Hire The Fray:
The Fray is an American rock band from Denver, Colorado, formed in 2002 by schoolmates Isaac Slade and Joe King. Their debut album, How to Save a Life, released in 2005, was certified double platinum by the RIAA and platinum in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
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.”
Hire the Fray for your special event or occasion.
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.
Hire the Fray for your festival or concert plans.
The Fray‘s tight arrangements, haunting melodies and evocative lyrics result in a sound that is extremely polished by any standards. The Fray doesn’t fit easily into any niche, and they don’t need to: word of mouth has been good enough. The songs stand on their own, no clever marketing or catering to genres necessary.
The first single from “How to Save a Life,” “Over My Head (Cable Car)” climbed into the top 10 on the Billboard singles chart, has been certified platinum.
It turns out that The Fray‘s music has resonated with lots of people: they were one of the most licensed bands of 2006, with their music being featured on Scrubs, Grey’s Anatomy, What About Brian, NCIS, One Tree Hill and Bones as well as in HBO’s summer promos.
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 chills.”
The band’s use of the piano as the lead instrument in their music has led critics to compare the band with English, piano-driven bands such as Coldplay and Keane. The band lists its influences as Counting Crows, Better Than Ezra, and U2.
Their discography includes four studio albums, three live albums, one compilation album, five extended plays, twelve singles, one promotional single and ten music videos.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BOOK/HIRE THE FRAY?
(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire THE FRAY for an event?)
(i.e., what is THE FRAY booking fee to perform at an event?)
Official booking fees for THE FRAY, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at any time without prior notice.
Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist’s calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist’s concerts, the current demand for the artist’s music, market activity, etc.
As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist’s price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when the artist becomes less popular.
Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at any time. Generally, the artist’s manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
