Coming soon, F20D will officially announce a new contest related to The Year of Fiction 20 Down. It’s all in the name: Fiction 20 Down was originally a song written by lead singer Jordan Lally about facing his major fear of singing in public. Though he loved music and yearned to start a band, that fear kept him from pursuing his #1 dream until he faced it head on and went all-in. Had he shied from singing in front of people, Jordan’s life would be vastly different today. This year is about standing up to your fears and not backing down, boldly living the life you choose, and inspiring others to do the same. Stay tuned to Fiction20Down.com and facebook.com/fiction20down for the #yearF20D for awesome contest details coming in the next few days.
About Fiction 20 Down:Fiction 20 Down has been touted as ROCK (Best Rock Act at the 2014 Maryland Music Awards), HIPHOP (F20D mixtapes are regularly featured on tastemaking hiphop blogs like Good Music All Day) and even REGGAE (recent F20D LP “Live at the Hadabee” – acollection of reggae-infused songs – reached #6 on the iTunes reggae charts), but with their diverse, all-ages appeal and “hooks that refuse to leave your head” (Branch Out Music), perhaps Fiction 20 Down might fit best as today’s POP alternative. Labels aside, one thing is clear: “F20D is an incredibly cool brand of music” – Skope Magazine
