THE SUN: Louis spins off in new Direction 1D star Louis Tomlinson starts his own label

9:03 AMVera

I’VE always described LOUIS TOMLINSON as the behind-the-scenes businessman of ONE DIRECTION.
But the 23-year-old is taking it to a whole new level, becoming one of the world’s youngest music moguls. 
Louis is setting up his own record label, which will be launched this year with the full backing of Sony.
It will be an imprint of the Syco label run by mentor SIMON COWELL and his long-term right-hand man Sonny Takhar.
And this is no vanity project. Louis is already making serious moves to become an industry heavyweight.
His first signing was last year’s X Factor finalist JACK WALTON. His second will be the new girl band he is holding auditions for during downtime from 1D.
Last night Louis confirmed the latest news, telling me: “It’s absolutely great to be working with Syco on a label. This is something I’ve wanted to do for some time, and to be given the opportunity to potentially give new artists a platform is an incredible feeling.
“I hope to sign some really exciting artists down the line.”
Louis has developed his entrepreneurial side over the last couple of years and I’ve been the first to reveal details of his projects.
Last May, I told how he planned to buy his beloved Doncaster Rovers. Sadly, the deal collapsed — but that didn’t put Louis off.
He turned to music in January by setting up his own media company, 78 Productions Limited. Then he looked for fresh talent as a judge at Sony’s Be in the Band competition in March.
But his own record label takes his ambitions up a notch.
It’s no wonder there’s so much chatter in the industry about Louis replacing LOUIS WALSH as an X Factor judge.
That’s a no-go this year because of his 1D commitments but I wouldn’t rule out him appearing in 2016.
