Fruition transforms pain and heartache into something truly glorious with their fifth album, Watching It All Fall Apart. Their songwriting is sharp and nuanced, their sonic palette more daringly expansive. The Portland, Oregon-based band’s full-hearted intensity ultimately gives the album a transcendent power. Featuring Jay Cobb Anderson (vocals, lead guitar, harmonica), Kellen Asebroek (vocals, rhythm guitar, piano), Mimi Naja (vocals, mandolin, electric and acoustic guitar), Jeff Leonard (bass), Tyler Thompson (drums, banjo), Fruition displays the dynamic musicality they’ve shown since making their debut in 2008, embracing their rock-and-roll sensibilities to bring a gritty vitality to each piece.
