Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall are both driven and ambitious people who do not settle for the mediocre side of the music world. They seek to always push themselves and they realize that stopping a pursuit or a passion for just a little could actually mean that someone else is going to take their place. They learned this lesson from the countless role models and heros they have musically looked up to in the past, and they seek to learn from the pain of others rather than experience the lessons of the music business for themselves.
The Chainsmokers is a DJ band who collaborated with various other artists to create organic and unique music tracks for the listening world. Their schedule is actually pretty busy and up to their ears because they work everyday from seven o’clock in the morning to nine o’clock at night. This is a consistent effort for them, and working with other musicians just adds to the workload, but it is all worth the sweet rewards of being able to express oneself and reach others globally on a consistent basis.
The Chainsmokers actually have already been around the globe once or twice in a row, and they do not intend to stop. How Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart met came from both of their drives to be opportunists when it came down to when the doors of success opened themselves. For Andrew Taggert and Alex Pall their drive and motivation became apparent because right at the moment they met they would share verbally their ambitions and passions for doing something no other artist has done before, and they did not become casual about their business because if they were to become casual about their business, their business would become a causality, and that is something both of them are inspired to avoid.
