Sentenced to Life
Fade to Blue is a pop/rock band based out of Columbus, Ohio. Starting in 2001 with friends and fellow musicians, Kasey Kish (Drums) and Chris Costine (Lead Guitar) united with Dan O'Connor (Lead Vocals, Rhythm Guitar) to begin writing songs. In early 2002, the band looked to broaden their musical horizons. Fade to Blue combined it's musical talents with two experienced musicians, Christy Kish (Keyboards, Backing Vocals) and Kevin Miller (Bass Guitar). With the compilation of these five individuals and their diverse musical backgrounds, Fade to Blue's sound has evolved to what it is today. After the release of their three song demo in early 2003, the band experienced an ever growing success. They were now playing to packed venues, receiving consistent radio airplay and eagerly continuing to work on new material. With the new material, the band knew that is was time to enter the stuido again. In late 2004, Fade to Blue released their first full CD titled: Sentenced to Life. The eleven track disc accents the bands ability to compose upbeat pop/rock music. In 2005, tracks from Sentenced to Life filled the radio airwaves around Columbus, Ohio. The band was now playing larger venues while attracting an expanding fan base. Fade to Blue had their first opportunity to perform out of state and found themselves playing to sold out shows in Knoxville, Tennessee and Atlanta, Georgia. In late, 2005, the band became a quartet with Christy pursuing her career as a full time mother and teacher. The band then decided to enter the studio where they recorded their most recent release, 'By Now.'
