Originating from Franklin, Tennessee, USA, this pop punk outfit formed when Hayley Williams (27 December 1988, Meridian, Mississippi, USA; vocals) became friends with brothers Josh Farro (b. 29 September 1987, Franklin, Tennessee, USA; guitar/vocals) and Zac Farro (b. 4 June 1990, Franklin, Tennessee, USA; drums), having moved to Franklin with her family from Mississippi. Williams, at the time just 13 years old, was invited to join the brothers band, having shown obvious singing talent sand a strong desire to perform. Joined by friends Jeremy Davis (b. 8 February 1985, Franklin, Tennessee, USA; bass) and Jason Bynum (guitar), the band started writing and performing as Paramore, to begin with, in school talent contests, and then at local venues. Their youthful energy and enthusiasm, along with accomplished musical ability for their age, and Williams infectious charisma and powerful vocals, quickly attracted interest from several record companies.
