Biography

Harry Styles (born 01.02.1994) Harry Styles is an English singer from the boyband One Direction.

Childhood: Harry Styles was born in Evesham, Worcestershire, England and grew up in the village of Holmes Chapel in Cheshire. His parents are Anne Cox and Des Styles but they divorced when he was 7. He attended Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School and had a job at the W. Mandeville Bakery in the village when he was 16 before auditioning for the UK TV singing competition 'The X Factor'.

Musical career: Harry Styles was first in a band called White Eskimo with lead guitarist Haydn Morris, bass guitarist Nick Clough and drummer Will Sweeny and with whom he won a Battle of the Bands competition. Among his influences are Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Foster the People, Coldplay and Kings of Leon. He auditioned for 'The X Factor' in 2010 as a solo artist but, after failing to make it to the Judges Houses round, he was put together with other solo candidates Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson to make a new band for the Groups category at the suggestion of one of the judges Nicole Scherzinger. Harry was the band member who put forward the name 'One Direction' which was agreeable to the other members. One Direction came third place in the competition but were subsequently signed to mentor Simon Cowell's Syco Records anyway. Since forming, One Direction has won two BRIT awards, three Teen Choice awards and broke a Guinness World Record as the first British group in US chart history to open at number one in the US with a debut album after the release of 'Up All Night'.

Personal Life:  Harry Styles has had various high profile relationships and is known for dating women older than him. In 2011, he dated 'The Xtra Factor' host Caroline Flack who is 15 years his senior. Flack received many death threats from die hard One Direction fans as a result. In 2012, he began dating country pop singer Taylor Swift even spending New Year's Eve together. However, they split in January 2013. Harry has more than thirty tattoos on his body.

Harry Styles Debut Solo Album Review Round-Up


Harry Styles

Earlier this week, former One Direction boybander Harry Styles released his self-titled debut solo album, bringing fans a collection of new material, following on from his former bandmate Zayn Malik's 2016 record 'Mind of Mine'. Including his recent single 'Sign Of The Times', Styles allows his voice to command the LP, drawing on some big name influences with his debut and making an impression on those who listen.

Zayn managed to snatch up some fantastic reviews upon his solo album's release, but how has Styles fared? He's certainly one of the more popular members of the 'X Factor'-formed band, but will that translate into solo success for the youngster?

Harry Styles - Harry Styles Album Review


I was hardly the right demographic for One Direction's oeuvre, so I was massively expecting, and perhaps hoping, to react to Harry's stylings with similar indifference, like that 'oh balls, here we go again' groan we all made when the recent election was called. But, damn his (lovely blue) eyes, he's turned out an eponymous debut album that's actually not half bad. 70s/80s-MOR-yacht rock though it may be (I'm sure the mid-size arena tour is already pencilled in), it's a credible attempt at shedding the 'boy' epithet, having shed the 'band' already, establishing his credentials as more grown up, more rounded - more 3D.

Harry Styles - Harry Styles Album Review

It strikes as a well-constructed collage of his favourite influences from bygone decades. Opener "Meet Me in the Hallway" typifies the recurring soundscapes of "Wish You Were Here"-era Pink Floyd. Brimful of ZZ Top, "Only Angel" gives us a moment of ponderous schlock, plucked straight out of the lyric recycling bin, that isn't an isolated incident on the album, lauding a girl who's a 'devil between the sheets'. Despite being a collaboration with Kid Harpoon, the composition process for "Sweet Creature" can't have gone much further than Styles and Harpoon playing the Beatles' "Blackbird" to each other, shrugging, then saying, 'Let's just do that'. It's not all uber-retro, though. As much as Rolling Stone mag lauds his 'Rod Stewart' vocals, he's much more Kelly Jones and sometimes Fran Healy, like on "From The Dining Table", sounding like a slower track from Travis' "The Man Who". "Carolina" cross-fertilises Beck and Stealer's Wheel ('steal' being the operative word when you catch onto the tune).

There's also that preposterous Harry Poppins video for "Sign of the Times", but the song itself couldn't be a stronger statement of intent - long (5.40), lushly arranged, soaring, emotive. Even its concept, that of a mother dying in childbirth, using her last five minutes to give her new-born vital life guidance, lands him on a different planet from dancing all night to the best song ever. "Meet Me In the Hallway" is also a boldly understated, brooding opening, carrying the theme of unsuccessful relationships that recurs many times thereafter. A couple of times, he seems like he might be over-sharing, or settling scores. Whereas "Kiwi" may not-too-cryptically evoke one ex-girlfriend, "Two Ghosts" has to be an answer to Taylor Swift's "Style". It's an understated Glen-Campbelly delight on an album where the efforts at tenderness succeed far more than the outbreaks of swagger.

Dunkirk Trailer


In one of the biggest military disasters in British history, 400,000 soldiers found themselves stranded on the beaches of Dunkirk in France in 1940 in the midst of World War II. Their journey was about releasing the allied France from the grip of the Germans, but when they find themselves surrounded by enemy forces, with nowhere left to hide their options become limited. Determined not to surrender to the Nazis, an incredible emergency evacuation begins as bomb after bomb is dropped on the fleeing men. The Royal Air Force and British Navy vessels rush to the aid of their trapped troops, as well as boats from brave civilians, and together they manage to save over 300,000 men from the terrifying attack in Operation Dynamo.
