Harry Styles signs up with music agent Jeffrey Azoff
Is one Direction singer Jeffrey Styles about to embark on a solo career, well many in the business think so, particularly as he has split with the agency that represents One Direction and teamed up with Jeffrey Azoff at CAA.
Along with other members of the band, 22 year old Styles has been under the guidance of Modest Management, when contacted spokesmen for Modest Management, Richard Griffiths and Harry Magee, commented to Billboard that they wished Harry the best of luck, saying that it had been a real pleasure working with him, a perfect gentleman, knowing that he would be in the best of hands with their good friend Jeffrey Azoff. They know that Jeffrey will look after Harry and look forward to sharing a glass of great wine with them both when next in Los Angeles.
It is, of course, speculation, but we know that along with his mates in the band One Direction, Harry, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne, are all enjoying a break from the band, but as always they are insisting that they will all be back together after they have had their break from the music scene. As he has said before Niall said: “We’re not breaking up. We’re literally taking time out to see our friends and see our family and reflect on what we’ve done over the last few years. ” Louis adding that they fully intend to come back. He went on: “We’ve had a very intense couple of years so we’re just going to have a little bit of breathing time and spend that with our families. I don’t think anyone could keep this pace up forever so I think it’s the most healthy and constructive thing for all of us.”
If this is the case then, why would one band member split from the group’s management team, it poses questions that no doubt time will answer.
