New Beginnings With Alex Pall

Alex Pall of The Chainsmokers got his start DJing at different spots around New York City. This started out as more of a hobby than a job to him. Although the fun he was having was undeniable, he decided it was time to take a “proper shot” in the industry after realizing how much this culture consumed his life. Alex’s manager then introduced him to Drew who was going to school and interning for Interscope at the time. “That’s where it all started” said Pall. And so it began.

Drew made the move down from Maine shortly after hearing about the opportunity and the two of them started working right away, already knowing what they brought to the table. It started with conversations about the kind of music they were into growing up, as well as how ambitious they were in general about making music. Obviously they wouldn’t be where they are today if ambition wasn’t present.

They met from 9am until 7pm almost every day, trying new things and ironing out the creases essentially. Both of them were aware of what was working and what wasn’t in the music industry by looking at and listening to upcoming artists. It was just a matter of forming their own identity.

After finding that common ground, The Chainsmokers started to release music, shaking things up in the dance genre.

This went on for awhile until they decided it was time to do things a little different. Rather than feeling confined the two of them stepped out of the box and started trying to make more of a personal connection with the audience. They decided to not only bring out some vocals and a story, but the stories were theirs and no one else’s. A new single titled “Closer” featuring Halsey is a perfect example of this.

The Chainsmokers are always looking for new ways to take a step forward with the music they create along with the live shows they put on. There’s a lot of factors that separate them from many artists currently and it will be exciting to see what they bring to the table in years to come.

Talkspace for All of Your Therapy Needs

Seeing a therapist can be a daunting experience for anyone. You make an appointment, get put on a wait list that could be weeks or even months and then you sit in front of someone in a cold office where you tell them your life story. It’s something that isn’t exactly a great option for individuals who have anxiety, PTSD, depression or any other mental disorder. The better option would be to get therapy from home, but this wasn’t always viable for those who wanted or even needed it. Now it is thanks to an app known as Talkspace.

Talkspace was designed for people just like you who wanted to make use of therapy from home without going out to a local office or spending the money per session. Talkspace is a whole lot cheaper because you’re paying a few dollars a day to get around the clock access to a professional therapist. There is no reason to not make use of Talkspace because of the amazing abilities that this app has given to people who have made use of it. You just download the app to whatever device you use the most and then create an account that is perfect for your needs.

The reason Talkspace is so used by so many people is because it’s convenient and easier for those who do not want to sit in front of a therapist. You do not need to worry that you’re choosing an option that is not going to be as good as regular therapy just because many have noticed that Talkspace is actually better than what they were used to using before. You can visit the Talkspace app on your play store to learn more about the company and what others are saying about the program when they began to use it.
