Alex Pall and The Risk He Takes By Using His Own Life as Material for His Craft

Home | Artist | Alex Pall and The Risk He Takes By Using His Own Life as Material for His Craft

The music lovers who have listened to the music of The Chainsmokers should know that without Alex Pall, there would probably no Chainsmokers. There wouldn’t be a band that has touched thousands of lives with a set of musical lyrics that you rarely find in most EDM music. Without Alex Pall, the people who are fans of Chainsmokers would have to be stuck with loud and heartless EDM beats.

The Palpability of Lyrics

It can be said that there are already so many musicians in the industry today. There’s a lot of competition among bands, and in order to stand out, you have to offer a product differentiator that would put your offering to where it should be regarding appeal. As the co-creator of The Chainsmokers, the appeal that Alex Pall brings to the band is in the power of his lyrics. He realized he needed to do this. Before starting out as a music creator, he was still a minor DJ in New York City, and he played in various colleges, for undemanding audiences. That kind of culture is what inspired him to write music, and to be able to work the kind of job that he thought was only for dreams.

It was later that he realized that most of the DJs could get people to listen to the songs, but for the songs to mean something, he had to add something others can’t. That’s when he realized how making the lyrics palpable to the core of one’s being is the way to go. This is the reason why he has never missed a chance on refining the lyrics of the songs he makes.

The Real Lives

Alex Pall also believes that to be brave in the music industry requires risks, and on his part, the risk that he makes is that the lyrics he puts in his songs are based on his real life. Not on someone else’s life. Not on fictional characters that don’t bear any resemblance to reality. It’s his life that wants to be voiced out, and this is one thing that makes Alex Pall stand out in the music scene right now.
