Paramore

With her trademark fiery red hair, fierce sound and bold style, Hayley Williams quickly became identifiable as a signature female figure in rock when she and her band Paramore entered the scene with their debut album, <i>All We Know Is Falling,</i> back in 2005. Before then, Williams got her start at a mere 13 years old in her hometown of Franklin, Tenn., where she began taking vocal lessons and performing regularly. In 2003, Atlantic recognized the singer’s undeniable talents and signed her as a solo artist. However, Williams had a singular vision in mind for her career and didn’t want to be shaped to fit the typical pop princess mold. As such, Atlantic moved Williams and the entire Paramore outfit -- bassist Jeremy Davis and guitarist Taylor York -- over to the rock label Fueled By Ramen. Since their 2005 debut, Paramore have followed suit with 2007’s <i>Riot!</i>, which went Platinum in the U.S., and their 2013 self-titled full-length, which was their first record to debut at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard charts.
