The Story of Alex Pall in the Music Industry

Alex Pall narrates how he got into his venture in singing. He grew up deejaying as part of his hobby. He had very little to do regarding career and so deejaying was the option left for him in New York. It was more of a side job for him, which he did with so much passion. During this time, Alex Pall realized that the dance music was something he admires more and so he thought of trying it. He talked over the issue under the manager working with him currently. The manager introduced him to Drew. That is how the partnership with Drew was birthed. They met and began working together. Drew is his colleague in the same band called Chainsmokers. Pall explains how their friendship progressed and became more fruitful to date. He says that what made it more fulfilling was the fact that they both knew what they have on the table and what they want. They talked about what they would like in music as well as what they already did grew up knowing. They were very ambitious from the start. They keenly observed what was happening in their surrounding analyzing what worked well and what did not work. This was an essential phase of trying to build and shape their identity. Pall was a deejay expert, and on the other hand, Drew was a talented producer.

They continued their relationship working on music every single day. They were trying to create an identity of their own. Pall and his friend were committed to learning, and with time, they found out how similar their core values were. They knew that they did not have a job and so they pushed harder to pay bills and have a good life from it. He points out that their music is unique because they relate to it deeply. Alex Pall insists and clarifies that they sing songs that they have experienced. For them, it is not about seeking a songwriter. It is more of their lyrics. He admits that they work with songwriters, but they ensure they write the songs on their own. The words speak their real-life issues, and that helps people to identify with them. They are proud to work with the famous artist, Halsey.
