Alex Pall is a band member of the duo The Chainsmokers. The group has had success in the recent years after releasing several songs that have been well received by the audience. They major mainly in producing electronic soundscapes that are then topped by a musical, mostly done by a third person.
However, the duo has been entering the mainstream by featuring their voices in their songs as opposed to what most other dance music DJs do. Closer, one of their singles is one of the songs that featured Halsey and Taggart (the other member of The Chainsmokers). The duo wants to establish themselves as an identity that has evolved over the years that they have been active.

Alex Pall started off as a DJ working in New York as a side job though it was a passion of his since he was young. Pall started pursuing the dance music genre after visiting an art gallery, where he realized that it was a part of him. He quit his job after he was introduced to Andrew, who was in college at the time, by Chainsmokers’s current manager. Andrew even moved from Maine to New York to pursue the dream. Pall was already in the group Chainsmokers when his partner left. It was then that Andrew saw the opportunity and took it and joined Pall.
Once they met, they immediately started working on their music. Since Andrew had experience in producing music, something he had done since he was in college, and Pall was good as a DJ; it was easier to make music and create the identity for themselves. The duo kept and keeps trying out new things that the fans could relate to. It’s something that has kept their fan base growing. This is because the two didn’t perceive the act as a job but rather something that they both enjoyed doing.
They always involve the songwriters in the process of making music so that they can grow while still making good music. Pall believes that with the always-changing music industry, The Chainsmokers will be able to get more people to listen to their music.
