And things soon started to take shape when the then 14-year-old Hayley was discovered and introduced to ‘Atlantic Records’ who wanted to kick start her career as a solo artist. But since it was her big dream to be part of a pop punk band, Hayley decided to decline the offer and went on to form her very own band, Paramore.

This vibrant singer and her eccentric, fun band has even made it to the #1 spot on the ‘Billboards’ and has even bagged a ‘Grammy’s’ for the Best Rock Song category.
