Alex Pall was a DJ in New York, and then he worked as an art gallery where he realized dance music was taking most of his time because he was passionate about it. He was working then with their current manager who introduced him to Drew, and he got into music officially. Andrew Taggart was in college where he also had an interest in DJ and dance music, and he struggled by attending auditions and doing productions. Then he met a child who worked for Alex’s manager who told him there is a duo called Chainsmokers but one of them is leaving, and he thought Andre would fit the position. Andrew took a bus from Maine to New York, met Alex, they connected, and the next day they were making music, and four years later they have released “Closer.”
The duo was positive about making their career in music work. According to Pall, he knew it would work because they both knew what they wanted and they mostly had conversations about how they loved music growing up. They always had conversations about their album and how to get their audience to relate to their songs deeper and deeper. Taggart stated that is both challenging and easy to be a DJ duo when you want to build a strong identity as artists. The pair stopped limiting themselves to dance music, and they started releasing all kinds of music which were accepted by their fans such as “Roses” and “Don’t Let Me Down.” According to Pall, they have gone around the world three times to cater to the needs of their expanding audience.
