Guitarist King and Slade, who plays piano, both
share lead vocal and songwriting duties. "Although we started working on our songs separately," says Slade, "most of our new songs are true collaborations."

In less than a year, The Fray went from
being virtually unknowns to the top of Denver's A-list. The Fray's work, both on stage and in studio, generated an accelerating buzz unlike anything Colorado had seen before. Word of mouth caused people to check them out and once they did, the reaction was overwhelmingly positive.
The Fray garnered an early following through impressive area gigs and the support of local radio, which led to a listener-driven campaign to get the band a record contract. With strong word-of-mouth, the band won "Best New Band" honors from Denver's Westword magazine and got substantial airplay on two of Denver's top rock stations - the demo version of "Over My Head (Cable Car)" became KTCL's top 30 most played song of 2004 in just 4 months.

Joe King: "I would say my favorite so far would be the
HBO spot and the Grey's Anatomy spot, both using 'How To Save A Life.' I remember last year seeing the Aqualung HBO spot and was shocked and almost jealous by how good it was. I called our managers and asked if we could get a spot like that, and I remember him saying, 'That's a tough one.' When I watched our HBO spot I didn't move, I don't even remember breathing because I had the
