Alex Paul stays true to himself through fame

Alex Pall sat down with Interview Magazine along with his partner and the second half the duo The Chainsmokers, Andrew Taggart, to discuss the beginnings of the bands’ success. Pall started his music career as a DJ in New York City. He foamed a DJ duo, called the Chainsmokers. When his partner left the band, his manager introduced him to Taggart and thus forming the pair that everyone knows today.

Even though Pall didn’t want to treat his time in Taggart in the beginning as a job, they would work together every day from 9 am to 7 pm defining their music and identity. Pall likes to attribute their success to being well aware of the rest of the music industry.

“We were both very observant about what was going on around us and who was killing it and what was working and what wasn’t,” Pall said in the interview.

Not only has the band studied other musicians in the industry, but they have also worked with some as well. For the song “Closer,” The Chainsmokers collaborated with Halsey. Pall has nothing but nice things to say about the artist complimenting her strong voice and unique style.

With the success of singles like “Closer,” “Down Let Me Down,” and “Roses,” Pall believes his fans relate to their music on a deeper level and uses Instagram to see precisely who their fan base is. Their base is growing more international in places like South Africa and the Philippines with the age group typically being between 16 and 25.

However, even with the knowledge of their demographic, the artist sticks with making music he and Taggart like.

“We make music for ourselves, and it’s really exciting that everyone else is enjoying it enough that they find some emotional connection to it,” Pall said.

The only thing that is changing is the band’s live performance. The duo wants to make their performances bigger while staying unique to the band’s aesthetic. Pall works with production and visuals to create new content and give new experiences to each audience.

Kim Dao and Janelle had seen solid colored containers that could be used for almost anything like being a pencil holder. The store sells vibrant colored, canvas, high top sneaker pencil cases.
