From Britpop to English folk rock, the UK has fostered some of the most prominent young musicians of our time. And they have gone on to make millions. Here is The Sunday Times’ top 10 richest musicians under 30 in the UK and Ireland.
#10 Marcus Mumford & Carey Mulligan – Just making the top 10 list is Mumford and Sons’ frontman Marcus Mumford along with his wife, Carey Mulligan. The two have a combined wealth of £13m ($23,750,000 CDN).
# 9 Leona Lewis – Singer/songwriter and philanthropist Leona Lewis is number 9 on the list with £13m ($23,750,000 CDN) of her own earnings.
#8 Louis Tomlinson – The oldest member of the boy band One Direction, 22-year-old Louis Tomlinson has a wealth of £14m ($25,575,000 CDN). Each member of the group has an equal share in their earnings.
#7 Harry Styles – At #7 is 20-year-old Harry Styles of One Direction. Raised in the Cheshire countryside, he has outgrown his humble roots, and is now worth £14m ($25,575,000 CDN).

#5 Zayn Malik – 21-year-old Zayn Malik of One Direction has managed to save up the same £14m ($25,575,000 CDN) as his bandmates. The fact that he stopped splurging on cigarettes might have something to do with it.
