Alex Pall Tells all in Interview

Alex Pall is a founding member of The Chainsmokers. Along with Andrew Taggart, who joined him in 2014, they make incredible pop music. Even though the group is only 4 years old, they have already released near countless hit records. They have released “Roses,” “Paris,” “Don’t Let Me Down,” and many more.

 

One of their most recent songs is “Closer.” It features the singer Halsey and also has additional vocals from Halsey.

 

After the release of “Closer,” The Chainsmokers conducted an interview, discussing the song, their future, and their origins.

 

“I was in college right before I met Alex,” said Andrew Taggart. When Taggart was told that a DJ from New York needed a new production partner, Taggart got on a bus and left Maine for New York.

 

As soon as they met the duo knew that they would work well together. They discussed the current music scene, their own interests, and how to craft their own sound. This resulted in efficient work and a unique sound that they could call their own.

 

As previously mentioned, Halsey also came up during the interview. Alex Pall called her incredible and confessed to the interview that he was anticipating the day when he would collaborate with Halsey. “She’s a very cool and unique artists,” said Pall.

 

The Chainsmokers have been getting more popular as time passes. In today’s music industry, an act is lucky to last even a year. The Chainsmokers have went against the grain, proving that they are able to outlast other acts.

 

Thanks to Instagram, The Chainsmokers are able to watch their fan base grow. South Africa and the Philippines are just too countries that The Chainsmokers have became known in. “It seems like we’re reaching the 16 to 25 demographic,” said Pall. “It’s pretty split between boys and girls.”

 

Taggart chimed in on the topic saying that they do have an under 15 audience, and they do have an over 30 audience.

Clay Hutson: The Man Behind the Curtain

He’s been at many of the best concerts of the past twenty years. Behind the scenes, he twists knobs and levers and literally pulls the strings. Clay Hutson, sound engineer and music producer has worked at the concerts of everyone from Garbage to Kid Rock. Hutson has recently struck out with his own company to manage, produce, and design the entire concert experience. He recently sat down with interviewers from thebrotalk.com to discuss his successes and some of his brightest ideas.

 

Establishing a World-Class Reputation

Reputation management has always been important Clay Hutson, and it hasn’t let him down. A large percentage of his jobs come from repeat business or referrals. These are some of his strategies:

 

  • Be confident in your skills- Hutson credits his vast work experience with giving him the confidence to start his own company.

 

  • Keep an eye on realities- When planning large, complicated sets and stunts, it’s easy to lose sight of simple practicalities like the sizes of the entrances. Keeping an eye on these things will ensure that a creative, but ultimately flawed, plan doesn’t sink an entire show.

 

  • Be willing to work long and hard- This is pretty self-explanatory. When clients see a contractor going the extra mile, they are likely to want to work with that company again and tell their colleagues about their services.

 

  • Check and Recheck- A single major flaw can compromise the safety of the performers and audience, as well as undo all the good that hard work and long hours have accomplished.

 

  • Plan Thoroughly- Clay Hutson described himself sitting in a plane, on the way to a show, making sure that every element of the concert was covered, and every employee’s skills were used to advantage. This kind of planning has kept him successful throughout his career.

How To Put On A Good Show

 

During his interview, Hutson mentioned some ideas he had to make a concert special. He is aware of the latest technologies but added that sometimes the best shows are created when the artists are willing to put some of their own creativity into them.

Finally, he talked about appreciating natural talent rather than a teachable attitude. While attitude is essential, he says there is a level of skill that simply cannot be taught, and workers with that skill should be given some leeway.
