Jeremiah "Jeremy" Clayton Davis (born in Little Rock, Arkansas) is the former bassist for the neutral-genre band Paramore. Born on February 8, 1985 (age 36), he was known as the oldest member of Paramore. He has done small projects for other artists, including rapper B.o.B.
At age 16, he had met lead singer Hayley when she signed up for a funk-cover band Davis was already in, The Factory. Introducing him to Josh and Zac Farro, Paramore was officially born. Before the release of All We Know is Falling, (the band's debut album) Davis had left due to personal reasons. During his departure, the band released this album, mostly about their aspects on Davis leaving and on the divorce of Williams's parents. While out of the band, Davis became a pizza deliverer and knife seller. Joining back before the recording of the band's second studio album, Riot!, he had once more left Paramore, this time being kicked out of the band due to worsening habits and lack of work ethic. Williams had later convinced the band to let him rejoin. Sadly, Davis departed from the band, once again which was announced on December 14th, 2015, leaving the band as a two-piece. The band's third studio album, brand new eyes, was released on September 29, 2009. Their fourth, self-titled album, Paramore, was released worldwide on April 9, 2013.
Departure from Paramore
On December 15, 2015, it was announced on Paramore's Facebook page that Davis once again left the band making Paramore a duo until Zac Farro returned making the band a trio.
In February 2016, Davis became embroiled in a legal battle with Williams and York, claiming writing credits and a portion of the royalties from Paramore's self-titled album, as well as a share of the band's touring revenue and other income. Varoom Whoa later claimed that Davis was merely an employee (as are Williams and York) of the company, the business entity that operates Paramore.
In April 2017, the lawsuit officially reached a settlement.
Jeremy's bass guitar equipment mostly consists of the Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass and the Gibson G3 bass guitar.
His Amplifiers mostly consist of Ampegs and Ashtowns.
His Pedals mostly consist of the MXR M288 Bass Octave Deluxe Effects and Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus.
From 2005-2008, Davis had been in a relationship with Sarah Orzechowski (now Sarah Urie). After their split, Davis had another relationship with Jesse Lee from 2008-2009. When their relationship had ended, Davis had met Kathryn Camsey (now Camsey-Davis) during the final months of 2009 at a hotel. The couple officially began dating on January 14, 2010, and the two got married on September 30, 2011. On December 28, 2013, at 7:16 PM, Camsey-Davis had delivered a baby girl weighing six pounds and fourteen ounces, named Bliss Belle Buttercup Davis. Jeremy Davis is now a SoundCloud rapper and is releasing his songs under the name JERM. Jeremy officially released his first solo album titled 'Grand Ole Opportunity' on May 7, 2021 under his own label, POST TRAP ENTERTAINMENT. The album has 20 tracks, icluding the singles 'Let Em Know', 'Ova-N-Ova', and 'Diggin Trenches'.
