Who Is Marshmello and How Much Is He Worth? – Facts About The DJ

Marshmello is currently regarded as one of the best DJs on the planet. One of his stand-out features has to be his signature mask used to disguise his identity. Forbes, after thorough research, revealed the identity of the unknown DJ to be Christopher Comstock. Marshmello was launched into limelight after he began creating remixes of highly-rated songs.

Dotcom, as he is fondly by his fans, is also a record producer and internet personality. Notable amongst his released songs are Friends, Happier, Silence, and Wolves. Interestingly, all of these songs have received multi-platinum certifications in many countries all over the world. As an internet personality, Marshmello operates a YouTube channel that has over 42 million active subscribers and about 8.3 billion views.

However, the personal life of the award-winning DJ still remains a mystery despite Forbes’s revelation. This has led many of his fans into trying to find out more about their favorite DJ. Learn more about Marshmello, details of his net worth, and some other facts about him below.

Details of Marshmello’s Personal Life

Christopher Comstock was born on May 19, 1992 in the U.S state of Pennsylvania. This is primarily the only information about his personal life in the public domain. Not much is known about his family, educational attainments, and family background.

On the career front, it is known that the talented DJ marked his entertainment debut on March 3, 2015 with the release of his song Wavez. Prior to the release of Wavez, Marshmello was everything but popular; but unknown to his doubters, the single was the first domino to fall in a series of dominoes in his rise to stardom.

Following the release of Wavez, Marshmello went on to release other follow-up singles which went on to become instant hits. As soon as his songs began gaining traction on the SoundCloud music platform, notable DJs in the game began offering their respects and support. Skrillex, a popular musician and DJ, was the first amongst many to offer his admiration of the talented DJ.

As time went by, Marshmello began to transition out of SoundCloud into mainstream entertainment. The widely acclaimed DJ then started performing at live shows and concerts. Marshmello is credited to have performed at top venues like Pomona and Pier 94 in New York. The Pennsylvania native also got an opportunity to ply his trade at the Miami Music Week which he grabbed with both hands.

Regarding the talented DJ’s relationship status, there is very little information available. This is not surprising for someone who prefers putting on a mask when interacting with the public. From what we were able to gather, Marshmello is reportedly in a relationship with a popular Instagram star named Kelsey Calemine.
