Here is another 'next big thing' for you, and treat for fans of all ages. It's been a whirlwind couple of years for The Fray, the Denver-based quartet whose earnest and melodic songs have been striking a huge chord with audiences around the world. Their debut album How to Save a Life (2005), featured the massive single of the same name which 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. But formed in 2002 by Isaac Slade (vocals, piano) and Joe King (guitar, vocals), The Fray owed all of their early success to their organic, grassroots beginnings. In other words, they did it the old fashioned way: they earned it. It's a story you don't hear much anymore these days: local area gigs led to enthusiastic local press and local radio support. Of course, the band's second album simply called The Fray, followed suit in 2009 and peaked at the number one spot on the Billboard charts selling 179,000 copies in its first week!
