About the Chainsmokers
Nominated for three Grammy Awards this year for Best New Artist, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Closer,” and Best Dance Recording for “Don’t Let Me Down,” The Chainsmokers are one of the hottest young American EDM DJ duos. With top hits all around the world, their signature sound has foundations in Indie, Progressive and Pop Music. Their first major release “#SELFIE” went viral and swept the world with over 480 million views on YouTube. Following “#SELFIE,” The Chainsmokers continued to top charts with their popular singles “Roses” and “Don’t Let Me Down,” with the latter becoming their first top five single. Their 2016 worldwide mega-smash hit “Closer” was the No. 1 hit for 12 weeks and has broken records for the longest run song within the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 since debuting there at the ninth spot. The song featured the voice of The Chainsmokers’ very own Drew Taggart in their collaboration with singer-songwriter Halsey. The duo’s newest release “Paris” is the first song produced without a featured vocalist, but instead highlights Taggart’s solo performance with unaccredited female backing by Emily Warren who will be featured in The Chainsmokers’ FedExForum show.

ABOUT Emily Warren
Singer-songwriter Emily Warren has written songs for multiple high profile pop artists including Jessie J and 5 Seconds of Summer. “Masterpiece,” the third single on Jessie J’s Sweet Talker album, was co-written by Warren and debuted at No. 30 on the U.S. Mainstream top 40 and No. 65 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. Warren’s vocals were featured in The Chainsmokers’ song “Until You Were Gone” which Nylon Magazine praised as a “delivery… filled with a longing that packs a strong punch.” Shortly after, Warren co-wrote The Chainsmokers’ Grammy nominated hit, “Don’t Let Me Down.” Warren’s unaccredited vocals are also featured on The Chainsmokers’ latest release “Paris.”
