Alex Pall’s Rise To Fame

Monday, December 3rd, 2018

Alex Pall started off his career as an inspiring DJ in New York. He started his career off as just a hobby, and later became serious about music as it had started to consume his life, giving it a real shot. His manager, Adam Alpert, knew his plans on wanting to accelerate more in DJing, so he introduced Pall to Andrew Taggert, thus creating the band now known as The Chainsmokers. They hit it off quickly, with their similar taste in musical styles. They were a match made in Heaven.

They started discussing their interests in music, what they listened to in their childhood, and also talked about their ambitions with music. With Pall’s experience in marketing and Taggert’s with producing, they were a force to be reckoned with. Taggart had moved from Maine and Pall quit his job and begin working together. They aren’t like most DJ’s, as they like to incorporate vocals in a lot of their songs. They wanted to find a way to stand apart from all the other Dj’s and artists who were doing the same thing, creating the same type of music.

Pall and Taggart like to write their own songs, using their life experiences and their emotional states. Their vision is to allow their fan base to connect with their music deeply. That is their goal and to not think of it as a way to pay the bills. They were extremely strategic in their sound, by not just sticking to electronic/dance genres, but to adding pop, hip-hop, and indie to the mix. Songs like “Roses”, Don’t Let Me Down” and “Closer” really expanded their career, hitting it big. They have become one of the most popular groups in America, by their own style. They truly have pushed their boundaries to their sound and it has done nothing but helped them successfully. Nothing can stop this dynamic duo of The Chainsmokers.

EDM-Pop Legends, The Chainsmokers, Shine on with Their Diamond Certification

Monday, December 3rd, 2018

Fans of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, also known in the EDM-Pop world as the dynamic duo The Chainsmokers, were thrilled to discover that the duet’s smash hit “Closer” had topped at least 10 million units delivered in the United States, giving their single a coveted diamond certification by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America). While the RIAA seemed slow to break the news themselves, both The Chainsmokers and Halsey (whose intense vocals are featured in the single as well) proudly shared pictures on their Instagram accounts, smiling and holding tightly onto their plaques which commemorate this momentous occasion. Previously, the RIAA had recognized the song’s seven-time platinum status back in March of 2017. However, since that time, this status has grown to a ten-time platinum single, a feat for which many musicians can only hope.

For a little over two years, “Closer” had continuously received praise and recognition on the dance music scene. First, in the later part of 2016’s summer, it rocketed to the top of the Hot 100. Then it later went on to become an addition to the list of songs tied for fourth place in endurance as the number one hit in the United States in all-genre singles. Grammy nominations for both The Chainsmokers and Halsey were received because of the single, and while they did not win these iconic honors, they did collect several other awards along the way. One of these accolades included that of Billboard’s longest-standing number one hit in the Hot Dance/Electronic genre up until recent months, when it was surpassed by the single “The Middle” by Zedd, Maren Morris, and Grey.

While The Chainsmokers were no strangers to having a single in the top 10 hits before releasing “Closer”, this was Hasley’s first time to branch out from her growing fanbase into the dance and EDM culture. Because of this great achievement, Hasley is now a household name.

The successful partnership between Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa has allowed the pair to become linked together in the eyes of the public. TV and radio show host Seacrest is now bringing the workplace relationship he shares with his “Live with Kelly and Ryan” co-host to the small screen with a pilot for a sitcom, “Work Wife.” Ryan Seacrest joined Kelly Ripa on the nationally-syndicated morning talk show in 2017 and has become a favorite with fans and sponsors alike.

Springing to fame as the co-host of “American Idol”, Ryan Seacrest has become a staple of many of the major events on the TV calendar, including his role as host of “Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve.” Although he may be best known for his role as the host of ABC’s New Year celebrations and “American Idol”, Seacrest is also a successful radio host with a number of syndicated shows to his name. Not only does producer Seacrest host the weekly, “American Top 40” show but he also hosts the daily “On Air With Ryan Seacrest” nationally-syndicated show.

GreenSky Tours and Records

Monday, October 22nd, 2018

Through a combination of hard work and creative talent, the members of GreenSky, the improvisational bluegrass band, have come a long way since their start in 2000 playing in living rooms and at open mic events in their hometown of Kalamazoo, Michigan. Today, they are playing some of the most legendary venues in the United States, including a performance at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado, and have gotten rave reviews for their jam-based performances from journalists at publications ranging from local newspapers to Rolling Stone Magazine.

The five member band has been on the road for roughly a decade and a half, and they are now realizing the fruits of their labors through becoming a headlining act. They have long been known for the energy of their live shows, which are a combination of traditional music and psychedelic jamming.

While labeled a bluegrass or traditional act, the band defies classification. GreenSky does not have a drummer, yet their shows are rowdy events where the audience joins in through singing and stomping their feet. While they are not a rock band, they perform with a full light show. GreenSky has a reverence for roots music, but they are hardly playing music that belongs in a museum; in fact, they’ve been known to run their dobro sound through an amplifier!

GreenSky fans have the loyalty of Deadheads, and they frequently travel for miles to catch the band live when they are in the area. Although GreenSky made their reputation as a live act, they’ve also done a number of highly acclaimed studio albums. They plan to release a new record, All For Money, in January of 2019 and then hit the road to promote it. As a treat to fans, behind-the-scenes video footage of the recording of the album will be released along with the music.

The Chainsmokers, Notated Verbalization

Tuesday, May 1st, 2018

Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart double team the renown and famously titled Chainsmokers which strategizes their musical direction towards breaking social norms of listeningbtovthe style that is so prevalent in todays culture. When writing about music it is unavoidable to not discuss how music shapes the cultures of the generations yet to come in the present and future periods of time. Since music has interweaved itself into the subconscious realms of the social functions of today one might ask what needs might need to be filled for the human void to be that much more satisfied. It is the Chainsmokers who discuss not just things that shape the culture around the individual people today but who also and more importantly talk about the culture that is prevalent and prevailing in society today. The Chainsmokers go above and beyond just providing entertainment as a commodity and luxury to the masses who want to tickle their eardrums with pleasant noises and they incorporate very real explanations on what is actually going on in todays current world as well to educate the younger generations of what it is they should be cognizant of instead of feeding out the junk so commonly discovered in musical sectors today. Their latest work Sick Boy for example describes and immerses in the engrossing details of pressure that occurs within the human brain when using social media sites. Narccissm has crept it’s way into the cracks of Facebook and Twitter to those who like to frequently check in on who likes what and who’s profile looks better than others. Although it was not the original intention of the founders of such business systems, the negative aspects of social circles have multiplied times ten in the areas which entail that performances and appearances equals one’s worth and self respect. Therefore, because of the obvious nature which permeates the circles of Facebook and Twitter, this provides an exact opportunity for The Chainsmokers to verbally elaborate on what is going on through their bold yet truthful and intelligent lyrics. Yes, this stems from their anger and frustration to keep to their values of real human connectedness despite the social norms of todays apparent use of technology.

Lawrence Bender Raises Public Awareness of Global Warming with An Inconvenient Truth

Monday, April 9th, 2018

Lawrence Bender is widely known for his role in producing some of the most popular films of all time, including Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs and Kill Bill. While all of these films are fantastic for their entertainment value and contributions to modern cinema, one of the most important contributions that Lawrence Bender has made in the way of film production has been in his role in bringing An Inconvenient Truth to the screen. It is very rare that a film so educational and politically charged makes it as a major hit at the Box Office. Lawrence Bender was able to convey a compelling story of global destruction to the average viewer and sell an impressive amount of movie tickets at the same time.

An Inconvenient Truth debuted at the Box Office in 2006 and received some of the highest reviews and ratings of any documentary film. The film features Al Gore on a lecture tour across the country to speak out against the dangers of global warming and educate audiences on the immediate need to reverse the harmful impact that human development has taken on the planet. When audiences walk away after viewing this film, they leave inspired that a high-quality production is capable of making a lasting change in the world. What makes this film even more impressive is that it was produced in such a way that a slide show given in a science lecture captivated audiences for the entire length of the film and left them charged up to make a change.

Lawrence Bender has worked on a long list of equally amazing films, but he had not always planned on working in Hollywood. Growing up in New Jersey, he did not have family connections to Hollywood. He planned to become a civil engineer while studying at the University of Maine and even tried out a brief career in dancing. Lawrence Bender fell in love with the world of film while working odd jobs on movie sets, and the rest was history. He has earned three Oscar nominations so far and shows no signs of slowing down.
