You might have heard of Masked Wolf – he is now topping international charts, and just performed on Jimmy Fallon, and has seemingly become an overnight sensation.
But there’s a little more to the story!
Masked Wolf – or Harry Michael, was born and raised in suburban Sydney.
@maskedwolfmusicWhat you know about rolling down in the deep? ##MaskedWolf♬ Astronaut In The Ocean – Masked Wolf
He started exploring the rap genre from a young age, after his parents split up. He moved in with his Greek Orthodox grandparents as a teenager, and found himself stuck in an artist management deal that he couldn’t get out of.
This meant that he wasn’t able to release music for almost five years.
But, since then, and with a new manager, Michael released his first single, ‘Speed Racer’ in 2018, but it didn’t really go anywhere.
In 2020 his song ‘Astronaut in the Ocean’ started to appear on playlists everywhere and absolutely blew up online.
Harry first uploaded the song 18 months prior, while he was selling printer cartridges for a living.
And now Masked Wolf has blown up with more than 240k followers, and used in 3.7 Million TikTok videos.
