Stream Energy’s commitment to the Texas community.

Stream Energy has been one of the most consistent supporters of community projects. They have always endeavored to create a relationship with every community they serve, and with this, they have been able to integrate seamlessly in a number of areas. Their commitment to community projects saw them establish Stream Cares. This is an independent wing of Stream Energy that focuses full time on the company’s philanthropic causes. By establishing a company that is entirely focused on the same they ensured that the employees dedicated to the same would have the full mandate of the company to establish causes that were close to the heart of the company and dedicate all their time and resources at their disposal to the same. Over the years Stream energy through Stream Cares has been able to join the Texas community in a number of projects as well as disaster management efforts.

After Hurricane Harvey made landfall, it left a lot of damage in its path. This would be followed by up to forty inches of rain an amount that compares to what some areas in the country receive annually. The rain came with a lot of flooding and with that the misery that Harvey had brought was compounded. Those that were unlucky to be in the areas where it made landfall were affected in a big way with the loss of life, property, and destruction of crucial infrastructure taking place. Harvey meant that most residents needed help and this is where Stream Energy would step in. The company organized to join the relief efforts that were already taking place and at the same time started to mobilize resources that included food and medication for those affected by the hurricane and floods. After rescue efforts were complete Stream Cares knew that those left behind would need as much help as they could get. With this in mind, they once again mobilized resources to start rebuilding what was once a beautiful and thriving neighborhood. As the days went by their efforts begun to emerge as the restoration process took shape. Stream Energy is determined to continue impacting this community even in days to come.

In the Wake of Success, Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart Struggle to Fine Themselves

The Chainsmokers have already released a new single for 2018 and it is called “Sick Boy”. Possessing a catchy tune, the masterful soundscapes the duo is known for, and that catchy beat it is easy to see the song as typical EDM. “Sick Boy” is anything but that. The song carries a serious message, on that focuses on our present society. Specifically, the song points a finger at social media and says, “Bad”. The song touches on the dependency for social media, the pressure it creates, and how it traps identity. The song alludes to the frustration of celebrity in the thrall of overexposure on social media. It is the latest incarnation in the duo’s quest to form their identity, and it will be part of a series that carries a darker tone than their previous music. Alex Pall was interviewed recently and spoke about the groups decision to change their sound.

“We decided early on that we did not want to make dance music anymore” Pall stated. Both he and Taggart have gone on record many times with this claim. It is evident in their style that the duo has worked hard to separate themselves from typical EDM. For one thing Andrew Taggart has been singing lead vocals since the 2016 release of “Closer”. Most EDM bands leave vocalization up to other artists, preferring to remain behind the booth. Pall and Taggart on the other hand are trying to leave the booth behind. The duo is also heavily involved in the songwriting aspect of their work. “We meet every day and work on our identity as artists,” Pall says, “We are very observant about what is going on around us”. The news direction the Chainsmokers are taking is born out of a desire to produce something with substance. Pall stated that he did not want to make an album of eclectic dance tunes, but rather a connected body of work. As the Chainsmokers are still relatively young to the mainstream, having been relevant for only four years now, the duo is still struggling to find themselves.
