Horan came into the public at the age of 16, after appearing on the hit show The X Factor. The young singer struggled in the competition until he was paired with four other lads to form the group One Direction.
Horan has cited a wide range of influences, although he is predominantly inspired by Canadian singer Michael Bublé. He's also stated that he's a fan of classic swing crooners like Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, whose influences can be heard in Horan's solo work.
Following One Direction's hiatus that began in late 2015, Horan has explored various solo avenues, eventually signing with Capitol Records in 2016. The singer's debut solo single, "This Town", was released a few months later, and quickly broke into the Billboard Top 100.
