I'd never heard of them until a girl I dated showed me one of their songs/videos and then invited me to one of their concerts. I declined the offer and tried to tactfully state how bad I think they sucked. We lasted about 3 days after that.

The Fray's music can be defined as such: wishy-washy.

But here's the thing. They are getting just what they want. College-aged chicks who sing along and adore them. What more could they want?

BTW, who is that woman in the video? She's got a decent voice.

A young NYC artist now based in London trying to make more of a name for herself. She recently put out her first album on Itunes and seems to be making pretty big strides.

It's actually really girly music but i'm a sucker for talent and i feel she has it...

Any artist who did time in NYC and moves to Europe to ply their trade is full of crap, if you ask me.

Yeah, it kind of sucked, but you go where the offers are. And actually, if it makes any difference, i think she had actually gone to LA from NYC, and then to london. Whatever.
