CHAIN SMOKERS – THE MODERN DANCE AND ELECTRONIC MUSIC ARTISTS.

Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart who are commonly known as the Chain smokers were named first in Dance Artist on Billboard’s Dance 100. They are the first individuals to be honored for their work in this way. That feeling of success could be felt in that they were from performing an entertaining Ultra Miami 2018 show. This was doubled by their music production hitting streams of one billion and being at the top of Billboard’s new Dance 100 list.

The director of Dance and Electronic Programming at Billboard commended them for their job well done. At the Billboard Music Awards, the Chain smokers honored Avicii who is a well-known Swedish DJ and Producer. Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart told the gathered music fans how Avicii meant so much to many people and how he inspired them. Halsey added by explaining how Avicii was a joy to work with and that his death had devastated them. The two gents dedicated their award to Avicii describing how he made them believe that they would make music with their lives.

The accolades that Chain smokers had been recognized with this year are too many considering that it’s not even mid-year. They kicked off a steady drip of music when they released ‘sick boy’ which is a single released in January. The catchy, evolving song captured the imagination of many fans worldwide because it had more live instrumentation and included Andrew Taggart’s vocals.

Another single was released in February ‘You Owe Me. It reached #4 on the Billboard charts. Its video which is dark and ironic helped it have millions of views on YouTube. The amount of craziness that their music elicits to fans has made one of them tattoo lyrics on their bodies.

By the third month, Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart won iHeartRadio’s awards for the Best Collaboration, Dance artist and album of the year. At the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, they headlined the event and put up an energetic electric performance that included their commercial hits and new songs.

A self-driven duo, they have made an effort to expand their boundaries. Their ability to excite fans and proper use of social media has made them accomplish a lot.

Clay Hutson Has Plans For The Musical Performances Of The Future

The LED screens at concerts seem to be getting bigger. Stage production seems to be getting bigger. Lasers, smoke, holograms and projections mark the modern live music experience and it all seems to be getting more complicated. It forces one to wonder — how does this all come together?

That’s where Clay Hutson comes in. He is a Nashville-based concert producer with the best work ethic in the music industry. He’s the guy that puts all of the fire, lasers, smoke, holograms, projections and screens together for your enjoyment. He’s been on the road since 1999 and he knows how all of the lights, sound and trinkets work. He’s the guy that you want on your side when looking to give the audience an experience they’ll never forget.

Clay is currently working on the Kid Rock concert tour. He shows up at the venue just after 6:00 a.m. to begin planning. He sits down to parcel out each required task and begins delegating responsibility to his crew. But that’s not all that he plans.

In a recent interview, Clay claims to plan out even the most minute details of his own day. This work ethic and attention to detail are done for preparation. In an industry that is fraught with surprises, Clay is always prepared. It ensures that everything goes off without a hitch during the performance.

It’s amazing to think that those visually stunning stages are erected and torn down in a single day, but that’s Clay’s life. He loves the energy and ingenuity it requires. And that’s why, if you catch them in the crowd during the show, you’ll see him with an intent to look on his face. But, if you look closely, he’s not paying attention to the performance.

Instead, Clay is looking at the stage to develop an exit strategy. He’s planning all of the tasks required to break the stage down after the performance. As soon as the crowd starts shuffling towards the exit, Clay begins to delegate responsibilities. There are storage solutions and break down tasks that are complicated and must be performed with efficiency to get everything loaded up for the next show.

Clay Hutson has some big ideas for the shows of the future. He thinks that the distractions of giant screens will taper off in the near future. And he envisions an era of wowing audiences with artistically clever visuals.
