Avicii Biography

Tim Bergling was born on 8 September 1989, in Stockholm, Sweden. As Avicii he is known as one of the most successful and popular contemporary DJs. What is more, Avicii is also a record producer, who has created many hits and in collaboration with several artists. What surprises the most is that Avicii is only 25 years old, yet his songs are already known all over the world. He is known for such songs as “Wake Me Up”, “Hey Brother”, “I Could Be the One”, “X You” and others. Avicii has been in the music industry for about 8 years and he already has been nominated for and has won different awards. Some of them include, American Music Award, Grammy Award, Echo Award, MTV Europe Music Award and others. As he is still very young, there is no doubt that soon we will hear more of his works.

Avicii Net Worth $85 Million

So how rich is Avicii? It is estimated that Avicii’s net worth is about $85 million, a really high sum of money for such a young person. The main source of this sum of money is, of course, his activities as a musician and producer. Avicii is a perfect example to all the young people in the world, that you can achieve a lot if you only work hard and try to follow your dreams.

Avicii became really interested in musicduring his teens. Soon he signed a contract with the record label called “Strike! Recordings”, and released his first work, entitled “Lazy Lace”. Later he released such songs as “Seek Bromance” and “Alcoholic”. The former one became famous not only in Sweden but in the United Kingdom, France, Belgium and other countries as well.

Avicii did not have to wait long before other record labels became interested in him and started suggesting collaborations. In 2010 he made a deal with the “EMI Music Publishing”, and in 2011 Avicii released the song that made him even more popular and recognizable in the music industry, called “Levels” and it soon reached the top in several European countries. This had a huge impact on the growth of Avicii’s net worth. In 2012 Avicci collaborated with another famous DJ, David Guetta. This collaboration meant a lot to Avicci and had a huge influence on his career. After the release of their song “Sunshine” other artists also showed an interest in collaborating with this young and talented DJ, who rapidly became a phenomenon in the music industry. Subsequently he has worked with such musicians as Nicky Romero, Mike Posner, Lenny Kravitz and others.

In 2013 Avicii released his first album, entitled “True”, which added a lot to Avicii’s net worth. One of the most famous songs in this album was “Wake Me Up”, which soon became one of the most popular hits of the year. Radio stations all over the world played this song constantly and there is probably no person who does not know this song by now. In 2014 Avicii announced that he was working on his new album, along with such musicians, as Jon Bon Jovi, Chris Martin, Wyclef Jean and others. There is no doubt that this future studio album will also become successful.

All in all, it can be said that Avicii is one of the best DJs in the music industry. Despite his success, Avicci still remains very generous and is involved in charitable activities. He and Ash Pournourti founded the organization called “House for Hunger”, which helps to prevent global hunger. It is clear that there is a bright future waiting for Avicci and we will probably soon hear more of his activities.

Quotes

#Quote
1I've tried plenty of telephones. I tried to get into the Samsung Galaxy and the Blackberry, but the iPhone is just too easy to use. The camera takes clear pictures and the phone itself looks great. Like all Apple products, it kind of just makes sense.
2I grew up listening to a lot of Ray Charles and '60s rock, thanks to my father, and then my brothers got me in to KISS and whatnot, so I guess that's where I got my first taste for music.
3I always used to travel without a passport case, and because of it I think I'm four passports in. I bought this small Tumi case to protect my new one, and it works really well, not just for protecting it but also for keeping credit cards and small stuff. I just throw it in my bag when I'm traveling, as opposed to stuffed in my pocket.
4I'm good at melody - I'll write the top-line melody and ideal words I want to go with it. But I'm not that good at writing lyrics. I bounce those back and forth with songwriters or someone who can sing.
5I've always been a producer - that's how I see myself first. The DJing came second as a way for me to be able to perform.
6I've always had a fascination with making your own music but never have been skilled enough to play the instrument, so to be able to make music without the ability was awesome.
7I travel with a bunch of battery packs because I don't always have time to charge my phone at the hotel room when I'm traveling. I always change them, so I never run out of battery.
8I have a hard time writing music when I'm on tour.
9I love finding out-of-the-box inspirations and blending them with what I've done in the past. And when I started to experiment with genres, it didn't sound forced. Maybe that's because it's all music that I listened to growing up, and it's all music that I love.
10There's always so much music around me now, it seems like everything has to be something with music, so in my spare time I try not to listen to anything. It's so hard for me to listen to something without trying to see a benefit in it: 'Maybe I'll make my own version of that track or maybe I'll do this or that.'
11Obviously there is stuff that I wouldn't play in a club that I play at festivals, and vice-versa, but my sets are still dominated largely by my own music. I think that's what makes me stand out a bit. My music is also festival- and club-friendly, so it generally works out well.
12I always just sit down at the piano and make the main hook - what I want the track to be about melodically - and then I'll build everything else around that. But growing up, I did not play any instruments.
13Lyrics are important, but it's hard, because English isn't my first language - although it feels like it is these days! I grew up with amazing melodies, so getting that right on a song has always been the key thing for me, but there's no reason why a great melody doesn't deserve great lyrics.
14I would never lay down a pre-programmed set and perform to a pre-mixed CD; I would never cheat my fans like that.
15I make sure to use both Twitter and Facebook a lot which helps me connect to the fans.
16When I started out, I was Avici with one i. But on MySpace, that name was taken.
17I love DJing, I do. I love everything that comes with it; it's fun and it's kind of glamorous.
18I think I am a pretty good judge of character in general and try to surround myself with the best people I can.
19House music originated in America, and it has always been around, but I guess it just got a tighter hold on Europe and other parts of the world.
20A lot of work and thinking goes into my DJing. I want the entire night to progress seamlessly and when I have to adapt the energy on the fly for the crowd on any given night, I can do so with harmonic mixes that I've practiced over and over again. I am far from the only DJ that does this and it's something I take pride in being able to do.
21Dance music is like a virus: it has affected so many different genres.
22When it comes to electronic music, I started listening to a lot of Daft Punk, way before I knew what house music was, and then progressed into a lot of Steve Angello, Eric Prydz, Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Laidback Luke.
23My dad has always been a big Ray Charles fan, and I've grown up listening to all kinds of music.
24A friend of mine told me a bunch of stuff on Buddhism and about Avicii being the lowest level of Buddhist hell, and it just sort of got stuck in my head. Later on when I went to setup a MySpace, I tried a bunch of names and they were all taken so I just kind of ended up with Avicii and then I got really attached to it.
25I've always worn a lot of Ralph Lauren, and plaid shirts in general have been a signature piece for me. With plaid, you can look super-relaxed or you can look a bit dressed up.
26I guess I think like deep inside, I know that it's like, it's a different kind of performing, it's not really... You're not performing like a guitar player or a singer is performing, you know what I mean? So it's weird to be in the same type setup as one of those. 'Cause I'm not really doing much, you know, like technically it's not that hard.
27I have my guy Semi who is my on the road - he's my personal trainer. He helps me out with training and stuff like that, and he's shown me a lot of things I can do on the road. We were trying to figure out something that I can do everywhere, like in my hotel room, so I don't have to have a gym.
28I don't really look at the charts at all. If anything, I try to out-do what I've done before. I try to make music that I like and I trust my own judgement with what will work with a wider audience. If you compare yourself to the charts, you lose perspective on what you're doing and why you're doing it.
29It's hard - some people get inspired by a feeling, but I'm mostly inspired by melodies.
30There's always haters, no matter what you're doing - whether they're complaining that everything you do sounds the same, or it's too different.
31People in Sweden are very conscious of what people are saying about you.
32I'm a DJ. I get the party started.
33If I wanted to make a quick buck, there's far easier ways of doing it. What I want is to provoke people. If you want a hit song, all you need to do is rewrite an old song. It might have been proven to work, but you won't be remembered the same way.
34For me there are two types of country: There's the shoot-yourself-in-the-head country, and then there's really good country music.
35I actually only started listening to house music around the time I started making it. I got hooked both to making music and to house music.
36Originality is definitely missing from EDM. There are people looking for it and exploring but I feel it's so big now it is just getting milked. House music is losing all its melody as it becomes more about how dirty the drop is and how energetic it is. It loses touch with what music really is.
37When I started working on electronic music, that was after the rave period. I haven't even seen that part of it that much.
38I have always been mainstream. It's so weird, because I don't see it as something negative at all. So many people see it as something negative.
