You may be familiar with the name Chainsmokers. Songs like “Closer” and “Something Just Like This” probably reached your ears over the course of the last years. A name that you may recognize if you’re a big Chainsmokers fan is Alex Pall.
Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart make up the DJ duo who recently started to share their voices with fans. While most of their music was largely made up of their technical talent in producing music, they used to depend on the vocals of other artists. Now they’re showing that they had it within them all along.
Alex Pall started out while working at an art gallery. It was during this time that he realized his passion truly lay in the realm of music, and more specifically, music that makes you want to move. He then met Taggart and that’s when all the Chainsmokers magic began.
Taggart himself had always had a passion for DJ’ing and music and was trying to find the right fit. When he was referred to Alex, he took the opportunity and the two haven’t stopped making music together yet.
The pair clicked on their shared desire to make something out of themselves in the music industry, as well as having always been passionate about music as children. The fact that they also had a keen understanding of what works in this type of music and what doesn’t, helped to give them an edge and they realized that they could make it.
They didn’t just want to get by. Alex and Andrew wanted to stand out from the rest. This may be a big reason for their success; they don’t stop until they are sure that something feels right. The brains behind the Chainsmokers are continuously looking for ways to try new things, in order to stay ahead.
They aren’t afraid to adapt, to change, to reach a broader type of audience. One can say that their music has evolved over the years, and it’s certainly true, but their talent and skill for creating hits remains the same.
