This second full-length partnership of Jon Foreman (Switchfoot) and Sean Watkins (Nickel Creek), Fiction Family Reunion, sees two distinctive artists offering up their blend of folk, pop, and songcraft. Foreman and Watkins became friends at their hometown festival, San Diego's famed Street Scene. Convening at Switchfoot's Spot X Studio in Carlsbad, CA for a series of sessions, the band produced themselves, keeping it intimate and organic. The first single "Up Against the Wall" notes the influence of The Band's "The Weight," as Fiction Family's attempt to find that same DNA.

The Musical Journey of Jon Foreman Continues| Posted January 28, 2013
After 4 long years, Jon Foreman has finally completed his second album under his side project Fiction Family. While I haven't had the chance to listen to the first album, I do know what the band is like and what style they utilize. Before, it was just Jon and other guy but on this album they've recruited 2 new members to fill out the bass and drums. This album sounds like a mix of indie rock and folk rock which makes the experimentation on some tracks noticible. If you liked the previous album Fiction Family put out, you might get some enjoyment out of this one as well. For people who have heard of Fiction Family but have only heard 1 or 2 songs by them, this is a great way to experience what the band is all about.
