Grammy Award-winning and Billboard Chart topping artist/producer duo, The Chainsmokers, have evolved into a dominating musical force with a diverse repertoire of songs that have led them to become one of music’s hottest recording artists. Comprised of Alex Pall and Drew Taggart, their signature sound deftly reaches across indie, progressive and pop realms. Their evolution as producers and as songwriters has seen them develop some of the biggest breakthrough songs over the course of the last two years and their original tracks and remixes have topped the charts throughout the world.
In 2016, the group catapulted to worldwide stardom with 3 certified Multi-Platinum hits. “Roses,” featuring Rozes, from their Gold certified debut EP Bouquet, was a 4X Platinum smash that shot to #1 on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart. “Don’t Let Me Down” featuring Daya, included on the duo’s second Platinum selling EP titled Collage, went 4X Platinum and was a top 5 Billboard Hot 100 hit.
