Gotye is a great songwriter and multi-instrumentalist musician. Popular by his stage name Gotye, the talented artist was born in Belgium in 1980 as Wouter (Walter) Wally De Backer and moved to Australia when he was only two years old. Since childhood, Walter showed tremendous interest in music and learned piano and drums in school. During his teens, he formed a band named as ‘Downstares’ with three of his high school friends. They used to sing locally whenever they would get a chance. As high school ended, the members departed and went their own ways. One fine day, an elderly neighbor who had heard the group singing on various occasions, gave Walter his wife’s huge collection of old records. This proved very fruitful for the passionate singer who taught himself the singing skills by making use of the hundreds of compositions of various artists. In 2001, he recorded some samples on his own and sent them to various recording companies. Gotye received positive feedback from two of them, giving him confidence to follow his childhood dream to become a singer. Gotye tickets started to sell right after he released his debut album in 2003.
