Tim Bergling, better known by his stage name Avicii, was born in Stockholm, Sweden in September of 1989. Avicii realized very early in life that he had a passion for music and has said that he always knew that this was what he wanted to do. This young man’s big break in the music industry came when he was a mere 18 years old. Avicii made a remix of an old Commodore 64 video game called Lazy Jones. This recording caused such a buzz of popularity that it lead to his first recording contract with a record company named Strike! Recordings. Avicii’s first release was titled “Lazy Lace”.
Avicii was nominated for a Best Dance Recording Grammy for a hit tract he made with David Guetta called “Sunshine”. He began touring in 2010 and has been in countries the world over, playing for as much as half a million dollars per engagement. His most popular song to date is “Levels’, which features a sample of the Etta James 1962, hit song “Something’s Got a Hold on Me”. This song has since gone on to be remixed by notable persons in the world of electronic dance music including Noise Inc., Cazzette, and Skrillex.
On his 25th birthday, Avicii canceled all of his remaining performances of 2014 due to health concerns, although these concerns were not specified. He announced on September 9th, 2014, that he would release his new single “The Days” in the later part of 2014. This song was a collaboration between Robbie Williams and Avicii, and was released on October 3rd of 2014. In March of 2015, Avicii performed live at Australia’s Future Music Festival his upcoming single “Heaven”, which is collaboration with the frontman for Coldplay, Chris Martin, on vocals and the piano.
This very young and talented musical star has a current net worth of $54 million and there is nothing to stand in his way of becoming one of the biggest stars in the electronic music industry.
