Article Contributed by Kevin Adams | Published on Friday, November 20, 2015

Fruition rambled through the Front Range, high on the November 9th release of the new EP, Holehearted Fools. The Portland Americana quintet performed 4 of the new 5 song EP recorded with Colorado friends, Grant Farm. Fruition is Jay Cobb Anderson (Lead Vocals, Acoustic Guitar), Kellen Asebroek (Piano, Vocals), Mimi Naja (Mandolin, Guitar, Vocals), Keith Simon (Electric Bass), and Tyler Thompson (Banjo, Stomp Box, Drums).

Fort Collins showed up for Fruition. The emerging Americana/bluegrass/rock genre hopping quintet continues to produce original music that is meant for a live experience. The song writing of Anderson, Naja, and Asebroek showcase a raw and honest catalogue of ballads, stompers and rock. Fruition’s harmonies were on full display at the Aggie Theater, starting with the opener Mountain Annie (Just One of those Nights).

Fruition and Grant Farm have been collaborating in Colorado since the 2014 EP release of Meeting On the Mountain. Tyler Grant, National Flatpicking Champion and member of Emmitt Nershi Band, and lead for Grant Farm. Grant joined Fruition with his Telecaster to close the Set with Random Lee and Never Again.

Fruition paid homage to Americana legend, Neil Young on his birthday by closing with Down By The River, Are You Ready for the Country, and Southern Man.

If you are headed to Avon for the 2016 WinterWonderGrass, Fruition will be playing Nottingham Park.
