Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart on “How they met,” “Making Music,” and More

Rosenzweig interviewed the duo known as The Chainsmokers around the time of their hit release “Closer” featuring Halsey. The pair answered questions on how they met, working as a pair, the decision to sing on their own track.

Andrew met Alex after hearing that he was in need of someone to fill the second spot in the Chainsmokers duo. Andrew was from Maine and Alex was in New York. The two immediately hit it off and continued to work in the heart of New York City.

Rosenzweig asked, “Do you think that being a DJ duo and being in the electronic genre makes it harder to build a strong identity as artists?” Andrew replied first as he explained that it really isn’t a positive or negative but then continues to talk about the way in which the duo created their identity and their excitement for, “ some new songs that haven’t come out yet that really blur the lines between indie, pop music, dance music, and hip-hop.” They talked about how they are constantly evolving and staying a few steps ahead of the game. Their songs that people are listening to now are from past selves as they have already become and created something new.

When asked how it was to work with Halsey, Alex Pall couldn’t praise her enough. “She’s incredible,” he states. Halsey has all the characteristics of the type of artist that the duo wants to work with. She has a strong voice and unique identity that she is secure in.

Alex and Andrew continued to prove how passionate they are about their work as they dove into the decision of singing and producing their own work. These two know their target audience and how the age range and demographics are both stretching. They are preparing for this shift in the audience as they develop their next tour. Planning to perform more than just DJ, the duo will make the show worth it to all the fans that helped the tickets sell out 7 months before.
