Morten Harket net worth: Morten Harket is a Norwegian musician who has a net worth of $10 million dollars. Morten Harket was born in Kongsberg, Norway, and grew up in Asker, among a family of bakers. He began his music career singing for the blues band, Soldier Blue, in Norway, and then formed A-ha with fellow musicians, Paul Waaktaar-Savoy, and Magne Furuholmen in 1982. The band relocated to London, and released their first single in 1984. The song took multiple re-records, and a now iconic music video, to finally catch on with audiences, but the track, "Take On Me", has remained popular to this day. They went on to release nine studio albums and to tour constantly before disbanding in 2010. Their farewell concert at the Oslo Spektrum sold out in 2 hours. Morten Harket is known for his astonishing vocal range and choir-boy-like falsetto. He has released five solo studio albums, and has won multiple Norwegian music awards as a solo artist.
Morten Harket (born 14 September 1959) is a Norwegian musician, best known as the lead singer of the synthpop/rock band A-ha, which released nine studio albums and topped the charts in several countries after their breakthrough hit "Take on Me" in 1985. A-ha disbanded in 2010. Harket has also released five solo albums. Before joining A-ha in 1982, Harket had appeared on the Oslo club scene as the singer for blues outfit Soldier Blue.
The trio, composed of lead vocalist Harket, guitarist Paul Waaktaar-Savoy (PA?l Waaktaar until his marriage in 1991), and keyboardist Magne Furuholmen, formed in 1982, and left Norway for London in order to make a career in the music business. They chose the studio of musician, producer, and soon-to-be-manager, John Ratcliff, because it had a Space Invaders machine. John Ratcliff introduced the boys to his manager, Terry Slater, and, after a few meetings, A-ha had two managers. Terry Slater and John Ratcliff together formed T.J. Management. Ratcliff dealt with all the technical and musical aspects; Slater was the international business manager and liaison to Warner Brothers' head office. The band says the name A-ha comes from a title Paul contemplated giving to a song; he was dithering between the title "A-ha" and "A-hem". Morten was looking through Paul's notebook, and came across the name, which he liked, and immediately decided that was the right name.
In 1984, A-ha released their first single, "Take On Me", which became a hit only on the third attempt in 1985, after it had been re-recorded and accompanied by a music video directed by Steve Barron. The single's international success helped A-ha's debut album Hunting High and Low to sell over 10 million copies worldwide. Their second studio album was Scoundrel Days, followed by Stay on These Roads and East of the Sun, West of the Moon. The band then issued the commercially disappointing Memorial Beach, after which the band went on hiatus.
