The alternative pop rock band Paramore began playing music together in the early 00’s when their main members were still in high school. They’re debut album All we know is Falling was released in 2005 and it instantly gave them a devoted fan base. In 2007 they released their sophomore album Riot with hits like Misery Business and CrushCrushCrush that thrusted them into super stardom.
In 2009 their third album Brand New Eyes was released but with it came hardships. The band started experiencing some turmoil when founding members Josh and Zac Farro decided to leave the band after creative differences and frustration that had been building through the years.
The ParaFamily wondered what this would mean for the beloved band. In 2013 the now 3 piece (Haley Williams, Jeremy Davis, and Taylor York) returned with their 4th album self titled Paramore. The album was their first album to give them a number one spot on the Billboard top 100. The same album earned them the right to headline shows in Madison square Garden. One of the singles off the album Ain’t it Fun scored the band their very first Grammy. After nearly 10 years the band was getting the success they had worked so hard to achieve and it was rightfully deserved.
Anybody that has been following the band from the beginning knows that it’s tough being a Paramore fan sometimes but it’s a ride that has always being worth it. You know what they say though with good comes hardships and tonight that couldn’t be more true
Paramore recently put out an official statement on their Facebook page that you can read here
In the statement it reads that long time Bass player Jeremy Davis will be leaving the band. The band continues to say that regardless of how hard this may be they feel that Paramore will continue to make music.
Jeremy Davis has been a part of Paramore since the early days but left the band before their debut album was released because he didn’t feel he was ready for fame. He returned in 06 and has been with the band since. In 2013 his wife Cat Davis gave birth to their daughter Bliss Buttercup Davis so really this choice to leave the band doesn’t come as much as a surprise to us.
As long time Paramore fans we here at TrevorDecker.com feel bittersweet about the announcement but at the same time wish Jeremy and his family nothing but blessings and fully support his decision.
To Hayley and Taylor we also wish them well and look forward to what the future holds for Paramore

Hillsong Worship Wins First-Ever Grammy Award
Hillsong Worship won its first GRAMMY® Award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song for their genre-smashing single, “What A Beautiful Name” that continues to be the fastest growing song in modern church history (112 million views on YouTube). The category, created in 2015, recognizes both songwriters and performers. “What A Beautiful Name,” recorded in 2016, was written by the worship collective‘s Brooke Ligertwood (formerly Brooke Fraser) and Ben Fielding who represented the group in accepting the award, which was among those handed out on-stage during the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards at Madison Square Garden in New York on Sunday, Jan. 28, 2018. The song won out over competing selections from Casting Crowns, Natalie Grant, and MercyMe.
“We are so thrilled that a song about the Name who is most dear to us was honored with a GRAMMY award this year!,” Ligertwood, who accepted the award with Fielding on stage inside Madison Square Garden, New York, ahead of the main ceremony, said.
“We feel humbled by the opportunity to represent our wider team and church at such a prestigious occasion that rightly celebrates all music. The reach and impact of ‘What a Beautiful Name‘ has been encouraging and truly and honor. We seek to write songs that can genuinely connect the hearts of people with the heart of God through worship, and the connection this song seems to have made can only be by the grace of God.”
“No matter how far or close you feel to God or no matter how great the distance His love is greater, His name is more powerful, more wonderful, more beautiful than any other,” Fielding said.
“With a 25+ year legacy of writing and recording songs for believers everywhere, we recognize that we are walking on a path foraged by the dedicated and devoted songwriters and worship leaders building our team, church and this legacy before us, which began with our pastors Brian and Bobbie Houston, and their fearless commitment to the new song and the next generation,” Ligertwood added.
With more than 20 million career album sales and over 1.5 billion career streams, Australia-based Hillsong Worship has helped shape praise & worship over the last two decades through its catalog of songs that continue to be sung by an estimated 50 million churchgoers worldwide each week. Their award-winning single “What A Beautiful Name” spent nine consecutive weeks at #1 atop the National Christian Audience radio chart and remains the #1 most consumed track in Christian music. Concurrently, the single was named Billboard’s No. 1 Hot Christian Song of the Year topping its Hot Christian Songs chart (which blends airplay, streaming and sales data) on Feb. 25, holding strong in the No. 1 position for 34 weeks (through the chart dated Feb. 3, 2018).
“From the early days of Hillsong Church, having an environment that encourages the new song has been part of our DNA,” adds Brian Houston, global senior pastor of Hillsong Church. “It is humbling that these songs frequently resonate across the globe and I don’t think it’s a coincidence that a song that is all about the name which is above every other name, the name of Jesus, is the song that has been honored this year with a GRAMMY Award win. Congratulations to Brooke and Ben for writing such a beautiful and heartfelt song.”
With unprecedented record sales and numerous award accolades, Hillsong Worship continues to impact millions worldwide with its chart-topping catalog of songs.
Their recent GRAMMY Award win accompanies a host of other honors bestowed this past year including being named Billboard’s Top Christian Artist of 2017 as well as its Top Christian Duo/Group.
