Biography

Fact Not Fiction has never been satisfied with life exactly as it appears. Coming from a small town in Georgia known better for its UFO sightings than for its music scene, it’s natural for their songs to exude an escapist quality. Zeke Sayer’s light vocals lift away from simple acoustic strums with an eerie haze, bringing to mind the likes of Elliott Smith or Iron & Wine. Poppier tracks cleverly build catchy melodies in the vein of The Beatles and Snow Patrol. Their latest release displays new experimentation that shows, despite its retro sound, that this is the kind of band that can only move forward.

The band began after vocalist/guitarist Zeke Sayer left his high school. “I did a lot of things that made me wide up in trouble, and one of those situations caused me to leave school,” he admits. ”But I believe that everything happens for a reason, and while I was in school, I had no direction in life. It took losing something for me to have a wake up call and realize I’d better do something with my life. So I started the band.”


Sayer found his passion not only in playing the music, but in production. After finding the right line-up, he produced the band’s debut “Conversations With Eyes Closed” album in a renovated mobile home. Some of the music from this album has even appeared on the soundtrack for indie film The Philosopher.


In 2007, Fact Not Fiction began recording their second album, A Corporate Calling, with Jon Bryant on guitar, Justin Vickery on bass, and Adam Grant on drums.
