Fiction Family Bio

Fiction Family is a musical collaboration between Switchfoot frontman Jon Foreman and Nickel Creek guitarist Sean Watkins. The duo recently finished a self-titled, full-length album, which was released on January 20th, 2009.

According to Watkins, the band's name comes from the fact that "Usually when two guys make a record together, it sounds cool to call them the 'something brothers. But we're not, so that's how Fiction Family came to be."

The two began the collaboration in 2005 by writing songs together, according to a blog post on Watkins's website. Around Mid-2006 they began recording the songs, in bits and pieces while the two were off the road, announcing themselves as "The Real SeanJon," a name jokingly chosen in the hopes that Sean "Sean John" Combs would sue them.

However, on March 13, 2008, it was reported that The Real SeanJon had changed their name to "Fiction Family." They had already completed the record and had tentatively titled it "Betrayal" before the name change.
