the Fray


Today our Bottle Rock Napa Featured Band is The Fray. The Fray has been one of my favorite bands for quite a while.  I think I have seen them live about four times and honestly I just can get enough of them!  I remember the first time I fell in love with them was when I heard their song Over My Head on the radio. I tried to find out who it was and no one knew. It took me a couple weeks of trying to catch it again on the radio and this time I was going to find out! I did and quickly went out to buy the album How To Save a Life and my long love affair soon began.  The Fray always has music that just spoke to me at the right times in my life. The honest and raw lyrics touch upon the many challenges in life and were sung so beautifully and in a perfect composition.  Their songs became the soundtrack of my life’s ups and downs and no matter what I was going through, listening to those 3 to 5 minutes of The Fray always made everything better!

The Fray currently has a new album out, Helios and it truly shows how the band is musically diverse and is their fourth studio album  The album can be described as anything from pop/rock/funk/alternative/blues and so on. This album has quite a bit more edge to it and the vocals once again are powerful and moving.  They are also heading out on the Helios Tour set to start at the end of April.
