Meet The Fray

By on February 24, 2010

Colorado-based pop rock foursome The Fray will play at Quinnipiac on Sunday, April 18 at the TD Bank Sports Center.

Founded in 2002 by friends Isaac Slade and Joe King, The Fray attained public awareness in 2005 with their debut album “How to Save a Life.” With promotion from ABC drama “Grey’s Anatomy” showcasing the title track, The Fray began to carve a niche within Top 40 radio. While the group’s first single “Over My Head (Cable Car)” did well, second single “How to Save a Life” established the group as a force to be reckoned with throughout the rest of the world.

The group released follow-up singles “Look After You” and “All at Once” with decreased visibility, but the group still parlayed the success of their first two singles into an extensive worldwide tour.

The Fray earned two Grammy nominations for both “Over My Head (Cable Car)” and “How to Save a Life” in 2007. In 2009, The Fray released its self-titled follow-up album with the hit single “You Found Me.” The Fray managed another two Grammy nominations this year for single “Never Say Never” and their album.

The piano-rock band continues to show their vitality within the industry and have proven that the band is here to stay.
