The Fray

Formed in 2002 in Denver, Colorado, vocalist/pianist Isaac Slade, guitarist/vocalist Joe King, drummer Ben Wysocki, and guitarist Dave Welsh began playing sessions in Denver which quickly built up their popularity. Demo tapes landed them local radio airplay and was voted Best New Band by Denver's Westword Magazine. Their local support and exposure in the magazine helped them land a record deal with Epic Records in 2004. Their debut album, How to Save a Life, was released in September of 2005 and their hit single "Over My Head (Cable Car)" became a top 40 hit during the latter months of 2005. "How to Save a Life" was featured in an episode of both Scrubs and Grey's Anatomy and though it was never released as a single, the song made the top 100 Billboard chart. The song is was chosen as the song used to advertise the third season of Grey's Anatomy, and since then "How to Save a Life" has been certified gold and is a top hit in Australia, Canada, and New Zealand. The Fray will begin their US and Canada tour in October with English singer Aqualung.
