Fruition

Hot on the heels of their recent release, Wild As The Night, Portland-based roots-rock darlings Fruition have just announced another brand new collection of songs, Broken at the Break of Day. The new seven-song album, available January 17th, 2020, was recorded in between tour dates in Fruition drummer Tyler Thompson’s newly constructed home studio, and like Fruition’s past releases, this collection of songs won’t fit into one box.

Organizers of the 12th annual Rooster Walk Music & Arts Festival released their “early bird band lineup” today, with The Infamous Stringdusters at the top of the initial band list.

The Grammy-winning progressive bluegrass band will be making its third appearance at Rooster Walk, and will be joined on the bill by Melvin Seals & JGB, Fruition, BIG Something, Yarn, The Vegabonds, Big Daddy Love and Sexbruise?.

Today, Pacific Northwest roots-rockers Fruition released the much-anticipated, Wild As The Night, a 7-song collection of new music showcasing their honest song-crafting skills and individual musical talents in a blend that could only be forged from years of playing together.

Dobro, mandolin, guitar, musical exaltations and vocal flourishes – and much more – lilted through the autumn-painted trees and into the ears and souls of some colorful attendees at the fairgrounds in the Sierra Nevada foothill town of Placerville, California, at the ninth annual Hangtown Music Festival (formerly the Hangtown Halloween Ball).

Portland-based roots-rockers Fruition have just announced the release of Wild As The Night, a 7-song collection of new music showcasing their honest song-crafting skills and individual musical talents in a blend that could only be forged from years of playing together. Available everywhere November 8th, Fruition’s Wild As The Night conveys the emotions of our darkest, and sometimes weakest, moments. 

Fresh off of recent visits to Red Rocks to support The Wood Brothers, and to Nashville for a packed showcase at Americanafest, Fruition continues to roll out new tour dates to close out 2019. The band has added dates in California, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Texas to previously announced headline shows and festivals in Georgia, Tennessee, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oregon and Washington.

Portland, OR’s own Fruition will ring in 2020 with a short run through the Pacific Northwest, including visits to Bend, Eugene, Seattle and Portland. Tickets will go on sale on Friday, and Danny Barnes supports on all shows. The band is currently on tour, with their next appearance coming this Wednesday at Americanafest in Nashville at the High Watt. 

The Lil Smokies just released their video for “Gone at Last” featuring Anders Beck of Greensky Bluegrass and Jay Cobb Anderson of Fruition. This is the third video from The Lil Smokies’ latest live album Live at the Bluebird. The videos were all recorded in Denver, Colorado at the Bluebird Theater in late 2018.

Attendees gathered gracefully for the 7th Annual ARISE Music Festival at Sunrise Ranch in Loveland, Colorado to set intentions, relish in world-renowned teaching, and dance their hearts away to some of the best national musical acts and pioneers in our beloved music scene. With over 450 programmed acts, Arise Festival covered a lot of ground in bringing top-notch entertainment and education to their guests.

Music magnifies human emotions, highlighting both the weight of daily struggles and the uplift of personal triumphs with the same sensitivity and sympathy. Co-Founder of Portland-based folk-rock band Fruition, singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Jay Cobb Anderson accepts the responsibility of capturing that dichotomy via his solo output. Moreover, he distills these universal experiences into hummable, hypnotic, and heartfelt anthems steeped in storytelling folk tradition and amplified by unabashed rock ‘n’ roll energy.
