D.A. Wallach was one of the first few thousand people to use Facebook, and he's been a social media pioneer for artists ever since.
His band, Chester French, was discovered by Pharrell Williams and Kanye West while at Harvard University.
Since then, the duo has taken off. Wallach has already toured with the likes of Lady Gaga, Blink 182, and Weezer. We caught up with him in his hometown of Milwaukee before he hopped on a plane for London to talk about how social media, and more specifically Spotify, is changing the game for musicians.
In addition to making music, Wallach is also the official “Artist in Residence” at Spotify, a digital music service that allows music lovers to tap into their favorite music for free and then share it across social media platforms.
