Fruition’s ‘Labor of Love’ Best Album Yet, Out Now + Tour Dates

Portland’s Fruition just melted our hearts, minds and souls with their new album released today on Randm Records, ‘Labor of Love.’ The quintet has taken their American core sound, along with those signature bluegrass, jam and folk vibes and fully blossomed their sound to cultivate an enrapturing, fearless and sophisticated self-produced album. 

Everything from the flawless, genuine lyrics and collaborative vocals, to Mimi Naja’s effortless mandolin and electric guitar playing, to the guest cello, dobro and fiddle players as well as Fruition’s already huge array of instrumentation, ‘Labor of Love,’ has truly brought into fruition the well-rounded, extremely talented and magical sound that makes this Portland quintet stand out and engrain themselves into the hearts, ears and minds of all who listen. 

Catch them tonight and tomorrow night in Portland, Oregon for their album release weekend shows at The Wonder Ballroom (tickets here!) with special guest Allie Kral of Yonder Mountain String Band (Friday) and Portland’s The Hill Dogs (Saturday). ‘Labor of Love‘ is available on a multitude of outlets. Find the one that best suits you and get to that laborious love of listening.
