About:

Paramore is a Grammy–nominated American band that formed in Franklin, Tennessee in 2004. After several lineup changes, Paramore now primarily consists of Hayley Williams (lead vocals/keyboard), Josh Farro (lead guitar/backing vocals), Jeremy Davis (bass), and Zac Farro (drums).

Influenced by the likes of Jimmy Eat World and Sunny Day Real Estate, frontwoman Hayley Williams and lead guitarist Josh Farro are the group's primary songwriters. In 2005, the group released their debut album All We Know Is Falling, gaining a fanbase through touring and internet promotion of the singles "Pressure" and "Emergency". By 2007, the band gained mainstream notoriety with their second album Riot!.

The first single, "Misery Business", has received wide radio airplay and allowed for MTV to feature the band in Artist of the Week segments during August 2007. With their early success, much attention is paid to the young age of the band members; their ages range from 17 to 22.
