Review for Fruition:
If you’re familiar with Fruition who will know them for their folk-rooted sound, heartfelt lyrics and incredible three-part harmonies. But in a departure from their usual DIY approach, Fruition teamed up with producer/mixer Tucker Martine (My Morning Jacket, The Decemberists, Modest Mouse) to adorn that folk-rooted sound with delicately crafted elements of psychedelia and soul. Showcasing the band's three singer-songwriters' (Jay Cobb Anderson, Kellen Asebroek, Mimi Naja) sublime harmonies they first discovered during an impromptu busking session in 2008, Watching It All Fall Apart finds them fully embracing their rock-and-roll sensibilities bringing a gritty vitality to each track.
Displaying the dynamic musicality they’ve shown since making their debut with 2008’s Hawthorne Hoedown, the band has evolved from a rootsy, string-centric outfit to a full-fledged rock act, eventually taking the stage at such major festivals as Bonnaroo and Telluride Bluegrass (a set that inspired Rolling Stone to praise their “raucous originals filled with heartfelt lyrics and stadium-worthy energy”). Following the release of 2016’s Labor of Love, Fruition again made the rounds at festivals across the U.S., prompting Rolling Stone to feature the band on its “8 Best Things We Saw” at DelFest 2016.
Already released singles have been praised by Relix, Alternative Press (x2), American Songwriter, Culture Collide, Impose Magazine, Live For Live Music and more.
