Braver than Fiction, forged in Sheffield, England are: Mel (vocals), Adam (bass), Jason (keyboards), Paul (drums) and Martin (guitar). The fusion of these five musicians’ diverse industry backgrounds, individual creative influences and musical styles is undoubtedly the fuel that fires the way that this unique collective works on any of their compositions, each according to their singular flair but simultaneously in synch – it’s a fascinatingly organic process.
