Before the chainsmokers hit it off big, Alex Pall was just a regular guy with a hobby he loved. He worked a typical job but had a love for DJing. Djing didn’t feel like a job to him, so it was scary for him to think of it as a job. One day, in an art gallery, Alex Pall decided that he wanted to pursue DJing and give it a real shot. His manager at the time, who is his former manager, introduced him to Andrew. They started working immediately.
Andrew Taggart was also just a regular guy before hitting it big with the chainsmokers. He was just another college student with a love for electronic music and an interest in DJing. He started watching DJs from New York hit it off big and it inspired him. He got into creating music and production, and he finally produced a couple of songs. He put his songs on SoundCloud and he played in a couple of shows. Even though he only played in a couple of songs it inspired him to keep going. He planned on moving to Los Angeles, California after college to pursue DJing. But one day someone that worked for his now Band members manager, told him that a duo called the Chainsmokers that played in many shows was looking for another member. Alex hopped on a bus and headed for New York.
The chainsmokers now have some very successful hits called “Roses” and “Don’t let me down.” But one of their biggest hits yet is their hit named “Closer” in which they paired up with the incredible, Halsey. In creating their new music, they wanted to expand their audience, and “Closer” ended up being one of their most popular hits yet.
