• Knowing Alex and Drew ( some call them The Chainsmokers) is knowing good stories and some crazy experiences, but with in it all lies a passion for great music and happy people. The DJ duo take a brief second during their Australian touring and constant studio work, to release a new hit record titled “Inside Out” and share the story of it’s birth with us. AD (AlexDrew), as I call them , have an amazing ear for true talent and great vibes. They make this evident yet again with the release of their latest masterpiece “Inside Out”, a energetic and uplifting tune, with newly discovered vocalist Charlee. Their usual vibrant production leads the way for Charlee’s sweet Swedish accent and vivid vocal ability to reign in this release. When we can, we like to pick the duo’s brain and learn as much about their music as possible. This specific record had a real story behind it, full of trails and at the end a victorious outcome. As your ears interact to the prolific presentation, let us share the story of Inside Out from The ChainSmokers point of view.
When we asked how “Inside Out” really came about and where did they find Charlee? This was the response we got;
“So basically we discovered Charlee through our buddy Adrian Lux. We asked him to put us in touch and we really hit it off. She had such an incredible voice and we didn’t even know about her song writing yet. We sent her a demo called Halo we had done and within a week she had sent us back one of the most dark and emotional top-lines we have yet received. Side story she actually was in NYC and we had finished the song, but unfortunately a few weeks later our computer crashed and we lost everything. (IF YOU ARE READING THIS BACK UP YOUR STUFF NOW!) Good news was we were better producers and the new version kicks ass! Its rare you find a partner like Charlee to work with, someone who is saw raw and authentic as an artist we are working on a bunch of other stuff wit her as well she just inspires us in a way a lot of music doesn’t. For us that inspiration is super important because its very fleeting so it was a real pleasure working with this gal.”
As we do here, we will keep you up to date with more from the ChainSmokers and New Artist Charlee.
