DJ Alex Pall of the Chainsmokers is finding success by breaking the rules by being himself all while pushing the boundaries. Alex Pall made his big break after meeting Andrew Taggart and then the two formed, the popular duo, The Chainsmokers.
Becoming a DJ has always been Alex Pall’s passion. Born in Westchester, NY Pall was a DJing around New York City as a hobby. When he met Andrew Taggart the two had a connection. Andrew moved to New York, and Pall quit his job so they could focus on creating electronic music. Both Alex and Andrew knew they had the passion to make The Chainsmokers successful. At first, the two spent long hours just getting to know one another musically, and creating their identity as artists. One goal of the artists is to get their listeners to connect deeply to their music and write lyrics that are relatable. Alex continues to try and push himself to keep trying new things. The Chainsmokers are more than just electronic music, they incorporate indie, pop music, and hip-hop too.
Alex Pall is proud that he and Andrew write their own lyrics based on their lives. Even though it’s about their experience, people of all ages can relate to The Chainsmokers songs. As much as they want to be unique when it comes to their music, Alex and Andrew also want to be unique in their live shows. When an audience goes to see The Chainsmokers live, Alex and Andrew are not only playing music, but they’re performing, they’re putting on a show with the goal to push boundaries and give people new experience when they go to see them.
The Chainsmokers have been growing bigger and bigger over the years. Alex and Andrew have been asked to ring in the New Year as part of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest 2019.
