Let’s look at the creativity and courageousness exposing the truths, the deep meaning underfoot, like bugs after the rain, this past year has been insane. Rearranged and renamed, complaints unrestrained, this is the new normal. I’d wanted to write scripture about Shoe Fest, some sort of article of faith, a declaration of devotion to what made me fall in love with festivals in the first place… Alas, this is my iconoclast blast that shall be touted on Facebook groups across America, the finest in toilet reading material.

Fruition is happy to announce their first live show since March of 2020. The quintet will be appearing July 30th at the Dillon Amphitheater, with special guests Mipso.
As Covid 19 took over the world last March, Fruition were in the middle of their “Wild As The Night, Broken At The Break of Day” album tour. With their single “Dawn” charting at AAA and Americana radio, plus a full summer of festivals ahead, the band was forced to cancel their remaining shows and head home.
To mark the release of her brand-new solo EP “Nothing Has Changed”, Mimi Naja of Fruition will perform a live stream from Nashville’s Purple Building tonight at 9pm ET. While the EP was recorded at Fruition drummer Tyler Thompson’s studio, for tonight’s EP release show Naja will be joined by Anthony da Costa, PJ George, and Alex Bice.
The second track from Mimi Naja’s upcoming solo EP lands at all digital retailers today accompanied by an animated video from the muti-talented Deren Ney (Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers).
“Coin In My Pocket” is an upbeat song about renewal, alluding to the token chip of the Alcoholics Anonymous program being a tangible symbol of progress and life’s new season.

We are gonna have a harvest celebration Thanksgiving style 2020 with pickin’ and singin’ and dancin’ and movin,’... It's gonna be fun!”
On the heels of their critically acclaimed pair of 2019-2020 releases, Portland-based roots rockers Fruition have just released another two-pack of their signature sound; a two-track single featuring “For You,” a fan favorite from Broken at the Break of Day, and a brand new song, “Stand With You,” a direct message to those continuously on the front lines of the
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are faced with no choice but to postpone the first JBE Triple A SummitFest in Boulder, CO, scheduled for August 4-7, 2020, until August 2021. While we were looking forward to seeing all of our friends and colleagues as we celebrate the Triple A format, the priority is the health and safety of everyone in our Triple A community and the citizens of Boulder, CO, which has hosted us every summer for close to three decades.
