One Direction's Louis Tomlinson Starting His Own Record Label

(Radio.com) Despite his busy schedule as a member of the world's biggest boy band, Louis Tomlinson of One Direction is putting on a new job hat: Tomlinson has just confirmed that he will be starting his own record label.

One Direction were initially signed by Simon Cowell, so it makes sense that Tomlinson's label will be an imprint of Simon Cowell's Syco label. As for the artists he'll represent, Billboard reports that Tomlinson already has his first signee: X Factor UK finalist Jack Walton.

"This is something I've wanted to do for some time," said Tomlinson in an interview with The Sun, via Billboard. "To be given the opportunity to potentially give new artists a platform is an incredible feeling." Read more here.
