The Fray, a Grammy-nominated piano-rock band whose 2005 debut album, How to Save a Life, went double platinum and produced two triple-platinum hits, will headline Sunday's concert. The band is currently on tour in support of "Helios," which was released in February and features the top 10 adult contemporary hit "Love Don't Lie." The Fray first achieved national success with their single, "Over My Head (Cable Car)," which became a top ten hit. Their second single, "How to Save a Life," charted in the top 3 of the Billboard Hot 100 and was a top 5 hit in several countries. The band landed two more hits with its self-titled sophomore disc - "You Found Me" and "Never Say Never." 2012's Scars & Stories spawned the gold hit "Heartbeat."
Seattle-based sultry indie rock trio Barcelona is best known for the song "Please Don't Go" from their album Absolutes. The track was featured in the 2011 film Water for Elephants, starring Robert Pattinson and Academy Award winners Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz. The harmonious, keyboard-driven band is currently touring in support of three EPs collectively known as The Melodrama. The three-part series, released earlier this year, focuses on themes of learning to love and be loved.
Kicking off the show will be indie-folk duo Oh Honey from Brooklyn. Comprised of singer/songwriters Mitchy Collins and Daniel Bouchard, Oh Honey is on the road in support debut EP With Love which features the single "Be Okay."
