The Fray – American rock group
The Fray appeared in Denver, Colorado in 2002. Four talented musicians released several famous albums, earned a big number of awards, and conquered the hearts of fans all over the world.
The initial lineup consisted of Isaac Slade (vocalist, guitarist) and Joe King (vocalist, guitarist). At first, artists performed in the local clubs as a duo. Later, Zack Johnson and Caleb Slade (Isaac’s brother) joined them. The lineup changed several times in the past 16 years. Today, besides Isaac and Joe, it features Dave Welsh (guitarist and bass guitarist) and Ben Wysocki (drummer and percussionist).
The band’s name appeared thanks to the members’ habit to quarrel over the lyrics and music. That’s how the word “fray” came about and stuck.
The musicians acquired numerous fans, who told others about the talented group from Denver. The Fray won a “Best New Band” award from the local Westword Magazine. Their songs started appearing on local radio stations.
