What is Gotye's net worth? Gotye's net worth is $1.5 million dollars. Born in Bruges, Belgium, Gotye, also known as Wouter De Backer, grew up in Melbourne, Australia. He showed an early interest in, and aptitude for, music, and plays multiple instruments. He formed his first band, Downstares, while in high school. The group was popular in Melbourne, and his songwriting skills were especially praised. After the members went their separate ways post-graduation, he continued to record tracks by himself, and after doing some ambitious self-promotion, began to gain notice on the local college circuit, and with various independent radio stations. He also formed a side venture called, The Basics, with fellow musician, Kris Schroeder. He was finally offered a distribution deal in 2003, and since then his fame has continued to grow. He has received a number of ARIA Awards in Australia, and his song, "Somebody That I Used to Know", reached #1 on multiple music charts around the world. He is currently planning to appear at multiple summer music festivals and on television.
Wouter "Wally" De Backer (born 21 May 1980), also known professionally by his stage name Gotye (pronounced /'??ti.e?/), is a Belgian-Australian multi-instrumental musician and singer-songwriter. The name "Gotye" is derived from "Gauthier", the French equivalent of "Walter" or "Wouter". His voice has been compared to those of Sting and Peter Gabriel.
Gotye has released three studio albums independently and one album featuring remixes of tracks from his first two albums. He is a member of the Melbourne indie-pop trio The Basics, who have independently released three studio albums and numerous other titles since 2002. Gotye's 2011 single "Somebody That I Used to Know" reached Number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, making him the fifth Australian artist to do so and the second Belgian (after Soeur Sourire in 1963). He has won five ARIA Awards and received a nomination for an MTV EMA for Best Asia and Pacific Act. Gotye described himself as "less of a musician, more of a tinkerer."
Born in Bruges, Belgium, in 1980, De Backer moved to Australia with his family when he was two years old. They first resided in Sydney, New South Wales before settling in Montmorency, Victoria. His parents chose to use the English variation of his name, Walter, when enrolling him in school.
As a youth, De Backer displayed a passion for music, learning various instruments, most notably piano and drums. In his teens, De Backer formed the band Downstares with three of his high school friends, including Lucas Taranto (who still plays in his Gotye live shows). After high school, the members of Downstares went their separate ways, leaving De Backer with no musical outlet.
In 2001, his parents moved into a new home, leaving their old family house in Montmorency, Melbourne, so he could continue his studies. Two friends moved in with him and the house became affectionately known as The Frat House, where friends would regularly drop by and hang out. The first seeds of Gotye were planted when De
