Indy: You're headlining an amphitheatre this summer. Did you ever expect to go so far, so soon?
JK: All I wanted for The Fray, for this first record or at least my expectations or my hopes were, you know, to sell a couple hundred thousand records, build a good, solid fan base so we could tour and support ourselves a little bit, and then go into the second record and hopefully it will break big and go worldwide or something. And it all came at once.
Indy: You get lots of comparisons to Coldplay. Is that fair to your band?
JK: Honestly, those comparisons ... we have a piano, we have some [mellow] stuff in our music and it's more emotive music, so yeah, it's in the ballpark. But I think the fans have figured it out over time that The Fray is not a copycat band or trying to [follow] that sound.
Indy: You plan to begin recording the second album this fall or winter. Are you playing any of the new songs now?
JK: Pretty much every night, we're going to be playing new tunes that we're working on for the next record. It's good for us because it keeps [the live set] fresh for us.
Sold out at Morrison's Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Aug. 4-6.
This is awesome! Excited about the new music and adventures for his year!
Thanks so much!!!
Hah! Similarly, one, if famous, should not die in December, as all those who passed…
