Update...

Hey guys,




    I wanted to give you all an update on what's going on in my life lately. Plus its been a while since I've blogged so I figured I would today. 
    What's new? Well, I am sure you all have read/seen through twitter or instagram that the cat, Luna, I rescued just had 9 kittens! Its so awesome to see how God designed pregnancy, birth, and life's beginning stages . The fact that Luna knows when to nurse or to lick their little butts to make sure they "go to the bathroom" amazes me. I don't know how people say there is no God when they see something like this take place. So, we are watching the kittens slowly grow up eventually to give them away to good homes. Of course, Bagheera (our inside cat) hates the kittens. This is HIS house and he doesn't want any other cat to come near it or he will hiss and growl haha!
    Zac, Ryan, and I are still praying fervently for a lead singer to come along which we definitely know that the Lord will answer that prayer if it is His will.  It does get tough waiting though. A lot of times we feel very counter-productive because we can't do much without vocals on a song. But, one thing I do know is that once we do find that right person we are going to have a awesome time creating music again and playing shows. That's pretty much it on the band front. 
    I have been cutting a lot of my friends hair lately... it's pretty interesting. I really enjoy it! I probably have almost 8 "regulars" now which sounds so funny. It's just a hobby but who knows maybe one day I will open up my own barber shop. That would be pretty cool.
    Well,  that's pretty much all that's going on in my life right now. I am extremely blessed by Jesus who has given me an amazing wife, awesome family and friends, and an incredible church home. You would not believe what Jesus is doing amongst all of us here in Franklin spiritually. Life is good y'all. I will keep you all updated on the music side of things, hopefully it will take off sooner than later.


God bless you all,


Josh

  1. Will you cut my hair? hahaha
    I love your passion for your cats. It's so cute.
    and I really can't wait to hear the NA music!

    1. this person has a very good idea ....... u guys shud just go an audition vocalist u might be surprised on how much real talent there is out there

      Delete
    2. well... i also think you should hold auditions for a new vocalist there are a lot of really talented people out there.When i figured out you guys broke up didn't no what to say but as much as i loved your songs especially Playing God, that's one of my favorites, i realized no matter how great the songs are it dose not mean the band is perfect together i just hope your happy with this breakup but i suggest you listen to emergency one more time i really think she did care.I think you should give her one more chance im sure you enjoyed making songs and preforming them with her. Just think back is it really worth it.Oh and please please look at my website and comment on it. That would just mean the world to me please.(http://emillystork246.wix.com/starlight80

  3. It's nice to hear how you're getting on :)

    Good luck with all the cats and finding a vocalist! I think if my cat had to put up with kittens that weren't hers she'd flip out.
    Hairdressing is an interesting hobby. My friend cuts my hair and she's the only person I'd trust to do it!

    Anyways, good luck. Hope to hear more updates from you soon :)

  8. Josh, i just want to say this. i know you've been getting alot of flack on twitter for your outward proclaimation of being a follower of Jesus and i just want to say thank you for not chickening out from being bold. I love that fact that you aren't ashamed. its encouraging. I support you!

  10. I love to read how God is continuing to bless you guys. I wish I could sinful for you guys because I would ;) However; God will bring you all someone and I love how you humbly say if it is his will. Luke 12:48 says "New International Version (©1984)
    But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked." God is calling you guys for greater things to do his will ;) love you Gus and continue to stay encouraged.

  11. do you want an 18 year old girl majoring in commercial voice (contemporary singing) at belmont to be your lead singer!?!?!?! hahaha i think i already know the answer but it was worth a shot :P

    ReplyDelete
  12. JOSH!!!! You are awsome!!
    May God bless you! and may you find as soon as possible the right lead singer for your band!!
    Bagheera rocks :P haha!!
    Jesus' with you! ..

  13. keep walking dude. it's good to know that you're happy, that's the spirit! good vibes for yall

    ReplyDelete
  14. What about doing instrumental songs? You can still look for a singer, but waiting wouldn't be so tough, right? :)
    (Just giving ideas!)
    By the way, those kittens must be so cute!

    Lu.

    P.S: Can you post pictures of the haircuts you're doing to your friends?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Have you considered why you guys don't have a vocalist yet is because maybe the Lord doesn't want you guys to have one?

    I mean you have gone and claimed the last band that you were in is a christian band and yet there's many, many interviews, articles and videos of you yourself saying yourself that Paramore was not a christian band. After the sh** hit the fan, you did a 180 degree turn and said otherwise.

    How do we really know that you are being sincere about you faith and how it affect the viewpoints you want to express and talk about? Heck, I wonder if you are saying all of this to try to pull off something like Cartman did "Faith + 1" haha. And I wonder too if there's plenty of people in the christian music biz who are wondering the same thing about you also (if you are trying to break into that scene).

  16. weve been waiting for this one as a big,big fan of you we just want you to know how happy we are...cant wait for N.A songs..

  17. Really hope that NA find a good singer

  20. Hi Josh!
    That is good to know you well and is moving forward. God bless you always! I cheer the goal that you are able to find a singer for the band.
    Continue always in search of God and the Kingdom of Heaven in the first place and are absolutely sure that, when God's time, he will bless you with the band's vocalist.
    Keep it up! Do not give up your dreams.

    ReplyDelete
  21. What about maybe releasing a few instrumental songs until you find a singer? Sownbones is purely instrumental and I love listening to it

    ReplyDelete
  22. Totally agree with 'mr-raccoon'.. "How do we really know that you are being sincere about you faith and how it affect the viewpoints you want to express and talk about?"

  23. Hey Josh, thanks for the update :) I would love to adopt one of those little kittens but I am many miles away from Nashville. A friend of mine had kittens for a bit last year. I have never seen them so small before! It truly is a remarkable sight. Not as much fun when they start climbing over everything :)

    Blessings on you! Which church do you attend? Today I began a new ministry position! I'm the Next Generations Pastor at a really sweet church. I feel so blessed :) Keep in touch!

    ReplyDelete
  24. That is so good for you, Jenna and Luna! I'm happy for all of you :)
    What are you guys going to do with the kittens?

    It's funny, because I'm in the same situation as you in regards to a band. I'm a vocalist, but I can't come across any otter musicians to at least get something started! Haha. I have a strong feeling that making music is my calling in life, and that God has given me the gift in my passion for music and skills in the arts.

    I'm not sure if it means much, but if you really are looking for a singer, I wouldn't mind getting in contact if you all are interested. It's worth asking, I mean..you can't help what you don't know. You know what I mean? But who knows. God works in mysterious ways. hillardbrandonv@gmail.com, just in case you want or need it.

    I wish you the best in all you do!

  34. Well, your spark never lit up the fire
    Though we tried and tried and tried
    The wind came through your lungs
    A hurricane from your tongue

    The anger, the anchor
    I’ll sail more further on

  35. then i will be your lead vocalist. :> hihi. may i?

  36. Hi Josh,
    It's Caroline. I'm the girl who you let stand side stage in San Jose, CA last September, the one who gave you and your wife wedding presents and stuff, who always talked to you at shows. I just wanted you to know that I miss you and your brother so much. If you ever doubt that you've affected people's lives know that you've affected mine more than you will ever know. Paramore WAS my favorite band, but now that you're gone I really don't care any more. You've taught me to listen to my heart, to believe myself, to go after what I want and achieve it no matter what. I've explored faith and religion because of our talk about it on the No Doubt tour. I beleive in you and your brother so much and I pray that you guys will find a vocalist because I'm a little lost without you guys to be honest. You and Zac have truly touched my life so much and I really hope to see you guys again some day to thank you for all you've done.

  38. Hey Josh

    Well i sure hope you will xD
    Anyways no matter how long it takes we are all going to wait for it :)
    All good wishes from Bulgaria.

  39. I'll be praying that God would provide you all with a lead singer, and that if it is His will for you to not have one, that His plan for the use of your talents would be made apparent in His timing with patience from you all. It's beautiful knowing that God has a plan for everything.

  42. Good day Josh! Can you cut my hair? Haha! I friggin love your hairstyle men. Hope to see you soon here in the Phil. God bless ya'll!

  43. I must say that, from his departure and his brother Zac Farro, I did not know which way I would if I had to choose one side or not was definitely confused, after finding a band that I synchronized, I felt happy, you spend an infectious energy is not only shake his head back and forth jumping, screaming, rock and roll, finally haha, I felt like a needle in a haystack with the change in the Paramore, but all the choices that we want and you and your brother did his and I will support their luck today with your family cat, the new band, which is good like, I will support the happiness, the performance, when Paramore is adapting, rebounding, passing and I will not abandon any of you, I thought I should say that.
    I hope God will guide them in what he thinks is his will, and rely on your application too.
    Thanks for reading this text?! Ha''hope not have taken much time '= D

  44. Josh!
    I know you probably get millions of these but I was wondering if you remembered me? Everytime I met the band you and I seemed to really hit it off. If it helps jogs your memory (talk about feeling really old using that phrase). At my last meet and greet I gave you a book called "Chasing Daylight" and well a total of three vinyls.

  45. THIS IS JUST SO FUNNY JOSH!:))
    Tony: If you were trapped on a desert island with no food, which band member would you eat first?
    Hayley: Oh. [bursts out laughing]
    Josh: Zac, Zac.
    Hayley: Yeah, Zac. I would.
    Josh: He's just so jolly he seems like he'd taste the best.
    Hayley: [still laughing and agreeing]
    Josh: That's my brother. I'd eat my brother. That's really gross though.
    Tony: At least you admit it.
    Josh: Yeah.

    Tony: If you could be a flavor of ice cream, what would you be and why?
    Josh: Like what flavors? Chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry?
    Tony: Anything.
    Hayley: Anything. Mmm, something Starbucks.
    Josh: I would be the O'Charlie's Caramel Pie.
    Hayley: Ohh! That's so good, yeah.
    Josh: That's my favorite.
    Tony: Why?
    Josh: Because it tastes so good. And…I taste so good.
    Hayley: Aw! [laughing]

  47. I wish to be Jenna :D So that everytime I sing, my husband would play a guitar for me, and enjoy and make good music together - music which we would offer to God.. i can sing but i would also like to play different styles with my violin, along with your mad guitar skills. Then our children would be talented musicians, may it be classical, rock, any kind. Our family would have a band, we would be playing on the basement along with our kids during their school breaks. Sorry Josh if it annoys you. :|

    To Jenna, forgive me for dreaming this big. this wouldn't happen anyway :)

    Thanks for the inspiration. I would love to hear you scream in NA. Your passion and talent never fail to make my day. :D

    (may i be your vocalist? -yes, i am the same anon who commented "then i will be your lead vocalist. :> hihi. may i?" haha sorry for that.but i think i'm serious.idk. in God's will maybe i would get to meet you someday.)

    Hi Josh,

    I'm glad to read your news and you know I wish you and your bro all the best.

    But God it doesn't feel so good, cause I don't got you where I'd want you now.

    I'm watching your wildest dreams come true, but not one of them involves your old fans.

    We're still waiting for you. We'll hopelessly always do.

    Cause we are broken. What must we do to restore our innocence and all the promise we adored? Give us life again, we just wanna be whole.

    Have a nice time.
    We're praying too, praying that you come back.

  68. It encourages and inspires me that you glorify God so much in your blog posts. I'm happy that you're doing great! :) I definitely will be checking on your new band. Stay blessed!

    ReplyDelete
  69. @mr-raccoon Sorry but I think you're incorrect. Josh always mentioned while in Paramore that they were Christians however that they're not a christian band. He said that being christian would influence their music because it is a big part of their lives however he said that that doesn't mean that they're "out to preach to kids" and that they just wanna make good music. So the argument that Josh had contradicted himself is not correct. I hope not to initiate a debate with you I would just like you to do some research before making accusations.

    You should get YVONNE MARDER as your lead singer. She is a great vocalist and is very marketable. She used to be in the band Renfue.

  74. Josh and Zac,

    I had been listening to Paramore for awhile when I heard the news of your fallout with the band. Behind the times, I know ...

    I don't know if the word of a minister will encourage you, but I am glad that you two got out. I loved your music there. And I am glad that you stood up for what you felt was right. Conviction is more important than success, any day.

    I am fully convinced more than ever that the record industry is not interested in great music, as it is in great marketing and sales. Clearly, you two felt as if you weren't important in the band, and when lead singers don't shore up behind the men and women in their band that makes the music possible, that is something that can't be blamed on you guys. Nothing makes my skin crawl more than when powerful organizations use people to make themselves rich. Don't be fooled folks, Hayley (and Paramore?) may be successful, but Atlantic records can shut her down in the blink of an eye ...

    Rock on for Jesus (using words if necessary). Shine light in dark places, especially in places of oppression.

    - AC

  77. Good to hear you're doing well, hopefully your brother is well too: I always looked up to you two in particular whenever I saw Paramore perform, and I could tell you guys were coming from a good heart. It's very sad how the music industry can grind people into a pulp...it's so depressing watching interviews with Haley now, she seems so down all the time now. It's simply not fair what's happened, period :(

    ReplyDelete
  78. Josh, you're such an encouragement! Thanks for standing up for your faith. It's awesome to see that coming from a guy that was made famous from a secular band. Love it. =]

  80. Não sei se lerão isso, mas se querem um vocal e estão buscando uma direção, só o Espirito Santo pra mostrar o vocal certo, pergunte pra ele, peça pra ele procurar, eu admiro muito como ser famoso não atingiu a fé de vocês, e isso toca muito nas pessoas, parabéns por se deixarem ser um instrumento pra Deus, eu admiro muito você e o Zac.. Deus abençõe.. Felicitações de uma Brasileira..

    ReplyDelete
  81. What is the style of your band? I've only heard snippets here and there on youtube. I've been tracking you and Zac since you left Paramore and would be the vocalist in your band if I knew more about it and the direction you're heading with it.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Josh, and I guess Zach too.

    I just want to say that I miss you guys a lot. I know you won't listen to a single word I say after this sentence, but hear me out. Get back together with Paramore.

    First I would love to start off by addressing your faith. You talk a lot about God and how it's such a huge part of your life. Bull shit. If you were a true believer in God, you would know what forgiveness is and be able to forgive your former band mates. Forgive Hayley and Jeremy. That is probably the biggest act and form of God. If Taylor was able to do it, why can't you guys? I would also like to state that I'm also a Christian. There's been a lot of shit in my life that I have to live through and forgive. I never run away from my problems, but rather I face them to become stronger. I learn to love and forgive.

    Also, being in the band Paramore is a sign from God. It is your purpose in life to be a part of this band. If not, then why are you a guitarist? Why are your musical talents currently being wasted as you wait for another person to show up? Hayley WAS that person. And you shouldn't get caught up in what happened in the past and never should take it seriously. Business is business, and it sucks shit. Your thoughts of Hayley and Jeremy trying to take over the band are false. It's purely marketing, nothing personal. Managers have to find ways to create a marketable band for society to like. Hayley was the key, she was the voice, the one to bring Paramore out of the darkness and into the light. Without her, Paramore wouldn't be what it is today. As sad as reality is, the band is nothing without its lead singer. Why do you think musicians like Journey, Gotye, Bee Gees, Jimmy Eat World, Josh Groban, and so forth are so memorable? Yes because of the musical style, but most importantly their voices. People remember the voices. God meant to have you play guitar in the band Paramore and Hayley be the voice of the band. If not, why did you meet her in the first place? Along with Jeremy, he's a hell of a bassist.

    1. It's wild how much I totally agree with everything you say. A lot of the stuff that's gone on isn't very Christian. I'm not a follower myself because I don't want to associate myself with hypocrites like this, but I do believe in the values and moral teachings of Christianity. Most people who follow a religion don't actually enact the principles properly.

    2. Thank God that Christianity is full of hypocrites! If God didn't use hypocrites to build the Church then we wouldn't feel welcome at all! The power of the gospel ("the good news") is that Christ alone was the only one not to be a hypocrite or sinner and gives us his record then pays for us. Dude rules.

  83. I want to conclude by saying how faithful I am to Paramore. Just like every other fan, I'm a diehard Paramore fan, collect all of the studio albums, and am upset with this stupid band break up, even today. You and your new band “Novel American” aren't going anywhere, and Paramore is still there for you. If I were you, I would face my fears and continue my passion for music by rejoining with Paramore. It's never too late to change one's mind. (Sorry, got a little off topic there). Most importantly, the lyrics you and Hayley write are like magic. I can relate to every single word you guys create and perform. I've listened to your songs through the good and the bad times. I'm even pissed off because it's so difficult to download your guys demos such as Hello Hello, Love Sick Melody, everything! Just the things you and Zach create with Paramore brings more meaning to my life. Your guys’ musical talents along with Paramore’s musical talents are…. I don’t even know how to describe it. It’s that influential.

    I know you don't see it, OR IT'S NOT THE "TRUTH", but I feel like God meant to put you, Zach, Taylor, Jeremy, and Hayley together. If not, why would this many people be upset with you and Zach. Why would the lyrics you and Hayley create be meaningful to the whole world? Why do you have the musical talents that you have now? Why aren't you going anywhere in your current music career? I've been waiting to hear from your new band for a while now.

    From one Christian to another, you should never use God as a shield, but more of a way to strengthen your life. You guys were all young and were probably going through a lot of stuff, so forgiveness is always key.

    Thank goodness I finally posted about my feelings, because it's been eating the hell outta me for a while. Well there ya go Farro brothers. I don't care whether you care to read this or not, just want to let you guys know FINALLY how I feel about you both leaving the band.

    Cheers.

    1. Josh should listen to "Emergency" again and realize that she really loved him.

    2. They could be friends but this whole thing is very small and un-Christian.

    1. As someone new to the faith I have a hard time reconciling people's gratitude to God for finding themselves in a position where they have so much more than they need, when there are so many people who live in his word and stay true to their faith and live a life of misery and poverty and rely on the kindness and generosity of those who were blessed not with food or shelter or security but with fame and fortune far beyond what one would ever need. I don't understand why God chooses to bless some people in such a disproportionate manner

  88. Well I can't believe how you think it is because of the Christian God and Jesus that animals have instincts? Has it ever occurred to you that you are Christian because that happens to be the faith of your family? What if you were born in Pakistan? Would you be a Christian then? Ever heard about critical thinking? The world isn't in one particular way just because you believe so.

  89. Before today, I had only heard "The Only Exception" by Paramore, and now I think I've played it a total of 1,000 times on my guitar and I might play it for some talent show thing. So I assumed this was Paramore's average genre, and I found "Brand New Eyes". "Ignorance", "Careful", and "Playing God" really made me sad. I was sad that Hayley had compromised her faith for the sake of music. At least, that's how I see it.
    I know you're probably sick and tired of hearing about Paramore stuff, but I just wanted to say that I am very proud of you and your brother for following the Lord and leaving the band. So I guess I'm done now... and sorry that this is like two years after the whole Paramore thing. :/ Sorry.

    Praying for you to find a vocalist,
    Jenna.

  92. When i figured out you guys broke up didn't no what to say but as much as i loved your songs especially Playing God, that's one of my favorites, i realized no matter how great the songs are it dose not mean the band is perfect together i just hope your happy with this breakup but i suggest you listen to emergency one more time i really think she did care.I think you should give her one more chance im sure you enjoyed making songs and preforming them with her. Just think back is it really worth it.Oh and please please look at my website and comment on it. That would just mean the world to me please.(http://emillystork246.wix.com/starlight80)

  97. Hey BBY!

    My english is really bad, but I just to say I MISS YOU!! I know that the situation about paramore and you are older and maybe you´ve been forgotten and that´s is really good! But Paramore never will be the same without you. I missed you when they came back to Mexico City. By the way, I just to say thank you for all the songs when Paramore was TOGETHER. I love you and I hope to know about you. =)

  101. You guys are SO lucky that as already privileged white Americans god has chosen YOU to bless in such a wonderful way! I'm sure he will send you a vocalist sometime between sprinkling a few random blessings on orphaned HIV+ kids in third world countries. But I respect the fact that he recognises your commitment to him enough to shuttle you up that priority list! God bless America!
