Alex Pall is one half of the band, The Chainsmokers, and together with Andrew Taggart, they are making it a pint to separate themselves from other DJ’s in the industry, one track at a time. While other artists that make EDM music typically focus on bass thumping beats and drops that you seek out and remember for years to come, The Chainsmokers are leaving their mark by putting meaningful thoughts and feelings, accompanied by raw emotion into their music, and it’s working. With worldwide hits such as “Don’t let me down”, “Roses”, and their newest single, “Closer” it is clear that what they are doing is definitely working, and the fans love it.
Alex grew up as an aspiring DJ, and spent most of his time DJing around New York City, taking gigs wherever he could get them. While he did consider it a side job, it was truly more of a passion of his, that had slowly started to turn into a job. One day Alex found himself in an art gallery, and it was there that he had a sudden realization. Alex realized that he was no longer just passionate about dance music, but that it was quickly taking over his life. It was at that time that he decided he would give this a real chance, and see where it could take him, not as a side job anymore, but as a career. It didn’t take long for Alex’s manager at the time, to put him in touch with Andrew Taggart. Andrew moved down from Maine, Alex quit his job, and the rest is history.
So how did two people who never met before, start making music, and eventually come to be who now know as The Chainsmokers? Alex Pall will tell you that it came down to not only their commonality when it came to the music they liked, but primarily their drive and ambition to succeed. Andrew and Alex would work day in and day, typically from 9am to 7pm, with the goal of not only making music, but deciphering, and finding out who they were, as artists.
