‘Calvin Harris: The $100 Million DJ’ biography set to hit shelves in October
Aside from his long digital, blog-documented history, Calvin Harris will soon receive his own bound and inked biography book. Long ago deemed one of the top superstar DJs of his time and with handfuls of singles littering the radio at any given time of the year, it’s no surprise that the ‘Electronic Cash King‘ will be one of the first dance music icons to have all his accolades documented and published. The synopsis suggests that the biography will be a story of Harris’s rags-to-riches rise, focusing on his early successes before he was the model, celebrity, and ‘$100 million DJ’ he is today.
The author and seasoned journalist Douglas Wight has also co-written a Leonardo DiCaprio biographic and helped to pen actress Emily Lloyd’s memoir, cementing Calvin Harris as a notable figure worthy of a full-length tell-all. “Calvin Harris: The $100 Million DJ” is available for pre-order on Amazon prior to its October release for $10.45.
He’s made $100 million, is the hottest DJ in the world and has worked with the pop royalty – but who is Calvin Harris? And how did he go from stacking shelves in his local supermarket to such astonishing global success? He’s come a long way from making music in his bedroom in his native Dumfries but since bursting onto the music scene with ‘Acceptable in the 80s’ in 2007, he has broken Michael Jackson’s record for most hits from one album, become the first British artist to have one billion plays on Spotify and turned hit-maker for stars like Kylie Minogue, Rihanna, Cheryl Cole and Dizzee Rascal. This is the astonishing story of Calvin Harris’s journey from struggling musician to international star, revealing what makes him tick, why he has the Midas touch, how he went from being a lanky kid with little self-confidence to a modelling deal with Armani and how he became a global megastar.
