Alex Pall: How to Become a Successful Musician

The Chainsmokers is a phenomenal group who managed to create a dozen songs that would make it to the top billboard list. The group is composed of Alex Pall, who hails from New York, and Drew Taggart, who came from Maine. The two young men share the same passion for music, and it became easy for them to get along. The Chainsmokers are also uploading their music videos simultaneously on their YouTube channel whenever they release a new single. In just a matter of hours, their YouTube videos would record millions of views, thanks to their dedicated fans around the world who are supporting them 24/7.

Before they experienced fame and fortune, Alex Pall and Drew Taggart lived simple lives. Drew Taggart is a local musician from Maine, and he went to New York City after meeting his future manager who was on a trip and spotted him performing. Alex Pall, on the other hand, was art gallery personnel in New York City. It was his day job, and when the night time comes, he fully transforms into a DJ who performs across the city. Alex Pall had fallen in love with creating music ever since he was a child, and he enjoys sharing his craft with other people. Every night, he earns a lot of money just for performing his jam. It came a time when the money that he is earning from being a DJ eclipsed what he was earning on his day job, so to harness his talent, he decided to quit working at the art gallery and focused on being a DJ.

Alex Pall met his future manager while he was performing at a club. The managed loved his music and asked him to join the group that he is trying to create. The group, which will be called The Chainsmokers, was created in 2012, with Alex Pall and Drew Taggart as the major acts who would be composing and performing their songs. They offer a unique beat to their listeners, which gave them the fame that they deserve, but with the addition of “Sick Boy” to their album, the group admitted that they are trying to experiment on other music genres.

Funk Returns to the Charts

Taylor swift has been ousted out of the #1 spot by a song that seemed to come from the 80’s. Bruno Mars’ Uptown Funk has become Billboard’s #1 in the Hot 100 chart. The song is unlike any other song from the decade. It has elements of a good 80’s song but has some contemporary elements to it as well.

Mark Ronson talked about how the song was conceived. Bruno used to do this sound check before his gigs and the song kind of picked up from that. The track goes way back while Bruno Mars was still touring. Another odd thing about the song is how it lacks a chorus. This makes the track very unique and had more placed for other exciting parts of the song.Probably the most memorable part of the song is the brass riff. It does not have any vocals but the way it built up to that part made it very exciting and groovy.

The scale used for the song is very basic and only two chords are needed to play the entire track. An interview with a professor on popular music , Christopher Cowdray, reveals some of the reasons why the song is so catchy.
