If you are a young adult or teenager, you surely wouldn’t forget listening to “closer” and “selfie” on repeat after they were released. Rings a bell right away? Well, the songs by Chainsmokers were so hit that almost every other person loved listening to them. You want to know the person behind the amazing generation and production of the song? It was Alex Pall, along with his partner Andrew Taggart. Let’s get to know what Alex Pall stated in the interview about his passion for music and how he hopped in.
Alex Pall’s hobby was DJing. He grew up doing it at different places in New York. While he was working on his career, he always used to be more inclined towards music. He was not only playing music as the side work, but he was truly passionate about it. Though for him it was scary to pursue something that was more fun than a job. But then a moment of realization made his life turn upside down, Alex was at an art gallery when he realized that music and dance were overwhelming him, not mere as a hobby but like a complete ignited passion. Alex wanted to give it a proper shot and so he went for it, his manager introduced him to Drew, he then quit his job, moved from Maine and started working over the first song. That was where the generation of the band Chainsmokers started.
Alex and drew got together every day, shared what they were working on, the relentless effort led them to what Chainsmokers is today. Alex and drew both shared the same kind of passion for music. Alex believes that people understand their music on a more profound level. For him, it’s a constant flight of self-discovery and knowing things better and better. Alex believes that by trying new things you stay in the loop and discover even greater things that you wouldn’t have even ever imagined of.
