Gotye Biography

Gotye born as Wouter De Backer, is a Belgian-born Australian multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter. Gotye grew up in Australia. In his youth, Gotye learned to play numerous musical instruments, including piano and drums. But it was after he began to experiment with electronic music, samples and found sounds that Wouter truly found his voice and his audience. Since taking on the stage name Gotye and releasing his first EP in 2001, his success has been meteoric, landing him at the top of record charts around the world.

He has released three studio albums independently and one album featuring remixes of tracks from his first two albums. He is a founding member of the Melbourne indie-pop trio The Basics, who have independently released four studio albums and numerous other titles since 2002. His voice has been compared to those of Peter Gabriel and Sting.

Gotye’s 2011 single “Somebody That I Used to Know” reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100, making him the fifth Australian-based artist to do so and the second born in Belgium. He has won five ARIA Awards and received a nomination for an MTV EMA for Best Asia and Pacific Act. On 10 February 2013, he won three Grammy Awards at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards Show: Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Somebody That I Used to Know” and Best Alternative Music Album for Making Mirrors. Gotye has said he sometimes feels “less of a musician, more of a tinkerer.”


Gotye was born on May 21, 1980, in Bruges, Belgium.
