Life and career
Frazier was born and raised in Orange County, California.
He is married to Jennifer Casinelli-Frazier. They have one daughter: Anabelle Frazier.
While attending Corona del Mar High School Stan & friends formed a cover band inspired by the group The Jam. That band, initially called The Tories, went on to become The Shrinky Dinx, and eventually became Sugar Ray.
He was the lead writer of Sugar Ray's "Fly" which includes a lyric about his mother's death. Though "Fly" turned out to be the band's biggest hit, Stan was initially rejected for it since its pop-feel was, at the time, a departure from the band's sound.
In 2012, it was made official that Stan was no longer a part of Sugar Ray.
Stan won the BBC America reality show, Chef Race, UK vs US (premiered October 2, 2012, finale November 28, 2012). He was one of eight American chefs facing off against eight British chefs in a series of elimination challenges as the teams traveled from San Diego, CA to New York, NY (billed as "the ultimate cross-country culinary challenge"). Throughout the series, Stan used his experience from cooking for the band on the road.
