Alex Pall on Chasing Dreams and Living Reality

In a recent interview with Chainsmokers’ band member, Alex Pall, he delved further into his life as a musician and the hard work that brought him from where he was as a dreamer, to living the life he loves as an up and coming musician. In this interview Alex talks about how he got his start, DJing on the side whenever he was able after working his job that paid the bills. He knew that his passion was being a DJ, creating new sounds, and putting out original sounds that no one had heard before, so he was finally ready to “really give it a proper shot.” That was when his manager introduced him to, now band mate, Andrew Taggart.

As soon as they met they talked about “how driven and ambitious [they] where and how badly [they] really wanted this [to be successful artists]”. Pall reminisced about how, only four years ago, their passion and drive was so high that they were working from “like, 9am to pm” and never feeling as though they were slaving away at a job. Though they have always had “the same core values,” both Pall and Taggart have worked extremely hard to develop as artists and find their identity. They take pride in the different sounds that they put out into the music world, being heavily involved with the writing of all their songs, and incorporating sounds from almost every music genre into their own electronic music style. as a huge music fan himself, Pall made it a priority to create music that no one has heard before.

Pall and Taggart didn’t want to create “a different version of the same song,” that we all hear when we turn on the radio,rather they set out to inspire, to blur the lines between genres and become unique. These two talented artists that have put their soul into being original are reaching the world and “as [their] audience expands, [they] have to keep pushing [them]selves.” Pall and Taggart are just getting started, but their drive and love for their industry promises an interesting career.
