Alex Pall is one of The Chainsmokers duo, a DJ band that has a track record of inspiring and great music. Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart have released huge hits in the industry with ‘Closer’, ‘Something Just Like This’ and ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ coming on top. Previously, they entirely relied on other musicians to add vocals to their electronic landscapes. In ‘Closer’, Andrew Taggart shocked many when he sang alongside Halsey.
The group has achieved many milestones in their music career. However, this article will focus on Alex Pall. He recently acquired a lavish home that befits a star of his kind. The Hollywood Hill home speaks volumes about Pall’s taste. With a mix of modern design and traditional touch, the home is a hodgepodge of architectural styles. With all the achievements, it is easy to assume the journey to fame and prosperity was a walk in the park for Pall. To the contrary, it had its ups and downs.
Alex Pall was passionate about music growing up. He performed music around New York City at a tender age. It reached a point he needed to get an ‘official job’ and as fate had it, he landed one at a gallery. At the gallery, he met a nice person who realized that his talents matched that of Andrew Taggart and linked them up. Taggart came all the way from Maine to New York City to meet the new talent and that was that. They started doing music together.
Each one of them had unique things they brought to the table. They combined their skills to produce great music that people from all ages could relate to on a deeper level. They kept on self-checking and self-discovering all along the journey. They are never hesitant to try out new things.
Alex Pall revealed that they personally take part in composing lyrics for their songs. The multi-award winning duo tells their real life stories through their music. All along the journey, they have met people who proved to be very helpful and inspiring. Halsey was one of Alex Pall’s incredible people that he has ever worked with.
Roc Nation has carved out a niche for itself as the premier entertainment company in America. The company works with some of the leading recording artists, athletes, producers, and songwriters in the US. Some of their clients include Rihanna, Shakira, J. Cole, Fat Joe, and Big Sean among other stars. For over nine years, Roc Nation in conjunction with other entertainment entities such as Live Nation has shaped the American music industry. In 2008, Live Nation and Roc Nation agreed to work together in a $150 million deal. The deal was negotiated by Roc Nation’s top executives including Desire Perez. However, the deal will expire next year.
Speculations are ripe that Live Nation is considering entering into a new deal with Roc Nation but with some changes. Since Live Nation opted out of buying recorded music (because the product has been underperforming on the market), it is highly likely that any new deal that it will enter into will be exclusive of buying recorded music. However, Live Nation is willing to continue its touring deal with Roc Nation.
Recently, Perez and Roc Nation’s founder, Jay-Z, paid a courtesy call on Sir Lucian Grainge. The latter is the chairman and CEO of Universal Music Group (sometimes shortened to UMG). When the three came together, players in the music industry were anticipating an announcement of a lucrative deal between the two entertainment giants. However, it seems that Roc Nation will continue its previous distribution deal with UMG as no new announcements are forthcoming.
Perez was Jay-z’s business associate way before Roc Nation was founded. She has been the person behind the curtain in Roc Nation, but her contributions to the brand have been noticeable. Despite spearheading lucrative deals for the brand, Perez has worked closely with many Rock Nation’s artists including Rihanna.
