Paramore’s founder, songwriter, keyboardist, and frontwoman, Hayley Williams, posted a story on her Instagram account which featured Billie Eilish and the secret hero who is responsible for Paramore’s fame.
Hayley Williams is known for her successful career as the frontwoman of Paramore and this year she released her debut solo album ‘Petals for Armor,’ which she characterized as indie-pop experimental. Her album achieved critical acclaim and Hayley was awarded as the ‘Best Alternative‘ artist in the MTV EMA awards.
However, this doesn’t mean that she forgot all about Paramore. In fact, in her recent Instagram story, Hayley reposted a photo posted by Billie Eilish and thanked the person who helped Paramore reach national and international fame.
John Janick is one of the most well-known record executives of the United States. He is also the chairman and CEO of Interscope Geffen A&M Records, which is an umbrella label owned by Universal Music Group and consists of Interscope Records, Geffen Records, and A&M Records.
As you may know, John Janick was the executive producer that Paramore worked with but they were not the only band that Janick helped become famous. He has also worked with Panic! At The Disco, Bruno Mars, Billie Eilish, Imagine Dragons, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Lady Gaga, and many more.
Recently, Billie Eilish posted the cover of Billboard magazine’s new issue which features herself, John Janick, Selena Gomez, and DaBaby, who are all Janick’s clients. Billie congratulated Janick for being Number 1 and thanked him for his hard work.
Hayley reposted Billie Eilish’s photo and also thanked Janick for putting Paramore on the map. She said that if it weren’t for John Vanick and a few others, no one would have heard of Paramore. She also said that she’s proud of him and that her gratefulness for this man is endless.
Here’s what Hayley Williams said in her Instagram story:
“If it weren’t this man and a select few others, nobody would know Paramore. So proud of him and endlessly grateful.”
