The Chainsmokers Are on a Streak of Hits

The Billboard Music Awards honored Avicii, Swedish producer and DJ along with The Chainsmokers and Halsey. Alex Pall and Drew Taggart told thousands who attended the event in Las Vegas that Avicii is an artist that has inspired so many people in many ways.

Halsey also commented that it was a pleasure to have the opportunity to work with him and that the whole situation is a reminder that mental illness is a struggle for many.

Taggart dedicated the award to Avicii and also reiterated what Halsey said about him being a good influence.

Unfortunately, Avicci died at age 28 when he took his own life. Unreleased music of his still may be released according to president of Geffen Records who the late star used to produce his music.

The Chainsmokers are in a streak of hits and have just released their “Sick Boy” song. The catchy music video for the song got over 136,000,000 views and had a memorable and captive sound to it. Perhaps the song has become such a hit due to the live instrumentation, or Drew’s Vocals.

In February their song, “You Owe Me,” reached #4 on the Hot 100 Singles chart and is a dark and shocking sing with over 34,000,000 views on YouTube. It took just one month. Their video for “Closer” got over 2 million views in February and was released in July of 2016.

The Chainsmokers are not slowing down anytime soon, and in March their hit single, Everybody Hates Me, got over nine million views in under a month. Not bad for just an audio track.

The iHeartRadio Awards was another bright highlight for the duo and Taggart and Drew received awards for Dance Album of the Year, Dance Artist of the Year, and Best Collaboration.

At the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, The Chainsmokers performed six new songs integrated with their commercial hits, electro mashups, and hard dubstep to get eth crowd going.

The duo has broken the mold and is continuously pushing the limits of music, and that is just one of the reasons why their fans love them.

Doug Levitt Embarks On An Epic Journey To Create “The Greyhound Diaries”

At the turn of the 21st century news reporter Doug Levitt seemed to have his future career mapped out for him as he was reporting from around the world as a correspondent for CNN and other major networks. However, Levitt felt something was missing in his life and the artistic experience within the U.S., which prompted him to embark on a new career as an artist touring the country to create “The Greyhound Diaries”.

The Greyhound Diaries” has been warmly received by fans and critics alike in the many different forms it has taken since Doug Levitt embarked upon a six week journey by Greyhound Bus in 2004; Levitt found such richness to discuss in “The Greyhound Diaries” that he could not end his artistic journey after six weeks and continued his epic ride across the U.S. through 2012. After more than 80,000 miles of traveling Doug Levitt has released two EP’s of music and assembled over 10,000 images used in the book detailing his experiences on the road.

Doug Levitt may not seem like a traditional American artist, but he has always felt a calling to travel and felt his artistic choices would play an important role in his life and career. Born into one of the best known political families in Washington D.C., Doug Levitt graduated from Cornell University after moving between the sciences and international politics as a major. After finding success as a news correspondent Levitt stated his own belief that the death of his father prompted him to leave this career and follow his chosen artistic path.

“The Greyhound Diaries” has become something more than even Doug Levitt expected after the former CNN correspondent found himself exploring everyday American life as the 2008 economic slowdown began. Doug Levitt has been described as following in the footsteps of great American artists and social commentators who were found in the early and mid 20th century and created a golden period in the U.S. based arts.
