Skrillex Net Worth

Skrillex Net Worth $16 Million

From the lead singer of a post-hardcore rock band to being one of the most prolific producers in recent times, Sonny John Moore alias Skrillex has achieved a lot in a short period. Born in 1988, Skrillex is an American  songwriter and  a famed electronic musician. Moore grew up moving from school to school but ended up being home schooled due to the bullying he faced. He embraced the punk culture of East and South L.A as well as the electro club scene around his neighborhood.

In 2003, he joined the band From First to Last as the lead singer although he initially wanted to be a guitar player for the group. The band experienced some level of commercial success coupled with a string of successful tours but faced a setback when Moore had to undergo surgery to fix problems with his vocal chords. It was after the procedure that Moore expressed a desire to leave the band in favor of pursuing a solo career.

He started producing demos and releasing them on Myspace, and he embarked on a number of tours with several bands. He made his demos during these tours and packaged them as exclusive material. Moore took up the name Skrillex in 2008 in his productions and performances. He later embarked on a tour with Deadmau5 after being signed to his label.

His time as Skrillex is regarded as being his most successful with six Grammy Award wins and two nominations as well as one MTV Music Video Awards win and two nominations under his belt. He is credited with playing a part in the development of the dubstep genre in The United States, and his characteristic sound has been heard in several songs done by popular artistes in recent times. He is worth $16 million.
