Love Like Fiction is a pop-punk band based in Phoenix, Arizona and comprised of Nick Barker on Lead Vocals, Frankie Stapley on Guitar and Vocals, Marin Bridges on Guitar, Paul Ritchie on Bass and Tara Goltz on Drums.
It is the brainchild of Tara Goltz and Marin Bridges who brought the band together in July of 2018 by recruiting Nick, Frankie and Paul. This came after a few years of trying out different members and attempting to bring Love Like Fiction to life. Drawing inspiration from bands like Panic! At the Disco, Brand New, New Found Glory and Mayday Parade, Love Like Fiction's sound is upbeat and poppy with a melancholic undertone.
