Born and raised in New York City, Alex Pall is a member of The Chainsmokers. He along with his partner, Andrew Taggart earned much of the fame from the group. They together released various popular singles and album for which they received various prestigious awards including Grammy Awards. Pall earned a good amount of net worth from the sales of their album and singles.
When Alex Pall met Andrew Taggert and formed The Chainsmokers in 2012, the pair of DJ/Producers started releasing music that enlisted the use of other singers to perform on their songs. This is nothing new for DJ artists, who usually craft the music and then find other collaborators to provide the vocal element. That all changed in July of 2016 with the release of their single “Closer” which featured Taggert on vocals along with pop star Halsey. This was the event that turned the group from faceless studio producers into stars in their own right, and they opened up to Interview Magazine in May 2016 to talk about this.
The band started when Pall, then a NYC DJ, was introduced to Taggart by their manager. They instantly bonded over a love of music and an ambitious drive to succeed. They would work together every day all day in the studio making music together.
Singles and EPs followed as the group slowly built their following. But with their debut studio LP, the group wanted to break ground and do something unique. Instead of doing what every other DJ group does by compiling a hodgepodge of disjointed music and including a few singles that have nothing to do with each other, they decided to create their own sound by writing their own lyrics and singing on their own songs.

Through their social media accounts the band keeps track of their growing fanbase which is getting more and more international. Boasting fans from as far off as the Philippines and South Africa, the group sees many of their fans in the 16 to 25 demographics.
With the group’s growing popularity, the next step is to up their live show game. When they first started out it was a very minimal live show, but now it’s becoming more and more of an elaborate production. Go To This Page to learn more.
Evolving as a group is the key to their longevity. As Pall put it: “It’s all about being on the forefront of pushing new boundaries and giving people new experiences.”
