DID YOU KNOW?

WOUTER `Wally’ De Backer, also known professionally by his stage name Gotye, is a Belgian-Australian multi-instrumental musician and singer-songwriter. The name `Gotye’  is derived from `Gauthier’, the French equivalent of `Walter’ or `Wouter’.

Wouter De Backer was born on May 21, 1980, in Bruges and his music group is called The Basics. Formed by Goyte and Kris Schroeder in 2001, their style has been described as anything from `indie-pop’ to `rock’n’roll’ to ‘pop-rock’, though their records show they span a wide range of genres, including reggae, ska, country, and electro-pop. They are recognised as one of Australia’s `hardest-working bands’.
