Niall Horan, born Niall James Horan, was born on September 13, 1993 in Mullingar, County Westmeath, Ireland. His mother is Maura Gallagher, a homemaker, and his father is Bobby Horan, a butcher. Niall was born as their second child, he has an older brother who is six years older. He was only five years old when his parents decided to separate, and the two boys moved between their parents for a long time, but later stayed with their father. His mother later remarried.

He began his studies at Coláiste Mhuire, a Christian school, where he was not a top student, and according to his teachers, he should have worked harder, but this never materialized. He showed a great interest in music at an early age, sang in the school choir, and also went into the acting field, as he played the main role in a play called Oliver.



Niall applied for the 7th series of the British X Factor in 2010, he went to the selection in Dublin with his family and performed one of Ne-Yo’s well-known songs, So Sick. At the competition, Katy Perry appeared on stage in front of a guest jury, and she enchanted the audience from the first minute. The jury also liked her performance, but Cheryl still gave her no, citing that she was still too young for the profession. The decision was in the hands of Katy, who gave her the missing yes and went on, but the singer warned her not to embarrass her. At the camp, Niall successfully took the obstacles, but this was not enough for the mentors and they told him that they could not imagine him solo. Finally, thanks to Nicole, the mentors decided to put her together with four other contestants: Zayn Malik, Harry Styles,

The audience took the band of young guys all the way to the 3rd step of the podium without a fight. On December 12, 2010, they made their last appearance on the show and performed the song Torn, but it was not enough for the viewers and so they did not make it to the finals. The winner of the series was Matt Cardle, and the runner-up was Rebecca Ferguson. Although they did not win the talent show, they became the most successful singers of the series.


After X-Factor, the boys signed with Simon’s label, Syco. They started working on their first LP in January 2011, which mostly took place in the States, in Los Angeles, but they also met the greats of the music scene in Stockholm and London. Finally, in November 2011, the disc was released, which was titled Up All Night. 

It reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 200 chart with 180,000 sales in its first week. After that, the band’s success was undeniable and their word spread like wildfire, thanks to which they gained more and more success. The band’s fans started teasing Niall that he had no talent, so he wasn’t the most popular member in the band, but his friends stood by him and didn’t let him down.

Four singles were released from the record, but the most popular and successful to this day is What Makes You Beautiful, which was released first.

Their second LP was released in 2012 and was titled Take Me Home. Compared to its predecessor, the disc was more successful and received more positive reviews. It reached number one in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and Ireland, among others. Three singles were released from the album, Live While We’re Young, which was a great success worldwide, Little Things and Kiss You written by Ed Sheeran.

During the making of the album, the boys went through several changes, Niall was the one who improved the most, because he learned to play the guitar, so he took over that role in the band and got more and more solos. The leading members of the band remained Harry Styles and Liam Payne.

After that, the boys got their first solo tour, and in the meantime, they filmed the documentary This Is Us directed by Morgan Spurlock. The film grossed over $30 million for the band in its first week.

The third disc was released under the title Midnight Memories on November 25, 2013. This album can be considered the band’s golden age. The boys not only went through a visual development, as there was also a huge development in their music, which was also noticed by the critics, and Rolling Stone called their latest work one of the best pop-rock records of the year. The disc’s first single was Best Son Ever, which also served as the theme song for the documentary This Is Us. Story of My Life was released as the second single, followed by the title track Midnight Memories, the fourth and final song from the album was You & I.

In 2014, they embarked on their second tour, which was called Where We Are, and which, like its predecessor, was also made into a documentary film, which debuted in cinemas in the fall of 2014. The support band for the tour was 5 Seconds of Summer, with whom Niall maintains a close relationship to this day. As part of the tour, they also had their first stadium performance, as they had the opportunity to perform in front of hundreds of thousands of people at several locations. After the tour, the boys published their first book, which was also titled Where We Are.

Their fourth LP was released under the title Four on November 17, 2014. Only two singles, Steal My Girl and Night Changes, were released from the disc, and this was also the band’s last LP as a 5-member band. The album was not really promoted by the guys, but it was a great success because the tickets for their stadium tour were sold out in minutes. As part of the On The Road tour, the guys performed in front of 50-80 thousand people every night.

At one stop on the tour, Zayn and Liam were involved in a major scandal, and the dispute became so heated that Malik flew back to the UK and two days later announced that he was leaving the band. The news was well received by fans and people in the music world, since the boys already made a smaller and bigger noise about this record that they will take a break for a certain period of time, so many did not understand why Zayn left for a year after the break before. The singer previously justified his departure by wanting a normal life, but this did not sound as authentic as he would have liked, because two months later he announced the news of his solo album. Zayn’s relationship with the members subsequently soured and many felt hurt.

The fifth and last LP of the renewed, now the four-member band was titled Made In The AM. It was already known when the album was released that the boys did not want to go on tour and did not care much about its promotion. They last performed as a band at the end of 2015, at the American Music Awards and at the finale of the British X Factor. Three singles were released from the disc. Drag Me Down was the most popular among them, but the song Perfect also did quite well on the charts. The third and last single was History, which the members also intended as a farewell. The guys stated that the break won’t last forever, they just need some time to spend separately.

Niall Horan Career

Niall started a solo career after the breakup of the band, just like his colleagues. While Louis founded a company, Harry Styles signed a solo album and filmed a movie, and Liam signed with Universal Music, Horan devoted the beginning of the year to his hobby, golf. Later, he negotiated with several labels, including Simon’s label, Syco, and Universal Music, and then announced that he had signed a contract with Capitol Records. His first single, This Town, was released on September 28, 2016, and he confirmed that he is also working on his first solo record. The former members of the band, apart from Zayn, supported him and promoted Niall’s first single on Twitter.

Niall revealed in an interview that he wants to tour solo and that fans can expect his first LP in the fall of 2016. Keeping his promise, he went on tour in August 2017, where he performed already completed but not yet released songs in addition to his previously known singles. 

The first stop of the tour was in Dublin, at the Olympia theater, where he revealed that his LP was titled Flicker, after which he named the tour. The disc was finally released worldwide on October 20, 2017. In addition to the undivided success of the album, he was able to take home several awards, including the statue for Best New Artist, which he won at the American Music Awards, as well as winning two categories at the iHeartRadio Music Awards.

2019 saw the release of more songs, Nice to Meet Ya and Put a Little Love on Me. His second LP was finally released on March 13, 2020 under the name Heartbreak Weather. Niall wanted to promote his new album as part of the Nice to Meet Ya tour. On April 3, 2020, Niall announced that the tour had been rescheduled to 2021 due to the coronavirus outbreak, and was eventually canceled, with no new dates announced to date. What is known about the upcoming tour is that its opening acts will be Lewis Capaldi, Fletcher and Maisie Peters.

Niall Horan Private Life

Niall is one of the most mysterious members of the band, as he has never revealed his private life to the public. His first serious girlfriend was Holly Scally. Their relationship could not withstand his growing fame, so they later went their separate ways. He has been linked to several women over the years, including Melissa Whitelaw, Ellie Goulding, Selena Gomez and Celine Helene Vandycke, but none of his relationships have been confirmed. Niall’s current girlfriend is Amelia Woolley. He currently spends his free time between Los Angeles and London with his beloved.
