Band form

2007

Haim (formed 2007) Haim is a pop rock band involving three sisters, Este, Danielle, and Alana Haim. Their drummer is Dash Hutton. Their famous hits include "The Wire" and "Don't Save Me".

Formation: The trio was raised in a very musical family environment. Their parents often let them play instruments with them in their cover bands. Although they began performing as a group in 2007, they didn't see it as a potential professional career path for some years. Este Haim was doing a degree in Ethnomusicology, which she achieved, whilst sister Danielle was touring with Jenny Lewis, and Julian Casablancas (Strokes Frontman).

Musical Career: Haim's first EP release, 'Forever', landed them a deal with Polydor Records, and a management deal with Jay-Z's Roc Nation group. Haim went on to record their first album, Days Are Gone. Whilst recording, Haim were touring, which included performances at the Glastonbury Festival. Haim's album went to number 1 in the UK charts, as well as being in the top 10 in several other countries. In 2013, Haim won numerous "Best Of" awards. In 2014, Haim began recording their second album.

Sister act Haim opened up about their disgust at being paid a huge amount less than their male counterparts at one festival, and how it led to them getting rid of their agent.

This is still a world where men are at the forefront, so when it comes to girl groups like Haim trying to get a foot in the door of the music industry, there are plenty of obstacles in their path. In fact, at one unnamed festival, they claimed to have discovered a fellow male artist (presumably of the same popularity) was getting paid ten times more than them.
