to compete in ‘X-Factor.’
Harry Styles – One Direction
After trying out for the seventh season of ‘X-Factor’ in 2010, Styles failed to impress the judges in the ‘solo’ category. During the show, he was grouped together with four other male solo contestants in the ‘groups’ category.
The boy band consisted of Harry performing alongside Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and Louis Tomlinson. The collective named themselves ‘One Direction.’ Styles is credited with naming the group. However, the boy band only landed third place during the competition.
Despite the third-place finish, the group gained huge popularity across the UK. In early 2011, ‘X-Factor’ judge, Simon Cowell, signed One Direction to his ‘Syco Records’ label, offering the group a £2 million ($2.2 million) contract.
The boy band released its debut studio album, ‘Up All Night, in late 2011. One Direction became the first UK boy band to achieve the status of number one on the US charts with a debut album. The group’s second studio production, ‘Take Me Home,’ was released a year later in late 2012, achieving similar success.
The band’s third studio album ‘Midnight Memories’ in November 2013, and ‘Four’ a year later in November 2014. One Direction is the first group in the US Billboard 200 chart history to see their first four albums debut in the top spot.
The band released their fifth and final studio album, ‘Made in the A.M.’ in late 2015, with Malik departing from the group before its production and release. One Direction is possibly the most successful boy band in UK history, winning seven American Music Awards, seven BRIT Awards, four MTV Video Music Awards, and six Billboard Music Awards.
