Harry Styles, who was once a member of the worldwide sensational band One Direction, is currently taking the world by storm with his new, unique music and new-found career in acting with his breathtaking performance in Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk” . He has also become an inspiration to many through his bold words on current political world situations including the LGBTQ community and gun violence.
Harry Edward Styles was raised in Holmes Chapel, Cheshire, England with his older sister Gemma and their mother Anne Twist and father Desmond Styles. Although he lived a simple life there, he did face a fork in the road when his parents were divorced. Anne eventually remarried in 2013 a wonderful man, named Robin Twist, who unfortunately passed away this past year due to a battle with cancer.
Harry first dipped his toes into a career of music when he joined his very first band White Eskimo. Although they were only a highschool band and no more, they created lovely music that helped pave the way for Harry’s future career.
In 2010, Harry attended the United Kingdom’s X Factor auditions where he performed “Isn’t she Lovely” by Stevie Wonder. He made it a few rounds in when he and his soon-to-be band mates were seemingly eliminated. However, Simon Cowell, who is known for putting together some of the most successful artists and bands in the world, called Harry, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, and Louis Tomlinson back and formed what the world now knows and remembers as One Direction.
One Direction was and continues to be one of the best bands across the globe. Although they had the title of a stereotypical boy band, they quickly strayed away from the norm by writing most of their own music with actual meaning by the end of the band’s longevity.
Unfortunately, all One Direction fans were distraught to hear the news of their “hiatus” in 2015. All of the band members have come out with their own music at this point, but Harry did much more than just that.
Harry released his debut solo album “Harry Styles” last year. Harry defied everyone’s speculations by putting out an album that is although considered pop, more alternative rock than anything else. Diehard fans of Harry know how much Harry loves rock bands like Fleetwood Mac. With that being said, they love to see him put out music that he personally loves rather than just generic pop music for publicity and money. True Harry fans find this amazing and heartening.
Harry has embarked on his world tour these past few months and will be visiting Boston in less than a month from now. He continues to take the world by storm and inspire many people of all ages.
