EDITORS’ NOTES

This Denver-based quartet used a grassroots campaign of their local radio station and newspaper to land a major label recording contract. Their demo of ""Over My Head (Cable Car)"" ended up being one of the most-played songs of 2004 and set the band in motion. The group's piano-based pop rock easily slots in next to adult-contemporary favorites like Five For Fighting and David Gray without missing a beat. Singer Isaac Slade and guitarist Joe King write catchy songs that are earnest and upbeat in their general veneer, recalling both the heartland Americana of Counting Crows and the heart-on-sleeve emotional overload of Dashboard Confessional.

New version?

I love this album and I love the Fray. I've been a huge fan of theirs for years and have probably listened to the song "How to Save a Life" three hundred times. I see no difference between the original and the "new version". What is that all about???

How To Save a Life and Over My Head (Cable Car) have made The Fray fairly well known in the world, but most people don't bother to notice some of their other great songs. I love those two songs, but songs like She Is, All At Once, Look After You, and Little House are amazing as well, plus every song on the album The Fray is awesome as well. The Fray is one of the best known unknown bands out there.
