Sky Olson – “People Fade” single
“People Fade and that’s ok. I guess what I am trying to say is you don’t have to stay. But what’s the harm in staying one more day ‘cause people fade but you could stay. I’ve lost friends, no they didn’t die. They disappeared into the fog of life. But that doesn’t have to happen to you and I ‘cause people fade but you could stay.” – lyrics
‘People Fade’ tells a bittersweet tale about an exhausted and nervous young guy who finds himself seated on a moving train. Apparently, he’s on his way to meet his significant other with a heart that’s in the process of healing. Also, he knows there’s no forever, so with the time he does have left, he wants to use it wisely. While looking at the moving scenery, he admits, “I have loved and I have lost, but I think I’m ready to try again.”
‘People Fade’ contains a nostalgic storyline and soft vocals that will resonate well with fans of John Mayer, Jason Mraz, and Amos Lee. The sentimental tune possesses guitar-laden instrumentation bursting with indie-pop and Americana elements. Furthermore, “People Fade” is featured on Sky Olson’s latest album, entitled, “Hollow Walls.” The eight-track project is an eclectic mix of genres held together by a shimmering, airy soundscape.
“People fade, but you could stay.”
“‘People Fade’ is a mellow John Mayer-inspired song about how oftentimes people fade from our lives. While that can be bittersweet, it makes the people who do stay with us all the more meaningful.” – Sky Olson explained
Sky Olson is the previous winner of the weekly John Lennon Songwriting Contest. In the past year, he has played headlining shows all across Utah. Using music as a way to journal his life experiences, Sky’s lyrics often speak about personal experiences and express a melancholic hopefulness.
