The Fray Live in Manila: Saving Lives One Song at a Time


The Fray Live in Manila!


The first time I heard “How to Save a Life”, I thought to myself, “Wow! That’s a great song! The tune’s really catchy, and its meaning is really profound … Wait, is that Coldplay?


Well okay, I’m sure everybody figured that Chris Martin wasn’t behind the American-accented vocals for one of the most successful singles of 2005. But barring the difference between Chris Martin and Isaac Slade‘s diction and vocal styles (I find Chris’ to be more powerful whereas Isaac’s is more relaxed), the piano-driven musical style of Coldplay and The Fray (their names even rhyme!) is undeniably identical. And while a number of critics point to this fact for downplaying The Fray‘s commercial success, one cannot deny that the band’s songcraft is based on a formula that works.


With three singles – “Over My Head (Cable Car)”, “How to Save a Life”, and “You Found Me” – reaching the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100 and their debut album “How to Save a Life” becoming the best-selling digital album of all time, The Fray has earned multiple awards and nominations from Billboard and the Grammys. Issac’s honest, heartfelt songwriting allow fans to relate to the mortal experiences of love, loss, life, and relationships.
