Jon Foreman Teams w/ Nickel Creek's Sean Watkins On 'Fiction Family Reunion'
Jon Foreman of Switchfoot has teamed up again with Nickel Creek frontman Sean Watkins for the duo's side project Fiction Family. The band's second album Fiction Family Reunion dropped January 29th and this time around features contributions from bassist Tyler Chester and drummer Aaron Redfield.
"Tyler Chester and Aaron Redfield, who toured with Jon and I for the first record, quickly became an integral part of the band and were equal partners in producing Fiction Family Reunion," explains Watkins.

Foreman and Watkins still lead arrangements on vocals, guitars, and various other random instruments while Chester and Redfield round out the EQ with a strong backbone.
Fiction Family Reunion features 10 high-spirit, high-energy songs that move in and out of what may seem like to some, polarizing genres. On one side you have the patented folk whimsy of songs like "Fool's Gold" and "Up Against the Wall" while on the other side of the spectrum songs like "Avalon" and "Reality Calls" soar with sunny, psych-pop flair.
"For me, these songs epitomize the joy of playing live music. We recorded most of this album playing live in the same room. No headphones, no agenda, just a couple of friends playing songs together," Foreman says. "Many of the songs on this record were recorded as we learned them, so the third or fourth time through the tune was the take you hear on the album."
