Fruition

Portland Oregon-based five-piece Fruition play an earnest style of electric bluegrass.  Their sound draws from the tropes of that great American tradition, but the band delivers it with the energy of a street-rockin’ band that lives for the road.  Throw in some excellent musicianship and heartfelt lyrics and you’ve got a recipe to get all the boots at the bar stomping.  Check out their video “I’ll Never Sing Your Name” and then follow in their footsteps to their fave spots around Portland.
