The Chainsmoker’s Alex Pall and How it all Started

Like most successful musicians and artists, Alex Pall’s DJing life started out as a side gig. You might not know the name ‘Alex Pall’ but you have definitely heard of The Chainsmokers.

When Pall and the other half of the Chainsmokers, Andrew Taggart, first met their conversation was about how passionate they were about making music and making their dreams a reality. Ever since then the duo has continued to work hard to not only pay their bills but to make a lasting impact on their listeners.

Pall has emphasized that he and Taggart make it a point to be a part of the whole process in terms of their music. They help write the songs, produce the songs, and sometimes even sing them themselves (Their newest song Closer features Taggart)! The albums they produce are about their own lives and struggles and each song is intricately made to relate to one another and have purpose.

Their songs are made for any age, and any person. People from all around the world are listening to the Chainsmokers, and that’s all Pall and Taggart could ask for. They have already toured around the world more than two times!

The Chainsmokers have worked extremely hard to grow to where they are today and achieved it in an authentic way.

They are always working on keeping things exciting for their audience, especially at their live shows. With each new hit song comes a new set of light shows and atmosphere as they work to add new performance elements to their shows. Seeing them live once won’t be enough, because every time will be different!

Pall says they are always working to stay on the forefront of the Djing industry by setting themselves apart from their peers.

The Chainsmokers began as two guys who loved making music and has transformed into a worldwide sensation, and it doesn’t look like they are slowing down anytime soon!
