Justin Daniel York is a singer and guitarist who is the elder brother of Taylor York. He was born at Grantsburg (Wisconsin) in November 26, 1982. He is currently a tour member of Paramore.

Early YearsEdit

Justin York was originally born in Wisconsin, though he had moved to Nashville, Tennessee at the age of five. His entire family was Christian and was musically talented. He had followed in becoming a strong Christian and powerful musician. He had started to learn how to play the guitar with the help of his father who was already an expert guitarist (his name was Peter York). Justin had later followed in his father's footsteps and had learned to become a skilled guitarist. When he was a teenager, Justin had gotten his first chance to use his guitar skills to help make an album. He had accepted the request of Phil Joel, and he had played the guitar for his solo album. After this, Justin had played guitar for others - such as Steven Chapman, Joy Williams, Paul Alan, Rebecca James, & Sammy Ward. Justin had joined the band Tait when he was merely 19 years old, and had worked with them for many years.

Productions and Joining ParamoreEdit

Justin had left Tait in 2006 after five years of playing guitar with them for albums 'Empty' and 'Lose This Life'. About a year later, he had helped the band Over Ashes by co-producing their album. During 2006 to 2007, Justin had worked with Ryan Clark and Van Beasly on a side project that was named 'Cecil Adora'. The three announced that they were going on a hiatus at June 2008. The project was never touched after the hiatus was announced, as Ryan Clark joined Novel American a few years later.

Justin had later filled in for Paramore two times, and it was both for Josh Farro. During Paramore's Oceanic Tour, he had done it during February 2010. In the same year, he had helped the band 'Relient K' when the band was supporting Paramore on their Australian Tour in September. On December 30 (of 2010) during Paramore: The Last Word, it was revealed that he was again to replace Josh Farro on the South American Tour in 2011 after the departure of the Farro brothers (Josh and Zac). He became an official touring member after this.

Justin currently helps out Paramore with live performances such as the backing vocals of the song 'Still Into You' with Hayley Williams. He currently is not apart of any projects rather than performing with Paramore on his guitar.
