In September 2006, Gotye was nominated for an ARIA Award for best independent release for the album Like Drawing Blood.In 2007, De Backer won the ARIA for best male artist. Also, Mixed Blood debuted on the ARIA albums chart at No. Both of these entries came the first week after the ARIA Awards.The CDs were made in the same style as the first, with De Backer hand crafting each one and tenaciously chasing up every opportunity to get an audience for his work.Interest in the Gotye project was growing, and De Backer was eventually offered a distribution deal by the label company Creative Vibes for an album, which would essentially be a collection of the tracks from his three earlier releases.Like Drawing Blood has been certified Platinum in Australia for sales of over 70,000 copies.His first single, "Learnalilgivinanlovin", was released in August 2006.Around this time, Gotye met fellow singer-songwriter Kris Schroeder at a party in Mt Eliza, and the two began performing together under the name The Basics.They formed an enduring songwriting and performing partnership and became regulars on the live music scene, giving De Backer an outlet for his passion for live performance.
He took up work at a local library, while continuing to perform with The Basics and record his own Gotye tracks.
He has won five ARIA Awards and received a nomination for an MTV EMA for Best Asia and Pacific Act.
On 10 February 2013, he won three Grammy Awards at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards Show: Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for "Somebody That I Used to Know" and Best Alternative Music Album for Making Mirrors.
An elderly neighbour, having heard Downstares rehearsing over the years, gave his then-recently deceased wife's LP record collection to De Backer.
