A global sensation in 2011, Gotye (Wouter De Backer) gained acclaim for "Someone I Used to Know." Born in Bruges, Belgium, on May 21, 1980, Wouter moved to Australia at two, residing first in Sydney and later in Melbourne's Montmorency suburb. Anglicizing his name to Walter, he showcased musical talent during school, mastering keyboards and drums. As a teenager, he formed Downstares with friends, and after university, Gotye delved into sample-based music, propelled by a significant LP collection. The versatile artist excels as a songwriter, composer, and multi-instrumentalist.
