Niall Horan Biography (Wikipedia)
Niall James Horan (born 13 September 1993) is an Irish singer-songwriter and guitarist, best known as a member of the boy band One Direction. In 2010, Horan auditioned as a solo artist for the seventh series of the British televised singing competition The X Factor. He failed to progress to the "Boys" category at the "judges' houses", but after guest judge Nicole Scherzinger suggested that Niall join One Direction, with Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson, the group became a reality. The five-piece band made it to the final and finished in third place. Even though they did not win, One Direction was signed by Simon Cowell to a reported £2 million Syco record contract.
In his career as a member of One Direction he has co-written many songs, beginning with "Taken", "Everything About You", "Same Mistakes", "Back for You" and "Summer Love" from their debut albums Up All Night and Take Me Home. In the latter, he also played guitar. He continued to co-write, including the songs "Don't Forget Where You Belong", "Why Don't We Go There" and "Story of My Life" for the album Midnight Memories; "Night Changes", "Fool's Gold" and "Change Your Ticket" for the album Four; and "Wolves", "A.M.", "Temporary Fix" and "Never Enough" for the band's fifth album Made in the A.M. He released his first single as a solo artist, "This Town", in 2016.
