Already a powerhouse vocalist at the age of 13, Williams joined a band that the Farro siblings had formed with local guitarist Taylor York. She left the group soon after, signing with Atlantic Records as a solo artist instead, but clashed with the label over the direction of her music. Seeking to front her own band, Williams convinced Atlantic to let her piece together a full lineup. From the start, Paramore ‘s poppy melodies and zippy songwriting seemed to contradict the fact that none of the bandmates with the exception of Davis were older than To help attract a younger audience, Atlantic decided to share the band with Fueled by Ramen, a Florida-based label with a strong roster of emo-pop acts. Fueled by Ramen officially co-signed the group in April , and Paramore ‘s full-length debut, All We Know Is Falling , was released later that summer. Hunter Lamb replaced Bynum on guitar in December , and the band spent the following summer on the Warped Tour once again, cementing its relationship with the fans who had caught the previous summer’s shows. Lamb parted ways with the group in early to get married, and Paramore continued onward as a quartet. The following summer saw the release of the band’s sophomore album, Riot!
The hard-won liberation of Hayley Williams: ‘It wasn’t beautiful. It was painful’
Hayley Williams is perched on her sofa in Nashville, chatting about her debut solo album between cuddles with her goldendoodle, Alf. For Williams, the pandemic has been a roller coaster. Teletherapy, meds, meditation: How musicians with mental health issues are coping with corona anxiety. With concerts cancelled and album releases amiss, musicians with mental health issues are struggling with the stress and uncertainty from the COVID pandemic.
Like so many, right now, Williams struggles with the loneliness of isolation, except she has a potentially career-defining album about to drop whose fate has been made impossibly uncertain by the coronavirus. People are putting out rad art during all this.
They’re in each others social media posts/stories fairly often over the recent months, moreso than any other members of the band it seems, and Hayley at one.
By Ruth Styles For Dailymail. Living in the real world can be a harsh reality – as Hayley Williams of the band Paramore is now finding out. The lead singer is being slapped with a federal lawsuit by former bandmate and bass guitarist Jeremiah ‘Jeremy’ Davis, 31, over claims she refuses to pay him his cut of royalties and is also lying about who actually wrote their music.
Davis is suing for breach of contract and fraud. Scroll down for video. In court documents obtained exclusively by Daily Mail Online, Davis claims Williams, 27, and York, 26, agreed to share authorship of songs written for the self-titled album Paramore. He says he contributed to all 17 songs on the album and takes credit for the overall ‘funk style’ of the tracks – especially their biggest hit song Ain’t It Fun that reached number one on Billboard charts, sold more than 2 million copies and won a Grammy for Best Rock Song in However, court papers state Davis was not credited for any of the work he did on the album besides one ‘throw away’ song.
The lawsuit claims: ‘Plaintiff is not listed as a co-author of any musical compositions embodied on the album Paramore, with the exception of a partial, one-minute-ninety-second interlude entitled ‘Interlude: Holiday,’ which is only available as part of the liner notes included with a purchase of the entire Paramore album, but not individually purchased singles. Davis then goes on to blast Hayley in the court documents for publicly crediting him in interviews for his role on Ain’t It Fun but behind the scenes not giving credit to where credit is due.
The suit also says Davis has never been properly compensated for his co-authorship of the music and as a result he ‘suffered substantial monetary damages as a result of Defendants’ unlawful conduct, including, but not limited to, being excluded from participating in income arising from royalties, licensing, and other monies generated from the musical compositions and sound recordings embodied on the album Paramore.

When Becca Mancari moved to Nashville eight years ago, she got a job at a taco shop and set herself a goal to meet as many female musicians as she could. Little did she know, the two would go hand-in-hand. So I got thrown into that and oh my god, I met so many people there.
The friendship is also notable because on their latest albums, Jaime and The Greatest Part , both Howard and Mancari examine the duality of being queer, mixed-race woman in America. She credits Paramore drummer Zac Farro who produced the album for igniting the spark she needed to lean in and share the types of raw, emotionally charged memories that punctuate her songs. When Mancari played it live for the first time she had a number of people approach her afterwards to say they saw themselves in the song, and to thank her.

How Hayley Williams Saved Herself (and, BTW, Paramore)
But Paramore did more than just survive, springing back to life and flexing newly-developed songwriting muscles on their self-titled album, with Nine Inch Nails drummer Ilan Rubin deftly filling in on drums. It was an absolute smash, but Taylor York secretly wished his buddy Zac had been a part of it. Meanwhile, Zac was playing with other people and working on his own music, most notably indie pop band HalfNoise.
In June , Paramore fans hit fever pitch at news of Zac returning to the studio with Hayley and Taylor Jeremy Davis left the band in to record drums for a new album. His official return was announced in February and After Laughter was released in May. It felt like what we were creating had never been so close to what we were listening to and inspired by.
Through the computer screen, her coronavirus quarantine looked quiet, with a formidable table centerpiece plant in the background. Now 31, she will release her first solo album, Petals for Armor, under more hushed circumstances on May 8. This new phase of her career, she said in a video interview, has less to do with any changes to the status of the still-active band—however scrutinized those have been over its tenure—than a reconfigured approach to songwriting and performance that she wanted to explore.
As Paramore became a Warped Tour stalwart in the s, Williams became a leading avatar of the period for her captivating voice and open-hearted, infectious songwriting. The band eventually went multiplatinum and won a Grammy, and by then her electric performances and hairstyles—she now runs a vegan hair dye company called Good Dye Young—were already generational touchstones. Years of performing took a toll on Paramore and led to a somewhat extended break after they finished touring their album, After Laughter.
Williams found that writing under her name was a fitting outlet for both her newest work and a return to her earliest music. The result, on Petals for Armor, is a varied mix of sounds and styles that fuses a meandering looseness with emotional acuity. I’ve been through this, and I just need to get it out. In places, some of the delicate arrangements of Petals for Armor use softer textures than Paramore is known for, and her vocal approach is unhurried. She was able to effectively carry her voice over, for instance, into some big tent pop forays with Zedd and B.

A revolving door of members, bitter legal disputes and public spats — will the rock sensations be able to keep it together as they release their biggest album yet? Southern hospitality is no joke.

She could easily be mistaken for one of the modern country stars that flock to the city each year to record in its famed studios. Paramore formed when Williams was It seemed as if their sagas were finally coming to an end and a new era as a triumphant triumvirate had begun.
Two years ago, Davis quit the band and is currently suing them in federal court for a greater share of royalties and touring revenue. He claims that Williams agreed that the three of them would share authorship for all 17 songs on the last record. When it came down to it, Williams and York were credited as songwriters on every track with Davis only getting a credit on Interlude: Holiday, a second banjo ditty.
Taylor York has stuck by the band and, seven years after quitting, Zac Farro is now back in the fold. He passes the phone to me. He passes the phone to Williams. But how?
