An Interview with Alex Pall of The Chainsmokers

Andrew Poll had a strong attraction to music from an early age. Growing up in New York City he found himself enjoying music by performing as a DJ. Although the work was fun, Andrew realized he was looking to do more, something more substantial, something unique.

A meeting arranged by his manager with Andrew Taggart from Maine helped change that. The two hit it off right away, finding they both had quite a few similarities with ambitions and ideas. They had similar tastes in music and inspirations as well. With Taggart’s background as a producer and Poll knowing the marketing side, the two of them working on a project together had a clear vision on what would work and what would not.

Meeting on a daily basis the two continually worked side by side with the same desire of wanting to reach out to others and connect with them. Creating music that speaks volumes to people, tunes that fans from all over the world can understand and relate to. Throughout the years these two have continually worked fervently to become the best artists that they can possibly be, trying new ideas, testing their limits, and experimenting with writing about their own lives, their own issues, problems and experiences.

One of those experiences that Pall and Taggart jumped on was having the opportunity to work with Halsey. Being the top person on their list of artists they would like to work with, Halsey’s raw, genuine personality mixed with her unique voice brought spice to their work together.

Needless to say, “The Chainsmokers” has gotten bigger than anything Pall or Taggart could have ever hoped for back in their beginning days. Their following has now reached the international level with a fan base of equal both male and female from all ages across the globe. The future looks bright for them, their music and their vision. It’s an exciting time to see where Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart came from and how far they will go.
