1. This is Haim. They are three sisters from Los Angeles.
2. The name is pronounced like “HYME.” Not “HAYME.”

4. When they were younger they formed a family band with their parents and it was called Rockinhaim.
5. They dropped the “rockin” when they became Haim (with just the sisters) in 2006.

8. Este has a degree in ethnomusicology from UCLA.
