Fruition - Holehearted Fools RANDM 070


"One of the best surprises of the night was the opening performance by Fruition. The Portland based bluegrass outfit made their appearance at the fan-favorite venue in the heart of Cleveland, the Beachland Ballroom. Saturday was the first time I had the chance to experience Fruition in all their glory as I stood in awe watching this truly elated group of artists and musicians let their souls shine right before our eyes. Their delivery can be best described as genuine and organic, something the crowd took to very well. Mimi Naja on vocals and mandolin raged with overzealous, unadulterated fluidity, maintaining a Janis Joplin undertone as she tore down the roof. The instrumentation was exceptional, a sound that was on point with a only the best jamgrass pickers on the scene." – Suzy G, Live Music Daily
