Gary Barlow was raised with his older brother by his father, Colin Barlow, and his mother, Marjorie Barlow. At the age of 10, his parents bought him a keyboard, and soon he began to play his favorite songs. He attended Weaver Vale Primary School, after which he enrolled at Frodsham High School.
Gary’s musical career began when he was 15 years old, reaching the semi-finals in the BBC show “Pebble Mill At One” with the song “Let’s Pray For Christmas”. He was spotted by casting agent Niger Martin-Smith, who selected him to be the lead vocalist and songwriter in a boy band called Take That, together with Robbie Williams, Jason Orange, Howard Donald and Mark Owen. Since then, his career has only gone upwards, as well as his net worth.
The band signed to RCA Records, and its debut studio album “Take That & Party” came out in 1992, peaking at No. 2 on the UK charts. They became well-known through having a number of Top 40 hits, including such singles as “Could It Be Magic”, “Pray” and “Only Takes A Minute”, among others. In the following year was released their second album – “Everything Changes”, which was mostly based on Gary’s material and reached No. 1 on the UK charts, increasing his net worth by a large margin.
Soon after, they published their third album entitled “Nobody Else”, launching three No. 1 singles including “Back For Good”, which reached No. 7 on the US Billboard Hot 100. It was followed by the single “How Deep Is Your Love”, which became one of its best songs ever reaching No. 1 on several charts. However, the band split up in 1996, and didn’t reform, without Robbie Williams, until 2005, after the documentary film “Take That: For The Record”. Hence, they released four albums, including “Beautiful World” (2006), “Progress” (2010), “III” (2014), all of which achieved platinum status.
In 1996, Gary began to pursue further his career in the music industry as a solo artist, in that year releasing two No. 1 singles in the UK – “Love Won’t Wait” and “Forever Love”, which added a considerable amount to his net worth.

Further, he has now released three more albums – “Twelve Months, Eleven Days” (1999), “Sing” (2012), and “Since I Saw You Last” (2013).
Additionally, Gary has also written a number of songs for such musicians as Will Young, Charlotte Church, Westlife, etc. Besides that, in 2011 he began to appear in the TV show “The X Factor UK”, alongside Kelly Rowland, Tulisa Contostavlos, and Louis Walsh. All of these have had a huge influence on his net worth.
