About Calvin Harris
Rocker Calvin Harris was born in Dumfried, Scotland, on January 17, 1984 as Adam Richard Wiles. He was musically inclined as a teen, and recorded his own demos right in his room. So wrapped up was he in his love for music, Harris became anti-social for a while, and his music career grew only slowly. In 2002, two songs (The Bongos and Brighter Days) were released on a label, after the owner of Xylophone Jones's Recordings, Tommy Sunshine, discovered him on MySpace. But his breakthrough wouldn't come until 2006, when he signed to Sony BMG. In June 2007, his debut album, I Created Disco, was released. It featured the tracks Vegas and The Girls, which both hit number 8 on U.K. pop charts. The following year Ready for the Weekend and I'm Not Alone made it to number one. He began a U.K. and U.S tour, and his single Dance Wiv Me was nominated for the Best British and the Best Male Artist awards at the Brit Awards. Late 2010, he released a live mix tape, L.E.D. Festival which he gave away free for a limited period. In 2012, he traveled as a supporting act with Rihanna's Loud tour, and in that same year released Bounce, a huge hit around the world. Amazingly, his solo album ranked number 12 on Billboard’s Hot 100 in the U.S. and won best electronic video at 2012 Video Music Awards. Harris also won Video of the Year for his collaboration of We Found Love with Rihanna. The album, 18 Months hit stores in October 2012 through Columbia Records, and was very successful. The self-made rocker has perfected his craft and given the best of his work to the pop world. We are looking forward to more of Calvin Harris in the future.
