Biography

In 1999, Joe Sumner formed the memorably-monikered Santa’s Boyfriend, and soon found a kindred spirit in guitarist Seton Daunt on lead guitar. The ambitious fledgling outfit released the self-produced indie album Swings and Roundabouts and successfully toured the U.S., generating considerable record company interest. Rechristening itself Fiction Plane and signing with MCA Records, the band released its mainstream debut Everything Will Never Be OK in 2003, including the popular lead single “Hate,” to considerable critical acclaim and fan enthusiasm. Pete joined on drums in time to tour behind the album. The band’s tireless touring efforts helped solidify their enthusiastic grass-roots audience.

They have a tremendous amount of touring under their belt including Sting’s Broken Music Tour (29 shows in 25 countries) and The Police’s reunion tour ( 87 shows). High-profile European festival appearances include Paaspop (The Netherlands), Pinkpop (The Netherlands), The Vieilles Charrues (France), Rock Am Ring (Germany), Rock im Park (Germany). European rock festivals include Meribel Little World Festival, Glastonbury Festival (UK), Nice Jazz Festival (France). They’ve even performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Fiction Plane’s fourth studio album Mondo Lumina was released on November 13, 2015 in the USA. A European Tour is in the pipeline for Fall 2016.

Fiction Plane is Joe Sumner (vocals, bass), Pete Wilhoit (drums), and Seton Daunt (guitar).
