Damon Albarn Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Damon Albarn is a musician, singer, songwriter, record producer and a multi-instrumentalist, born on 23rd March 1968, in Whitechapel, London, U.K. He is best known as the lead singer of alternative rock band “Blur”, and the co-founder, vocalist and songwriter of the virtual band “Gorillaz”.

Have you ever wondered how rich Damon Albarn is? According to authoritative research, it has been estimated that Damon Albarn’s overall net worth is $40 million, accumulated through a successful music career, which started in the late ‘80s. Since he is still very active in the entertainment industry, his net worth continues to grow.

Damon Albarn Net Worth $40 Million

Damon was born the oldest child in the family, and became interested in music at an early age; his parents had a very liberal approach to their children’s upbringing, so at the age of six, Albarn attended an Osmonds concert. He soon started playing multiple instruments including the guitar, piano and violin and was also interested in composing music of his own. One of his compositions won a heat in the nationwide “Young Composer of the Year” competition. He attended Stanway Comprehensive School, where he developed an interest in drama and started acting in various school plays. This is also where he met his future band colleague, guitarist Graham Coxon. For one year, Damon studied acting at the “East 15 Acting School” in Debden, but left and worked several part-time jobs to support himself.

However, he soon decided to take a music course at Goldsmiths College in South London, where he once again crossed roads with Coxon. Before launching his professional music career, Damon was involved in an odd synth-band “Two’s A Crowd” and later the “Circus”. The latter was formed by his college friend Coxon, and it was soon renamed to “Seymour” and later “Blur”. Their debut single “She’s So High” reached the UK Top 50, and the following “There’s No Other Way” reached the Top Ten. The band went on to release eight more albums, while gradually changing their style from initial baggy beats and Madchester scene to traditional pop sound. The 1994 “Parklife” album could be considered as band’s most successful as it made them the most popular and influential group in England at the time, and considerably boosted Damon’s net worth.

During the mid ‘90s, Albarn spent a lot of time preparing his solo debut “Closet Romantic”, which was released as a part of the soundtrack for the “Trainspotting” movie. In 2000, Damon formed his highly successful virtual hip-hop group “Gorillaz”, which has released another five albums so far. The band has received several awards such as Maximum Vision Award, Best Modern Rock New Artist Clip, and Best Rap/Hip-Hop New Artist Clip, among numerous other nominations, adding further to Damon’s net worth.

Other than his two bands, Albarn also has a notable solo career. He has released one solo album, one live album and one compilation of EP demos., but has collaborated with Malian musicians like Afel Bocoum, British supergroups “The Bad & the Queen” and “Rocketjuice & the Moon” and XL Recordings co-founder Richard Russel.

When it comes to his private life, Albarn had a long-standing relationship with Justine Frischmann, the frontwoman of “Elastica” during the ‘90s but the pair split up in 1998. He has also had a relationship with Suzi Winstanley, with whom he has a child. Damon has been an active supporter of various charity organizations and is known both for his philanthropy and anti-war politics.
