We started Slow Fade Sailors in 2018 without really telling anyone. We released an instrumental piano EP called Lovers in No Mind's Land because we had things that needed to be said but couldn't be said with words or lyrics. We put it out there and it really took off more than anything we could have imagined. Our song Be, Leave was added to Peaceful Piano and it racked up more than 18 million streams!
Since then, Slow Fade Sailors has become a refuge where we write emotive cinematic music together on Irene’s Piano. Irene was my (David) grandmother who passed away before I was born. Although we never had the chance to meet, we share a birthday and I swear I can hear her whisper soft melodies in my ear when I’m out of ideas for songs.
We tend to write simple tunes that anybody who has played piano for a week could play. We’re not trying to show off our piano playing skills here, we’d rather find just the right notes to help create a space in you where silence and music can coexist.
Sail with us and let your day slowly fade away...
