Roses, Don’t Let Me Down, Closer, Paris, and Something Just Like This, are all songs you recognize from arguably the most popular musical group in the world right now – The Chainsmokers. And though we know all about the duo that is Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall, we don’t know as much about the man responsible for creating the dynamic duo, until now. Born and raised on New York’s Upper East Side, Adam Alpert is someone whose name has become synonymous with success, especially when it comes to fostering and developing the best musical talent – something he has been doing since he graduated from college.

Starting out as the Director of Marketing and Promotions for The Butter Group followed by co-founding 4AM DJs (which is where he met Alex and Andrew), Adam’s natural instinct for finding stellar talent brought him to his current role as CEO of Selector Songs and Disruptor Records, both of which are part of the Sony Music Group.

And amidst all this success and most recently, the dropping of The Chainsmoker’s first album, we thought there was no better time to catch up with the man of the hour than the present. So take a peek into the life and style of music maven Adam Alpert
