For those who are unfamiliar, Zedd is the professional name of Anton Zaslavski, who chose it because it is the first letter of his family name. Primarily, Zedd is famous for producing as well as performing electro house music, which blends electro, electro-pop, and other sources of inspiration into something that has proven to be popular with a wide range of people in a wide range of countries. However, it is important to note that Zedd isn't limited to a single kind of music, as shown by the fact that he has incorporated influences from others such as dupstep and classical music. Currently, while Zedd might not be as prominent as some of the other famous figures who can be found in the music world, he is nonetheless a significant presence in it. For proof, look no further than the fact that Celebrity Net Worth estimates that his current net worth is $35 million, though in this as in other cases, interested individuals shouldn't assume that to be accurate beyond the shadow of a doubt because of the inherent difficulties of estimating someone's wealth based on incomplete information.
How Did Zedd Reach His Current Net Worth?
Zedd was born in Saratov. For those who are curious, Saratov is a Russian river-port that is believed to have come into existence in the 16th century, which was when a Russian Tsar started up a number of settlements on the Volga River for the purpose of securing the boundaries of his state. There was a time when Saratov was home to a huge population of Volga Germans, who were invited to immigrate to Russia in the 18th century, where they were permitted to retain their German language as well as the rest of their German culture. Unfortunately, this is no longer the case because of a series of events in the 20th century, culminating with a wave of mass emigration to Germany in the 1980s
Regardless, while Zedd was born in Russia, he is Russian-German because his family moved to Kaiserslautern when he was still a child. There, he was raised, receiving classical training in music because of his parents, both of whom are musicians themselves. As a result, Zedd was capable of playing the piano by the age of four as well as capable of playing the drums by the age of twelve, which put him in an excellent position to start his music career by playing the drums in a German deathcore band.
Eventually, Zedd is known to have become interested in electronic music when he listened to a song by Justice, which is a partnership of two electronic musicians from France. As a result, Zedd was steered towards his current career, which has seen him achieving a number of remarkable successes so far. For example, there was the time in 2011 when his remix of Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" proved to be popular enough for it to be included in the special edition of the studio album of the same name. Likewise, there was the time in 2012 when Zedd released his debut studio album, which included a song called "Clarity" that remains his greatest success to date by going platinum. Besides these successes, it is interesting to note that they have made Zedd famous enough for him to collaborate with a wide range of parties on a wide range of music, with examples ranging from the time when he teamed up with Riot Games to create "Ignite" for the League of Legends World Championship to the time when he teamed up with National Geographic to create "One Strange Rock" for the mini-series of the same name.
Summed up, it is clear that Zedd has built up his net worth through his music as well as various music-related activities. Some examples include but are not limited to the sales of his singles, the sales of his albums, and the sales of his concerts, which continue to do well.
So far, Zedd's greatest success remains "Clarity." However, it is clear that he remains a very popular musician, as shown by his continuing releases in recent times. As a result, while his current net worth is estimated to be $35 million, it seems safe to say that it will continue to rise in the times to come.
