English singer and songwriter Louis Tomlinson is from England. He became well-known when he joined the boy band One Direction. Before he tried out for the British music competition show The X Factor in 2010, he started out by acting in TV dramas.
After being eliminated as a solo performer, he was put with four other contestants to form One Direction, which went on to become one of the best-selling boy bands of all time.
After the group took a break in 2016, Tomlinson’s first solo single, “Just Hold On,” came out in December 2016. It got to number 2 on the UK Singles Chart and was given a platinum rating in the UK.
Tomlinson released “Back to You” with American singer Bebe Rexha and “Miss You” in 2017. Both songs were certified platinum in the US and UK. In the same year, he was on Debrett’s list of the most powerful people in the UK for 2017.
Tomlinson was a judge and a mentor for the “Boys” category on the 15th season of The X Factor in 2018. Because his student, Dalton Harris, won the show, he became the first former contestant to become the winning mentor.
Tomlinson released the singles “Two of Us,” “Kill My Mind,” “We Made It,” “Don’t Let It Break Your Heart,” and “Walls” the year after. These songs came out before his debut album, Walls, which came out in January 2020.

His parents, Johannah “Jay” Poulston and Troy Austin broke up when he was a young child. He is partly from Belgium. He doesn’t get along with his father.
He later took the last name of Mark Tomlinson, who was his stepfather at the time. He grew up with four younger half-sisters: Charlotte, Félicité, who lived with him from 2000 to 2019, and the twins’ Phoebe and Daisy, who were born when Poulston married Mark. Later, when Poulston married Dan Deakin, she had twins, Doris and Ernest, who were born in 2014. They are his other half-siblings. He also has a half-sister from his dad’s side named Georgia.
Tomlinson went to Doncaster’s Hayfield School and then Hall Cross School, which is now called Hall Cross Academy. He failed his first year of A levels at Hayfield School, so he had to transfer to Hall Cross School and start over.
He worked at a Vue movie theatre and as a waiter in the hospitality suites at the Doncaster Rovers football stadium. Tomlinson and two of his siblings all had small parts in the movie Fat Friends. He went to an acting school in Barnsley after making Fat Friends.
He had small roles in the dramas If I Had You on ITV and Waterloo Road on the BBC. At Hall Cross, Tomlinson was in a number of musicals, which helped him become more ambitious and determined. He tried out for The X Factor because he played the lead role of Danny Zuko in a musical production of Grease at Hall Cross.
Louis Tomlinson Career
In 2010, Louis Tomlinson tried out for the seventh season of The X Factor in front of the main judges Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh and guest judge Nicole Scherzinger. He sang “Hey, There, Delilah” by the Plain White T’s. The judges gave him three yeses, which sent him to Bootcamp.
At the end of the final Bootcamp stage of the competition in July 2010 at Wembley Arena in London, he didn’t make it to the “Boys” category. But after Scherzinger suggested it, he was put with Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, and Harry Styles to make a five-piece boy band. This got them into the “Groups” category at the judges’ houses, where Cowell was their mentor.
After that, the group got together for two weeks to practice and get to know each other. The name “One Direction” came from Harry Styles. One Direction sang an acoustic version of “Torn” by Natalie Imbruglia for their qualifying song at the judges’ homes.
This was also their first song as a group. Cowell chose to send them to the live shows and later said that their performance made him think that they were “confident, fun, like a group of friends, and kind of fearless as well.
Within the first four weeks of the live shows, Cowell’s last act in the competition was the group, which quickly became popular in the UK. One Direction came in third, and their song “Forever Young,” which would have been released if they had won The X Factor, was leaked on the internet right after the final.
Louis Tomlinson Music
Louis Tomlinson wrote more songs for One Direction than anyone else. He has songwriting credits on most of the later three albums, Midnight Memories, Four, and Made in the A.M., and on a total of 38 songs across the band’s discography, including six hit singles and two songs, “No Control” and “Home,” that fans made promotional videos for. Savan Kotecha says that Tomlinson “led the charge” in changing the sound of 1D’s music to be more mature.
Robbie Williams, The Fray, and Ed Sheeran were some of Tomlinson’s favorite artists when he was younger. In an interview with Now magazine, he said, “I’ve always liked Robbie. He is just so cheeky that he can do whatever he wants. His shows are out of this world.” Sheeran was “phenomenal,” he said.
Tomlinson’s first few singles as a solo artist were a mix of styles. He started with EDM and synthpop, then moved to a more rock sound. In an interview with BBC Music after “Miss You” came out, Tomlinson said that Arctic Monkeys and Oasis were big influences on the lyrics of his first album. He has also said that Sam Fender, Amy Winehouse, Catfish and the Bottlemen, and James have been important to him. He spoke up:
Louis Tomlinson Early life
The whole point of this album is that I don’t want to write songs that sound like they came from Hollywood and talk about some crazy love story that no one can understand. I’ve had enough of that… I grew up loving bands like the Arctic Monkeys and Oasis because I’m from the north. And it seems so natural the way they tell stories.
It’s real, it’s honest, and it gets right to the point. Now, any of the Arctic Monkeys would be upset if they heard me talk like this, but there is a way to use this kind of honest conversation in pop.
MTV News said in a review of “Kill My Mind” that Louis Tomlinson sounds like he was born to be a Britpop star. People have called his music “indie rock,” “soft rock,” “indie pop,” “Britpop,” “pop-punk,” “pop-rock,” and “pop.”
On March 4, 2017, a paparazzo and some aggressive fans waiting for the singer got into an argument at Los Angeles International Airport. Airport security took Tomlinson into custody and charged him with a misdemeanor. He posted bail soon after.
The case was supposedly over by April 2017, and the charges against Tomlinson were dropped because another paparazzo had taken video of the events soon after. In a statement to Rolling Stone, Tomlinson’s lawyer, Marty Singer, said, “The paparazzi provoked and caused the fight with Louis at the airport this morning. This is not the first or last time a paparazzi caused a fight with a famous person.
