HAIM (3 sisters from LA)
Haim (pronounced HY-əm and stylized as HAIM) is an American pop rock band from Los Angeles, California. The band consists of three sisters, singers and multi-instrumentalists Este, Danielle and Alana Haim and drummer Dash Hutton. The group's pop sound on their studio work stands in contrast to the more rock-based music of their live shows.
The three sisters grew up in a musical family, and began playing instruments from an early age in cover bands with their parents. They began performing as Haim in 2007, but did not seriously consider a professional career for some years. Este graduated with a degree in Ethnomusicology, while Danielle became a successful touring guitarist with Jenny Lewis and The Strokes' Julian Casablancas solo tours. This led to reactivating Haim as a full-time operation in 2012.
The group's first release, an EP Forever released on a limited-time download, combined with a well-received reception at the South by South West festival, led to a deal with Polydor Records and a management deal with Jay-Z's Roc Nation group in mid-2012. The band began recording material for their first album, Days Are Gone, in between touring, including appearances at the Glastonbury Festival. Days are Gone hit the top ten in several countries, including number one in the UK, and the group won several "best of" awards by the end of 2013. As of 2014, they are recording their second album.Continue reading at Wikipedia... Wikipedia content provided under the terms of the Creative Commons BY-SA license
