The ambitious, DJing, New York native, Alex Pall, member of the pop duo, The Chainsmokers. After reading Pall’s featured interview on Interviewmagazine.com, I learned that Pall is no stranger to hard work, perseverance, and dedication. In the beginning years of his music career Pall worked in an art gallery during the day and DJ’d during the night. Pall purposefully started to build a career as a DJ in New York City. He consciously witnessed his passion for music grow rapidly around this time. Soon Pall’s love for dance music consumed his life. DJing and producing became so prominent in his life that it became more like a fun hobby to him instead of work. He decided to take his passion for music more seriously. His manager at the time introduced him to his current bandmate, Andrew Taggart. Taggart and Pall produced and wrote their own music together, alongside other talented songwriters for several years before they scored a number one hit with “Closer”. Alex Pall admit that him and Andrew hit it off almost immediately after meeting each other. Their love for music go as far as their childhood. Not to mention their incredible work ethic made it easier to determine if they wanted to create an elite partnership together.
Alex Pall reminds me so much of myself. I am a young multi-talented entrepreneur pursuing a career in the entertainment business. I am a server part time during the day and a filmmaker during the evening. My love for art never made me interested enough to work for a art gallery. However, I am a fan. I love the arts as much as I love good food. What I appreciate most about Alex is that he knew what he wanted, he knew what fueled him, and he went for it without hesitation. That alone gives me so much hope. It reassures me that no matter how hard it gets, I must continue to strive for whatever fulfills my soul.
