Fiction Family is a musical collaboration between Switchfoot frontman Jon Foreman and Nickel Creek guitarist Sean Watkins. The duo released their self-titled, full-length album on January 20, 2009. Fiction Family originally went by the name, "The Real SeanJon," a name jokingly chosen in the hopes that Sean "Sean John" Combs would sue them. According to a blog post on Watkins' website, they started the collaboration in 2005, writing songs together. Around Mid-2006 they began recording the songs, in bits and pieces while the two were off the road.
