Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, better known as the Chainsmokers, were in New York City in 2016. While there, Alex Pall provided a publication with an in-depth interview. In the interview with Interview Magazine, here’s what he said:
How The Pair Begun Working Together
New York City is where it all started for Alex Pall. He was a DJ, but it was more of a hobby than anything. He described it as a side gig, but he was passionate about it. He went onto say how one day he was browsing artwork at an art gallery when he realized that his entire life was mainly about dance music.
He spoke with his manager, who he is still working with, and that manager introduced him to Andrew Taggart. The two met and the rest is history. Alex decided he would quit his job and pursue his dream.
Knowing If It Would Work
Alex was asked how he knew things would work out after meeting Andrew. His reply was that both of them knew what they could bring and when they initially chatted, they mainly talked about music. They eventually talked about how motivated and how hard they were ready to work to achieve their dreams. From there, the pair started to work hard daily.
Alex On Singing Their Own Songs
The interviewer pointed out that Alex and Andrew are unique because they sing their own songs, and they sing about their real lives. Alex said there are so many artists that actually don’t write their own songs or lyrics. He said the Chainsmokers do work with songwriters, but he and Andrew write the songs with them. He also said that some of the songs were completely written by them.
