The chainsmokers haven’t been around long, but they have made their name known across the universe. They have won several music awards including a Grammy, Billboard Music Awards, American Music Awards, iHeart Radio Music Awards, Myx Music Awards, and an MTV Europe Music Award.
Their popular hits “Closer,” “Paris,” “Roses,” “Don’t let me down,” and “Something just like this,” have all topped the charts for several weeks straight. They have collaborated with some great artists in their hits such as Halsey, Daya, Rozes, and Coldplay. They are continuing to create more music in hopes of expanding their audience and growing their crowds.
But before the chainsmokers hit it off big, both Alex Pall and Andrew taggart were both just the typical guy with normal lives and a dream of making it big.
Alex was already into DJing. He played in shows and even had a slight career going on. After a while he finally decided to give his dream a true shot, and his manager found Andrew, introduced them, and the phenomenon began. Not long after that they were creating top chart hits.
Andrew was a college student with a love for music. He was more into electronic music. He produced a couple songs and displayed them on SounCloud. He planned on pursuing a career as a DJ after graduating college, but his life took a turn sooner than he thought. Luckily, Alex was already playing shows with the chainsmokers, and was in need of another band member. Andrew heard about the opportunity of a lifetime, and he got on a bus and headed from Maine to New York.
Alex Pall’s manager introduced them, and the rest was history. They started creating some of their popular hits instantly. It didn’t take them long to be well known across the globe.
