Alex Pall “Dream Chaser”

For a musician to quit their full time job to pursue a career in music takes a lot of guts,and that’s exactly what Alex Pall did. According to an interview he did with interview magazine.com, he was working at an art gallery at the time which can be a lucrative career for someone.

Alex Pall is one half of the group The Chainsmokers. With the success of their mega hit singles “Closer”, “Roses” and “Don’t Let Me Down”, their future seems to be pretty bright in the business. Alex also stated that while working in the art gallery, he was a DJ in New York making a name for himself, so it’s quite obvious it was his calling to pursue music. He pointed out in that he and his partner didn’t want to treat creating music like it was a job, but they did have a lot more to learn about the business, so at the end of the day it is a job because they still had bills to pay, a homeless musician can be very stressful.

The group got together 10 hours a day to work on their music, Alex said they needed that time to create their identity as artist. Pall is very much in tuned with social media, thanks to Instagram he stated that they are reaching the 16 to 25 year old demographic. Pall also said that their music is becoming more international seeing places like the Philippines and South Africa, which is a huge accomplishment.

Fans are sending videos of their kids singing our songs, some people say that their moms are humming “Roses” which is cool Pall said, it proves that our music is reaching all ages. “We don’t care how old you are, or what color you are, just if our music makes you feel a certain way”, that’s what matters to us. An emotional connection.
