Alex Pall Reveals Much about His Career as Part of Chainsmokers

During a recent interview with interviewmagazine.com Alex Pall of the Chainsmokers mentioned that he started off as a DJ. This was his hobby and he did this around New York City although he had a small career going on. He was at an art gallery that he eventually realized that dance was gradually consuming his life. He wanted to give it a good shot.

His current manager whom he worked with then, introduced Alex to Drew. They hooked up and started working together right away. Drew moved from Maine. Alex quit his day job and that is where his career kicked off. From the onset, Alex mentioned that he and Andrew Taggart knew what they brought to the table.

They talked mostly about what they liked in terms of music and what they were into as they grew up. The two were observant about the ongoings around them and what was working and what was not working. They worked together as a team daily and worked on their music. This helped them to create their identity as artists. They still have the same values and still continue to work better to be better artists.

Alex Pall understands that their audience is expanding and thus they need to keep pushing themselves and do new and exciting things. He recently had an opportunity to showcase his home in the Hollywood Hills to Wall Street Journal. He bought the house two years ago. The 1930s classic bungalow is fitted with slate floors and stone fireplaces. The entryway accommodates a huge tree that gives 3,600 square foot home a mid-century feeling.

The renovations done to it in the 1980s and 1990s gave the residence an industrial edge. The interior decor by Peti Lau reflects the eclectic style of Alex. A walk into the different rooms will reveal that Pall does not fear to blend together things that may not traditionally match to come up with new and outstanding works of art. The stylish bungalow is indeed revealing that Chainsmokers are doing quite great in their career.

The Chainsmokers Show Much Love For Fellow Artist Avicii

Alex Pall and Drew Taggart the duo makes up the American DJ and production group the Chainsmokers. They were recently at The Billboard Music Awards, where thousands had come to see the performances and awards. The awards ceremonies took place in Las Vegas at the Grand Garden Arena. The duo was awarded the Top Dance/Electronic Act award. Among others that were at the gala with them was Halsey and Kelly Clarkson both famous singing sensations.

The ceremony had a somber tone when Avicci, a Swedish DJ and producer who was much loved in the community was honored. Avicci’s death was felt throughout the industry, struggling with mental problems and in the end taking his own life. The duo spoke about how Avicci had inspired and had touched so many artists inside EDM and that he meant so much to the community. Halsey who had sang on the Chainsmokers track “Closer” with Drew Taggart added “Everyone who worked with him would say he was such a joy and that makes his tragedy so much more painful. It is a reminder to all of us to be there and support and love our friends and family members who may be struggling with mental illness.”

When the Chainsmokers received their award, Taggart went on to say “We want to dedicate this award to Avicci, he is someone who made us believe that this is something we could do with our lives. Inspired all of us. Influenced our music and influenced pop music in general. He will be missed and I hope he has found peace.”

The Chainsmokers are a very talented duo and have had the honor of winning the 2017 Top Hot 100 Song. This year they presented the award to Luis Fonsi for “Despacito”. They have collaborated with Coldplay on the single “Something Just Like This” in February of 2017.
