Alex Pall has come a long way from his roots in Westchester, New York. He attended New York University and studied Art History and Music. He stayed in Manhattan after graduation and had odd jobs which included an Art Gallery in Chelsea. He intended to continue to work in the art field but he also did part time work as a Disc Jockey in numerous clubs. It was at one of these clubs that he met Andrew Taggart. They were introduced by a friend of Alex’s, who thought they would work well together in the music industry. His hunch was right when the duo formed the Chainsmokers. They appeared at many of the nightclubs in which Alex had been a DJ. Several recordings were released by them over the years but they did not reach the height of fame they wanted until they released their single, “#Selfie“. This song became such a hit that they now had a following.
Today, they are still churning out hits and have released over twenty singles. In March, 2017, they announced that they would be releasing their first complete album by April of the same year. When it was released, it instantly topped the charts. A second album followed in April of 2018. They have said that they are planning releasing a third album within the next year. Billboard’s Dance 100 chart named them the top dance musicians for 2018. They are continuing to put out new singles every month as they had planned from the very beginning. The following that they had in New York when they first started has now grown to include all fifty states and overseas. They are as well known in Europe as they are in their native America. Many industry leaders have noticed them and wish to sign them now.
