KING

Perhaps taking a cue from his pal Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic, who's written and produced songs for an array of top-shelf pop acts, Fray guitarist Joe King has been steadily making a name for himself as a burgeoning songwriter in his own right. Prior to working on his own solo material, King co-wrote a track for American Idol winner Kris Allen and collaborated with Timbaland and Esthero on a tune from the former's album, Shock Value II. On the heels of releasing his debut single — "Need a Woman by Friday," featuring Trombone Shorty — which dropped last month on iTunes, King is playing a pair of solo shows, the first on Thursday, April 25, at the Bluebird Theater, and the second on Sunday, April 28, at the Fox.
