about us

TooMuchFiction perform all original material that has been described as jazzy, alternative modern-rock. The music has been compared to bands ranging from Sarah McLachlan to The Police to Missing Persons to The Sundays, and each member brings a wide, diverse range of influences to the mix.

The North East Bay Area based band brings elements of both old and new music, incorporates electric and acoustic guitars, guitar synthesizers, electronic and acoustic drums, samples and other interesting tidbits. The band has forged a unique and identifiable sound that can only be described as TooMuchFiction.

TooMuchFiction was formed in 1993 and has remained an active fixture in several regional music scenes ever since. Guitarist Kevin Collins is the sole original (and founding) member, although Ron VanH joined in 2005 on electric and acoustic guitar.

In 2015, the band was rounded out by vocalist Melody Rhodes and John Rose who plays standard and fretless electric bass guitar, as well as upright bass and Chapman Stick.

We are currently looking for a new drummer. If you are interested, please email Kevin Jordan Carpenter.

Look to see us back on stage by early summer, 2018!
