Who is Haley Willimas’ vocal coach?
Hi, I’m Haley Williams. I sing for a band called Paramore and I started seeing Ron about a year ago, almost a year ago when I was diagnosed with a soft polyp or nodule in my right vocal cord. And it was devastating because I didn’t think I would ever sing again. We had to cancel the beginning of our tour, like the first week, to just sort of figure out what our next move would be as far as my voice was concerned.
Of course (and when my voice rose) at the end of the week I saw Ron one time before the dates were meant to pick up back again. So I was really nervous about only seeing a new vocal coach one time and then going back on the road. I didn’t know how it would work, if my voice would comply. I didn’t have high expectations. And after one lesson I recorded it and took it with me.
My voice completely changed. My voice was healed. And I went back to the doctor afterwards and he, you know, he said: „It doesn’t even look like the same vocal cords”. It’s completely healed.Haley Williams about how her vocal coach Ron Anderson helped her heal
Haley Williams review of Ron Anderson coaching method
So it was really good news. I’ve been seeing Ron ever since and doing lessons on the road and off the road. And whether it’s by Skype or whether it’s recorded CDs or in person. They’re always incredible. I’ve always found it very hard to do lessons kind of my own because I worried if I did it right or not but Ron’s are… to me, I mean, it’s simple and it feels good on my throat. So I never have to really worry about whether or not I’m doing it in the right way, just… I can tell, I can feel it in my voice. So that’s… I think that’s what I like the most about this technique and about what I do with Ron. My voice is completely different now.
Everyone says it – the rest of the guys in my band, my friends and fans even… have said thanks to Ron my voice is changing and sounding a lot healthier on tour. So it’s an amazing gift and I’m very, very grateful for Ron.Haley Williams about her vocal coach Ron Anderson
Who is Hayley Willimas? The voice, charisma, and talent. „The great, orange, American hope”
Hayley Williams (born December 27, 1988) is an American songwriter and vocalist for a rock band Paramore. The group is known for the energetic, lively performances, and its frontman herself – for the extremely original wardrobe that she wears on the stage. Aside from her main group, the artist composes and leads a successful solo career. She records songs for movies and often collaborates with other artists.
Hayley has been worked with such formations as “Set Your Goals”, “Zedd and New Found Glory”, “The Chariot” and “October Fall”, among others. Hayley has an interesting voice, classified as a soprano. It has a four-octave range, which is considered as one of the widest ranges in rock bands. She is even able to sing in the whistle or flute register. The artist has the ability to instantly shift from low to very high notes. But Hayley can not only sing. She also plays instruments such as piano, keyboards, acoustic guitar, and drums.
From Mississippi to Tennessee to form her punk-pop band
Undoubtedly the story of Paramore would have turned out differently if Hayley had not moved as a teenager to Meridian, Tenessee in 2002. There she met brothers Josh and Zac Farro, who would later become members of Paramore line-up. From the beginning, Hayley was aware of the power of her voice. Therefore, she began to shape it early by taking professional voice lessons. It was also noticed by Dave Steunebrink and Richard Williams from the local art agency. They offered the singer a contract with Atlantic as a solo singer.
However, Haley has stated that she prefers to be part of a punk band. The label agreed, and Hayley formed her group, which included the Farro brothers and a fellow from „The Factory” band, Jeremy Davis. Hayley was only 16 at the time! However, it was just a warm-up before what was to come. Paramore recorded their first album “All We Know Is Falling” in June 2005.
Famous by Riot! Worldwide success and recognition.
The band’s second studio album, “Riot!”, was released in 2007. It remains a real breakthrough for the group. The record went platinum in the US and Ireland, and gold in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the UK. The band’s popularity grew, even more, when two of their songs (“Decode” and “I Caught Myself”) appeared on the soundtrack of the hugely popular movie “Twilight.” Prizes rained down on the group from all sides. Among others, the Teen Choice Awards 2009, where the group received the prize in the “Rock Group” and “Rock rack” categories.
Despite the revolutionary changes in the line-up, the band has been recording and performing to this day. And Hayley herself, in addition to her musical activities, created, among others, her own cosmetics line and her own company selling hair dyes. She is still recording with Paramore, and in May 2020 she released her first solo album (EP) “Petals For Armor I.”
