Hayley Williams is a dynamic vocalist known for her work as the lead singer of Paramore as well as her own deeply emotive solo work. With her highly resonant voice, charismatic stage presence, and boldly candid artistic energy, Williams initially rose to prominence as a guiding light of the emo-centric pop-punk scene of mid-2000s, helping Paramore earn four Top 20 Billboard 200 albums, as well as a Grammy for the 2012 single “‘Ain’t It Fun.” Over the years, Williams and the band expanded their sound, embracing an increasingly genre-crossing blend of influences in a process that also found them paring down from a sometime-quintet to a trio, as on 2017’s sophisticated After Laughter. Away from Paramore, Williams has collaborated on equally diverse projects with artists like B.o.B, Zedd, and Chvrches. She is also the founder of hair color brand Good Dye Young. In 2020, Williams embarked on a solo career with her debut album, Petals for Armor.
Hayley Williams has announced her first-ever solo tour, behind her forthcoming solo debut PETALS FOR ARMOR. It’s set to begin in May with a performance at Melkwelg Max in Amsterdam on May 13, and will take the Paramore frontwoman through cities in Europe and North America.
