To celebrate the launch of the Sugar Network's new site, BuzzSugar, we're partnering with Epic Records to give away a killer gift set, which includes a copy of The Fray's debut album, How to Save a Life, and a Sony portable DVD player. To enter, just visit the contest site here and watch the music video for the Fray's hit single, "How to Save a Life," for a chance to win.
I had a chance to sit down with Fray guitarists Joe King and Dave Welsh in Vegas on Monday before the FOX Billboard Music Awards, where the charming boys from Denver performed the very catchy "How to Save a Life." The song is really everywhere these days, including the soundtracks of both "Scrubs" and "Grey's Anatomy," leading the guys to joke that "apparently the nurses of America love us." The Fray is floored by how much traction the track has gotten through nontraditional venues like MySpace, iTunes, and, of course, TV soundtracks.
The musicians said that they look forward to next year, when they can start working on a new album. Because while they're happy to play "How to Save a Life" as long as the fans want it, they wouldn't mind adding a few more songs to their repertoire. But if you're a fan of Coldplay and Keane, this piano-driven album is very much worth checking out, so be sure to throw your hat into the ring for our giveaway. The contest runs for two weeks.
