100% Free The Fray MP3s
When two former school friends ran into each other at a local Denver music store, the two of them, Isaac Slade and Joe King, began having jam sessions which led to songwriting, which led to two more musicians Ben Wysocki and Dave Welsh joining the jam and songwriting sessions. This all led to the development of one of the newest most listened to bands of the 2000s, The Fray.
Isaac Slade sings vocals and plays piano, Dave Welsh plays guitar, Joe King sings vocals and plays guitar and Ben Sysocki plays drums and percussion. Formed in 2002, The Fray is probably most well-known for their songs “How To Save a Life” and “Over My Head (Cable Car)” which was actually written by Isaac Slade in reaction to his falling out with brother and previous The Fray member, Caleb Slade.
Signed by Epic Records in 2004, The Fray released their first album, How to Save a Life, in 2005. Their second album, The Fray, was released in 2009. Singles to become hits over the years have been “Over My Head (Cable Car)”; “How to Save a Life”; “Look After You”; “All at Once”; “You Found Me”; and “Never Say Never”.
An alternative rock band with hints of piano, their sound has been compared to that of U2 and the Counting Crows, which most likely had everything to do with the band being named by Denver’s Westword Magazine, Best New Band.
