Fruition

Fruition’s full lineup is returning to the road in 2023. While the three singers hit the road for select dates in late 2022, Drummer Tyler Thompson and his wife Samantha welcomed a new baby in November, and bassist Jeff Leonard and his partner Amelia had a baby daughter earlier in the year. With both ready to return to the road, the band is happy to announce new dates to bring them back to the Southeast in March.

Fruition is pleased to announce their first headline shows of 2023, which will mark the return to the stage of the full 5 piece band.

The Fruition family is due to get a little bit larger this year. Drummer Tyler Thompson and his wife Samantha are expecting a new baby this November, and bassist Jeff Leonard and his partner Amelia had a baby daughter earlier this year. With both looking to take some extra paternity time this winter, Fruition’s 3 singers and primary songwriters - Jay Cobb Anderson, Kellen Asebroek and Mimi Naja - will be playing a series of mostly acoustic trio shows in November and December.

Good Vibez Presents, the creative geniuses behind the beloved California Roots Music & Arts Festival, are pleased to announce Rebels & Renegades, a 2-day music festival taking place October 15-16 at the Monterey Fair & Event Center in Monterey, CA, the once home to the famous Monterey Pop Festival.

On the heels of two big weekends at Northwest String Summit, and Sawtooth Valley Gathering, Fruition is pleased to announce their return to Colorado this fall.
The band will be joined by Mama Magnolia at the Belly Up Aspen on September 29th, and by Heavy Diamond Ring (featuring former members of Paper BIrd) at the Boulder Theater on September 30th. The weekend will wrap up with an evening with Fruition at the Lariat in Buena Vista on October 1st.

Three years in the making – thanks Covid for putting it on hold – The Hog Farm Hideaway, featuring two improvisational sets from The String Cheese Incident each night, passed its inaugural undertaking with flying colors, so to speak.

Beer, Bluegrass, Mountains: The WinterWonderGrass-Tahoe festival’s first venture in three years – thanks, COVID — succeeded with flying colors, April 1 to 3. The fest location, adjacent to Olympic Village, which was the site of the 1960 Winter Olympics, was the first festival of the year for many, and brought a distinctive assemblage of mountaintop adventure-seekers for a sweet conglomeration of jam-happy roots and bluegrass music, pleasing craft brews, and mountain views.

Northwest String Summit is one of the most well-known festivals of the Pacific Northwest. It has deep roots in family and bluegrass that have extended, intertwined, and grown deep over the last 20 years. We had the opportunity to chat with one of the founders of the festival Skye McDonald about the festival and what the last 20 years have meant to him and the other founders.

Fruition is happy to mark the release date for their first ever live album, “Live, Vol. 1” which is out today.  Originally timed to release around the band’s January California tour, “Live, Vol. 1” was pushed back when Covid forced the band to move their California run back to August. The band’s next two shows are at the Mission Ballroom in Denver, with support from The Record Company, and DJ Sleepy, and Beaver Creek’s Vilar PAC which will host an evening with the band.
