Leah Shipchack and Lauren Horbal started writing songs together in 2010 in their home state of Connecticut. After the two best friends relocated to Nashville a few years later, they formed Fame & Fiction in the fall of 2016. An assortment of talented musicians have taken part in this project over the years and the current roster includes Cara McCarthy on guitar, Owen Berger on bass, and Mary Jennings on keys. Fame & Fiction has been fortunate to perform at venues across Nashville as well as throughout the Midwest during their summer tour of 2017. They recorded their first EP at Bonsai Recordings in Nashville, TN.
