Fruition Announces “Live, Vol. 1” with Bassist Jeff Leonard…
Fruition is happy to announce their first-ever live release, “Live, Vol. 1” which is due out January 7th, 2022. Drummer and Mixing Engineer Tyler Thompson shares, “This album is a recording of a show at Visual Arts Collective in Boise, ID on February 10th, 2019. It was the end of a long tour, so we were definitely firing on all cylinders. Luckily, we didn’t even know the show was being recorded to multitrack, so the energy couldn’t be more honest and rowdy. It was so fun going back through these live tracks that it makes us feel there may be many more live albums in future.”
The first track featured from the live release is, “I Don’t Mind” which closed out 2016’s “Labor of Love”, an album that helped bring the band to national prominence. Singer/songwriter Mimi Naja (vocals/mandolin/guitars) says the song is “about when living your truth doesn’t align with someone else’s expectation of you, and not swaying from that truth even if it hurts someone else.”
Bassist Jeff Leonard had begun putting up Go Pro cameras at every show on that winter tour and honing his editing chops with all of the footage on the long drives between shows.
