Josh Farro, born Joshua Neil Farro on September 29, 1987 (age 29), in Voorhees, New Jersey, and brother of drummer Zac Farro. He was Paramore's first lead guitarist and backing vocalist for Paramore. Josh and Zac left the band together, after months of thinking. Josh posted a message on Paramore.net stating he had become engaged, and was staying behind on the upcoming Pacific Rim Tour to plan his wedding and will be replaced by rhythm guitarist Taylor York's brother Justin York. He returned to Paramore for the ongoing Spring Tour. Josh and his brother left the band in mid-December, 2010.



Later that year, Josh announced the (self) title of his solo project, Farro. His first single "Color Rush" was released that November, along with another single "Cliffs". Farro independently released his debut album "Walkways" on February 5, 2016, and has announced a mini tour in support of the album.

Personal lifeEdit

Josh and Hayley Williams dated for three years, but broke up in the fall of 2007 because they felt it would interfere with the music. He then briefly dated a girl named Tabitha, then a girl named Jenna Rice. On April 3, 2010, he married Jenna. The band was invited to the wedding.

After the messy split with Paramore, the band released "Monster" - granting them a passive agressive tweet from Josh regarding it. Paramore's latest album was a complete success in the charts and it was well received by critics, so nowadays Farro goes on interviews saying that he doesn't have hard feelings about them anymore.
