Are Joe King’s Kids And Cereal Behind The Fray’s Biggest Hits?

Joe King‘s solo EP Breaking drops next Tuesday, but his 7-year-old daughter’s front teeth coming in trumps all of that. The proud papa of two opened up about his home life, how one of his girls wound up on President Obama’s radar and why a bowl of Rice Krispies® in his household can mean the difference between a single that pops or flops.

Joe King Beat Dave Matthews, Gets Intimidated Fighting Mike Tyson

We’re psyched to be exclusively debuting The Fray‘s co-founder and guitarist Joe King‘s first solo music video “Need A Woman By Friday” from his album Breaking next Friday, March 29 at 12:00 a.m. ET. Not going to lie, we thought the record title was a hint when we first heard Joe was doing his thing without his multi-platinum selling band.

Joe King Of The Fray Is Going Solo

The Fray are one of the most successful piano-pop acts of the last decade, having sold well over three million copies worldwide of the three studio albums that they’ve released thus far.
