Louis Tomlinson Starts Record Label, Signs Jack Walton
It is truly the beginning of the end for boyband One Direction. After Zayn Malik’s much publicized exit, Louis Tomlinson has now started his own label, backed by Sony and Simon Cowell.
Tomlinson has already signed The X Factor UK finalist Jack Walton as his first artist. He also plans to audition members of a girlband he is forming.
Does he still have time for One Direction? Probably not, though he will say that he does. But good on Louis for already thinking of his future as the complete 1D split is now inevitable.
Louis told The Sun: “This is something I’ve wanted to do for some time. To be given the opportunity to potentially give new artists a platform is an incredible feeling. I hope to sign some really exciting new artists down the line.”
