Blossom in Portland - Fruition

Mimi Naja - Mandolin/Vocals, Kellen Asebroek - Acoustic Guitar/Vocals, Jay Cobb Anderson - Electric Guitar/Harmonica/Vocals , Keith Simon - Upright Bass, Tyler Thompson - Drums

Fruition the accidental bluegrass rising stars of the Portland music scene. When formed in '08 Kellen says none of Fruition's members was well-versed in bluegrass or folk. A chance meeting between Kellen and Georgia transplant Mimi soon had the two playing on the streets and small bars, and soon after Jay Cobb Anderson and bassist Keith Simon, both transplants from Lewiston, Idaho we're drawn into Mimi's magnetic force and together the sound that came out was old-time folk and bluegrass. With two excellent releases under their belt the band is set to begin production of their next recording, their first full-length album with drums. Asebroek expects the group to test their wings outside the folk/bluegrass realm. Pay attention to these young musicians fate seems to be guiding them. Fruition's NEW ALBUM Kickstarter Campaign
