[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Gotye[/lastfm] (GO-tee-ay) is the stage name of Belgian/Australian artist Wouter De Backer. “Wouter” is Dutch for “Walter.” He always displayed a knack for music, but his journey really began when an elderly neighbor passed away and gave all of her vinyl albums to him because of his love of music. He and other friends built their own recording studio and started making music.
Gotye has had huge success in Australia, and finally broke his music in Europe in the last couple of years. His first American television appearance was this year on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” where he performed his current hit “Somebody That I Used To Know,” from his third album, “Making Mirrors.” Its “different” sound and powerful lyrics make it one of those songs that makes you say, “who was THAT?”
