Framing Hanley is a five-piece American post-hardcore band that formed in 2005 in Nashville, Tennessee, and released their first studio album in 2007. Lead singer & songwriter Kenneth Nixon, guitarists Ryan and Brandon, bassist Luke and drummer Chris came together to form Framing Hanley and quickly gained a large following in Nashville. First formed in 2005, the band posted some demos of their songs on the bands myspace page. In November 2006, these demos were discovered by Brett Hestla, former Creed bassist and frontman of Dark New Day. Hestla helped the young Nashville based quintet record a 2 song demo in his Florida studio which captured the attention of Jeff Hanson (Creed, Sevendust, Paramore) and his record label Silent Majority Group. The band recorded their debut album, The Moment, with Hestla in Orlando, Florida. The disc was released in August 2007 and includes the single "Hear Me Now". In November of 2008, Framing Hanley released The Moment Deluxe Edition with a cover of Lil Wayne's "Lollipop" song. The band has since toured with Evans Blue. According to an interview with Kenneth Nixon, up until the end of 2006, the band was called a different name, Embers Fade. Nixon stated that "our drummer's fiancée Ashley Hanley passed away in October of 2006. She was a best friend of the rest of the band, and we wanted to do something to somewhat honor her. She used to take pictures for our band, hence 'framing.' Naming our band Framing Hanley was the least we could do for someone that means so much to us."
Framing Hanley did an awesome cover of the song "Lollipop" by Lil Wayne.
