There are not many people or musicians who can say that they have been able to maintain high stakes in the charts without losing momentum along the way at some point. Sure, there are a few names that people can think of but one name that rings true today is, The Chainsmokers.
The Chainsmokers did not grow up like most other bands where they met as school age children, became best friends only to form a band and make it big. Instead, they met as adults while in college through a mutual friend and hit it off. They shared a passion and that passion led them to becoming a top selling group of today.
Alex Pall spent much of his adulthood growing up in New York City working as a DJ. He worked throughout the city and found that he was quite popular and wanted to do more with what he was doing. He wanted to pursue a higher passion than just spinning music in city clubs. He wanted to eventually turn his love of music into something much more which is what he did when he and bandmate created the Chainsmokers.
Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart were introduced to one another when someone recommended that Andrew check out the original members of the Chainsmokers. The one member who decided to leave the band had left an opening for a new member. That is when someone that Andrew knew had suggested that he check it out. Andrew and Alex took to each other pretty quickly and that is when Andrew quit school and ended up moving to New York City to join the group.
After the pair met, they had long talks about the things they loved most growing up and how the music they loved shaped what they wanted to do. After finding that they had much in common with one another, Andrew and Alex went forward on forming the new and improved version of the Chainsmokers. Here they are years later, still making music with one another and still maintaining their spots at the top of the charts.
