After forming in 2002, The Fray experienced a rapid ascent from its humble roots in Denver. The band initially struggled to gain attention in its local rock scene, but once an area radio station put The Fray's song "Over My Head (Cable Car)" in heavy rotation, it wasn't long before the group was breaking Billboard chart records and landing its music on popular TV dramas such as Grey's Anatomy.

Set List

"You Found Me"

"Syndicate"

"Never Say Never"

"Heartless"

Following the massively successful How to Save a Life, The Fray's self-titled second album finds the band further developing the uplifting, piano-based rock that gained it the world's attention. In this World Cafe session from WXPN, The Fray plays a handful of songs from its latest record.
