The Fray

The Fray is a new band to me. I have to admit I've only heard a couple of their songs, but I really enjoy their sound. I saw them last night on the Jimmy Kimmel show. I was flippin' channels and heard a voice that was familiar to me. I flipped back and realized The Fray was playing live.

The only way I knew it was them was I had just watched their How to Save a Life video online! Great timing on my part. The first song they sang on Kimmel was You Found Me. I realize their songs aren't God based, but I swear you could insert the Lord into their songs. Looking at Wikipedia, whoever left the info there states that Isaac Slade (lead singer), along with Joe King, went to Faith Christian Academy in Colorado! How awesome is that?

I think once you hear The Fray, you'll be hooked. Slade has a unique sound and you could pick him singing out of a crowd. The band as a whole create distinctive music that sets them apart from other alternative rock bands. This is a band that will be around for a long time. Their newest, self-titled album The Fray comes out 02.03.09

You can click on these links to view their actual videos on YouTube because they wouldn't allow embedded videos. How To Save A Life and You Found Me are the two songs I have listened to and thought were excellent! Ok, checkin' out the videos on YouTube, I've found 2 guys, Boyce Avenue, who remake songs and they did a great job so I'm going to include their version of How To Save a Life.
