Calvin Harris was born Adam Richard Wiles on January 17, 1984 in Dumfries, Scotland, as the youngest son of biochemist David Wiles and his wife Pamela.
He attended the ‘Dumfries High School’ while growing up in Dumfries with his older brother, Edward, and older sister, Sophie. He became interested in electronic music as a teenager and began recording bedroom demos in 1999.
In 2002, he released two songs through the Prima Facie label. Following a brief and unsuccessful stint in London, he returned to Dumfries and produced solo recordings at home, which he posted on his ‘Myspace’ page.
Gradually, he gained attention on Myspace and caught the attention of talent booker Mark Gillespie, who signed Harris to his newly formed company.
He signed contracts with ‘Sony BMG,’ ‘EMI,’ and ‘Three Six Zero Group’ in 2006. Later that year, he created a remix of the English-Canadian girl group ‘All Saints” single ‘Rock Steady.’
On June 15, 2007, Columbia Records released his first studio album, ‘I Created Disco.’ He wrote, produced, and performed all 14 tracks on his own. It debuted at #8 on the UK Albums Chart and quickly rose to the top of the UK Dance Albums Chart. On May 23, 2008, the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) awarded it gold certification.
His collaboration with rapper Dizzee Rascal saw him produce and sing the hook to the latter’s song ‘Dance with Me.’ The single, which was released on June 22, 2008, climbed to the top of the UK Singles Chart, where it remained for four weeks.
‘Columbia Records’ released his second studio album, ‘Ready for the Weekend,’ on August 14, 2009, which debuted at #I on the UK Albums Charts. On 11 of the 14 tracks, he wrote, sang, and produced.
On August 23, 2009, he continued his successful collaboration with Dizzee Rascal, for which he produced the latter’s single ‘Holiday.’ The song, which he wrote for the girl group ‘The Saturdays’ but was rejected by them, topped the UK Singles Chart.
‘I’m Not Alone,’ the lead single from ‘Ready for the Weekend,’ debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart. The album was certified gold by the BPI. Because of the song’s apparent similarity to Chris Brown’s hit single “Yeah 3x,” which was released in October 2010, Harris was given writing credit for the latter.
‘You Used to Hold Me,’ the fourth and final single from ‘Ready for the Weekend,’ released on February 8, 2010, became his final song as a regular singer for his own efforts. He began focusing more on producing music in 2011, with guest singers contributing vocals to his songs.
During this time, he also decided to stop performing in live shows and left the band with which he was associated as lead vocalist. Moving forward, he released numerous remixes, including those of Mr Hudson’s ‘Supernova,’ Katy Perry’s ‘Waking Up in Vegas,’ and Shakira’s ‘She Wolf.’
Meanwhile, in March 2010, he established the record label ‘Fly Eye Records,’ which later partnered with Sony/ATV Music Publishing.
‘Feel So Close,’ the second single from his third studio album, ’18 Months,’ was released on August 19, 2011, with the album following on October 26, 2012. The song not only marked his return to singing, but also his debut solo effort, reaching #12 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and debuting at #2 on the UK Singles Chart.
During the European leg of Barbadian recording artist Rihanna’s third world concert tour, he served as a support act. He went on to write and produce the song ‘We Found Love,’ which he also featured in, as well as co-write and co-produce the song ‘Where Have You Been,’ both for Rihanna’s sixth studio album, ‘Talk That Talk’ (2011).
His song ‘We Found Love’ was also included in his album ’18 Months.’ The song reached the top of several charts around the world, including the US Rhythmic (Billboard), UK Singles, and US Billboard Hot 100, where it remained for ten weeks.
‘We Found Love’ was his first number-one hit in the United States. It later ranked #24 on the Billboard Hot 100’s all-time top hundred songs chart. It received several gold and platinum certifications, including nine platinum from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and two platinum from the United Kingdom (BPI).
His third studio album, ’18 Months,’ which focused on an electro house style rather than his usual nu disco-style, debuted at #1 on the UK Albums Chart for the second time in a row.
All eight singles from ’18 Months’ and ‘We Found Love’ with Rihanna charted in the top ten of the UK Singles Chart, making it the first album in history to produce nine top ten singles. As a result, he broke Michael Jackson’s previous record.
While ’18 Months’ was nominated for Best Dance/Electronica Album at the 55th and 56th Grammy Awards, two of its songs, ‘Let’s Go’ and ‘Sweet Nothing,’ were nominated for Best Dance Recording at the 55th and 56th Grammy Awards, respectively.
He became the first exclusive resident DJ of the renowned hospitality group, the ‘Hakkasan Group,’ in Las Vegas in February 2013, and the partnership was extended for another three years in January 2015.
He received the prestigious Ivor Novello Awards in the category of ‘Songwriter of the Year’ in May 2013, which he described as “easily the greatest achievement of my entire life.”
His fourth studio album, ‘Motion,’ was released on October 31, 2014, and featured collaborations with DJs such as Firebeatz and R3hab, vocalists such as John Newman and Gwen Stefani, and groups such as Hurts, among others.
While ‘Motion’ debuted at number two on the UK Albums Chart and number five on the US Billboard 200, its first three singles, ‘Under Control,’ ‘Summer,’ and ‘Blame,’ topped the UK Singles Chart.
On March 30, 2015, he was named co-owner of the subscription-based music streaming service ‘Tidal.’ That year, for the third year in a row, he topped the list of highest-paid DJs.
He has also worked on tracks for advertising campaigns for ‘Coca-Cola’ and ‘Kia Motors,’ as well as featured for brands such as ‘Pepsi’ and ‘Emporio Armani.’ Harris has participated in numerous charity events over the years.
He released “I Found You,” a collaboration with Benny Blanco, in November 2018.
His next single, “Giant,” a collaboration with English singer Rag’n’Bone Man, was released in January 2019 and reached the Top 10 in several countries, including the U.K. In August and September of the same year, Harris was booked for a weekly Friday DJ residency at Ushuaa Ibiza for six weeks.
