Alex Pall is one half of the group known as The Chainsmokers. He and Andrew Taggert worked hard to get where they are today. Now they have become one of the most popular duos to hit the music scene in recent memory. In an interview with Mathias Rosenzweig, both members of the duo talk about how the met and what it felt like to work on their new song with Halsey called Closer.
Both Alex Pall and Andrew Taggert were in college at the time. Alex loved working as a DJ and Andrew was doing it as a way to make some extra money. Both men had the same manager and thought the two should meet. Taggert was to come from Maine to New York City and once he met Alex Pall both of them knew they were on to something. A day after they met they began the difficult process of writing new music. As their popularity has grown over the years, they have begun to do collaborations with other stars. One star that both wanted to work with was Halsey and they fulfilled that dream.
When they went into the studio to work on the song Closer Pall said that she was great to work with because she held nothing back she was completely herself the entire time that they worked together. Alex says that she has a very powerful voice and that is why they wanted to work with her. It also helped expand their audience base.
One thing that both members of the group are trying to do in the music business is to be original and be themselves. They say with the advent of new technology and the internet songs can become instant hits and fans can interact with them on a daily basis. One of the new formats that they use is Instagram and both Alex Pall and Andrew Taggert realize how powerful social media can be.
Alex Pall has always wanted to make a career out of singing for people. Now with the help of Andrew Taggart, both can do just that.
