During his growing up years, Alex Pall was a DJ in New York City. At this time he realized that what is liked best was dance music. When he was introduced to Andrew Taggart the two just kind of meshed and that was when his career really began. Since Taggart was already one half of a DJ duo known as the Chainsmokers it was easy for Alex Pall to step into the other half. They got together every day and worked on their music and on creating their identity as artists.
It was sheer joy when they both discovered that people were able to relate to their music on a deeper level. It took a bit but then Alex Pall realized that it takes so much more than just doing straight dance music so they began creating songs that would blur the lines between pop music, indie, dance music, and hip-hop. Among their creations are songs like “Roses” and “Waterbed”. The duo works closely with songwriters so that the songs are really about them and they sing about things that are happening in their lives. With an audience that is always changing, they are rearranging and doing what they love and appreciated the acknowledgment they get from their fans.
Alex Pall has purchased a home in the Hollywood Hills. The house was originally built in the 1930s and was renovated in the late 1980s and early 1990s. He asked Peti Lsu to help him decorate. Every room in the house is unique showing his own kind of personal style. Some examples of what you could see inside are the bedroom has a stone floor covered by a thick carpet and the living room is kind of futuristic with a handmade table and many couch pillows for comfort. The house features floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the beauty of the canyons and mountains. There are lush gardens, multiple patios, and custom water features.
