Those who wish to succeed in their music career should know that it takes talent and hard work. For example, they can learn from one of the most talented individuals in the music scene, Alex Pall. It is not by luck that he has achieved such great success in the music industry because he has to stay focused and work with those who had a similar dream with him. He is known for his outstanding musical ability that has led him to work with some of the most recognized icons in the industry. Before he started singing, he was working in New York City where he was getting gigs as a DJ. He also ensured that he was persistent and consistent while building his music career.
While working in the New York City as a DJ, he met Andrew Taggart who later became his friend and bandmate. When they met, they discovered that they had similar goals and they had a passion for music. They matched well because they both wanted to venture in music in their life. After meeting and discovering their talent, they started working together and creating music. They knew they would work hard and focused on creating good music. They formed the Chainsmokers band which has been attracting a large following because fans love their music. When it comes to creating their music they are active. They create lyrics and even produce their beats. They have been creating some of the best EDM music attracting music fans worldwide.
Since then Alex Pall has been successful and influential in the music world. A lot of changes have happened to him since he became famous and successful. For example, he purchased a bungalow two years ago. It is a home with a unique design. It is a home that incorporates modern and traditional styles making it unique and attractive. Alex deserves all the fame and success as well as the money he is earning in the industry today. He has worked hard to achieve success because the music industry is not easy to venture into and many have failed because they do not have the persistence needed to become successful in the music scene.
An artist has to be both creative and self-disciplined to succeed. It’s no longer enough to be complacently lazy and starving. It’s no longer enough to slack out and just wait for the right moment to come. For commercial success to happen, artists have to hustle, grind and put themselves out there. In the Interview Magazine feature of Alex Pall, people learned that Pall’s success is because of such set of values.
Pall invited Andrew Taggart to be part of The Chainsmokers. Both of them clicked on the day that they met. They were able to join forces, create music together and come up with a set of compositions that satisfied them both almost immediately. However, it’s one thing for this duo to create passionate lyrics, but it’s also another layer of challenge to make sure that these songs hit the nerve and get positive feedback from their audience.
Fortunately, these songs got a positive response. The Chainsmokers is now considered one of the most commercially successful EDM bands today. While most EDM pride themselves in the beats and bass hits in the song, Pall’s success’ in EDM is in the lyrics. He is able to push the frontier of EDM by focusing on lyrics, words and stories in the EDM, instead of just churning hooks and catchy beats.
Pall also believes that the secret to always staying relevant and creatively successful is to not settle. Artists should always keep on doing new things that excite them.
The secret to Pall’s successful performance in live shows may also come from the fact that he wants things to grow bigger and bigger. One successful show that The Chainsmokers did was the one in Red Rock, and it was so successful that it already sold out just seven months before the event. It could be said that this pushed through because of the calculation and planned effort of Pall to always make the performance in the freshest way possible. Right now, the continued success of The Chainsmokers comes from Pall’s focus on building better productions and more creative short acts.
