PureVolume recently interviewed Hayley Williams of Paramore and they talked about the band's new self-titled album (in stores tomorrow), the Farro Brothers, and the solo career that never was.
And to be honest with you, there’s no way that ‘Hayley Williams’ would be around as long as Paramore's been around—it just would never work. I think people want what’s real and what’s genuine, and what’s genuine for me is being the singer of this band. Selling my name on a billboard or on the cover of a CD? That just wouldn’t be me. And I just don’t think that ‘Hayley Williams’ would have survived on her own.
I wonder if "the other two" are actually signed to the record deal. I remember before something about only Hayley being signed (when Farros were still around), and the others were basically just paid as employees. Curious if that has changed now.
