The Fray is a four-piece piano rock band from Denver, Colorado. The schoolmates Isaac Slade and Joe King formed the band in 2002. The debut album of the band was How to Save a Life in 2005.
The song "How to Save a Life", earned the band international recognition. This song was so popular that it was charted in the top three of the Billboard Hot 100 and was also a top 5 single in Canada, Australia, Ireland, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. How to Save a Life was certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America and was also certified platinum in New Zealand and Australia. The song "Over My Head (Cable Car)", was another super hit song of the Fray. It became a top ten hit in the United States.
The Fray was formed in 2002. Currently, the band comprises Isaac Slade the lead vocalist and pianist, Joe King on guitar and vocals, Dave Welsh on guitar, and Ben Wysocki on drums and percussion.
The band is recently touring with bassist Jimmy Stofer, also a member of the bands Dualistics and The Commentary but there is no official bassist in the Fray. Many critics compare the band to Coldplay. However, the band lists its main influences as U2, Better Than Ezra and Counting Crows.
The schoolmates Isaac Slade and Joe King met up in a local Guitar Center in the spring of 2002. They soon started regular two-man jam sessions that led to writing songs and devising a style pitched between the arena-friendly style of U2 and the Triple-A rock of bands like Coldplay. Zach Johnson and Slade's brother Caleb were later added to the band. Johnson left the band to attend an art school in New York.
Wysocki, then became the drummer for The Fray. He was a former bandmate of Isaac Slade. The "Over My Head (Cable Car)" got its inspiration from the bittersweet relationship between the brothers. The Fray has not used a bassist on a permanent basis since Caleb's departure. Later, Welsh was added to the band. He was also former bandmate of Slade and Wysocki.The Fray opened for Weezer for ten concerts in July 2005. At the end of the Weezer tour, the band opened for Ben Folds for twelve shows. Playing with Mat Kearney and Cary Brothers, the Fray headlined their own tour in January 2006.
