In 2002, at the age of 13, vocalist Hayley Williams moved to Franklin, Tennessee, where she met brothers Josh Farro and Zac Farro while attending private school. Prior to forming Paramore, Williams and bassist Jeremy Davis took part in a funk cover band called The Factory, while the Farro brothers had practiced together after school.
Paramore was officially formed in 2004. The band’s first song written together was “Conspiracy”, which was later used on their debut album. The first line-up consisted of Hayley Williams (lead vocals), Josh Farro (lead guitar, backing vocals), Jason Bynum (rhythm guitar), Jeremy Davis (bass guitar), and Zac Farro (drums). In 2005 Jeremy Davis left the band for few months and it was temporarily replaced by John Hembree. In 2006, Jason Bynum was replaced by Hunter Lamb, who was also replaced by Taylor York in mid 2007.
