The Fray Background
The Fray rose to
fame the old-fashioned way: with grassroots beginnings that garnered them a following through local shows and word of mouth.
This Denver-based band formed in 2002 when old schoolmates Isaac Slade and Joe King reconnected and started writing songs
together. Their soulful and honest songs attracted two of Slade's old band mates, Zach Johnson and Ben Wysocki, who completed
the quartet. All of the band members got their musical start in churches, where they helped lead worship. This common ground
created a strong unity among the group, and also had a huge influence on their music. Despite their religious background,
the members of The Fray are adamant about not classifying the band as a Christian band. Rather, they focus on creating great
rock songs that have universal appeal because of their honesty.
The band started to play local shows in Denver, gradually
amassing a dedicated following. After releasing a couple of EPs, they decided to send a demo of "Cable Car" to local radio
stations. A KTCL radio show heard the song sand fell in love with its melodic rock vibe and meaningful lyrics. As "Cable Car"
began to get more and more airplay, the band renamed it "Over My Head (Cable Car)" and fans everywhere fell in love with this
In 2005, The Fray released their debut album, How to Save a Life, and it quickly started making its way onto
the music charts, and "Over My Head (Cable Car)" became the fifth most downloaded single in 2006. From there, The Fray's success
only grew, as they continued to release new and strikingly beautiful albums that swept fans off their feet around the world.
In addition to creating new music, the band toured often to the delight of their fans. This year, The Fray is heading back
onto the touring trail and bringing their authentic and genuine music to a city near you. Grab your tickets from StubHub to
watch this Denver rock band perform live!
How to Save a Life was released in 2005, and by
2006, it had made its way onto the Top 40 chart, eventually peaking at number eight. After all the frenzy died down, their
debut album was certified double platinum and also earned the title of best-selling digital album of all time. The song, "How
to Save a Life" also rocketed to the number one spot on international music charts, becoming a favorite in countries like
Ireland, Canada, Spain, and Bulgaria. Some of The Fray's other popular hits include "You Found Me", "Love Don't Die", "Never
Say Never", and "Look After You". With a rapidly growing repertoire of hit rock songs, this is one group you definitely don't
want to miss seeing live!
Did you know that "Over My Head (Cable Car)" is about Isaac Slade's brother?
wrote "Cable Car" about a fight he had with his brother, Caleb, who played bass in the band until 2003. When he left the band,
the two brothers had a falling out, and they drifted apart. Since then, Isaac has said that they have reconciled their differences
and are now more like best friends than just brothers.
The Fray's melodic and enchanting
sound is best heard live, and you will be overwhelmed by the band members' magnetic energy and soul-bearing performances.
The Fray first started to accumulate their fan base through their live local performances, and even though the stages are
bigger now, they still come out and perform with the same intensity and warmth that they had in the small music venues in
Denver. So immerse yourself in the honest and beautiful music of The Fray and grab tickets to one of the live performances
