Entering into the music industry can be a difficult task. You have to know someone who can help you get into the business and from there, you have to know how to stay in the business. For most, they do this through the hiring of a manager. It is not the manager’s responsibility to help you make friends however for Alex Pall, he did just that. He was more than just the manager for Alex Pall, he was a friend magnet as well.
Alex Pall had been spending his time in the clubs in NYC playing tracks. He was well known. He was a DJ that had a name that people recognized. It was his name and his love of spinning that helped him to meet Andrew Taggart.
The manager of the Chainsmokers today was the same manager they had in the beginning. It was the manager that Alex Pall was using when he was introduced to Andrew Taggart. He was introduced as the pair held onto the same love of music. When the two were introduced, it was as if their souls had met in a previous lifetime. They instantly clicked and everything else just fell into place.
The scene that you see in a movie where two girlfriends are sipping wine and talking all day and night is similar to the scene between Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart. While the pair did not sip on wine and paint each other’s nails, they did however spend a weekend talking and discussing plans along with playing around with some music. When the weekend came to a close, Andrew knew what he had to do. He must return to Maine and quit his job to return back to the city to begin his time as a Chainsmokers. This was just the start of something amazing for the pair. Since then, they have climbed the charts and stayed there unlike many other groups or bands and artists. This would be the start of something magical that only the duo could understand or relate to. In an industry that is so hard to break into, for them, it was like the door was held wide open while they entered into the business.
