    FRUITION & BIRDS OF CHICAGO FruitionSharing a common love of music, whiskey and life on the road, Fruition were originally brought together by the lure of adventure. For the last five years, the Portland, OR string infused quintet has racked up the miles playing sold out shows in their adopted hometown and garnering new fans across the country. On July 30th, Fruition will release Just One of Them Nights, an album that finds the band tackling the many struggles and successes that come along with living a vagabond lifestyle and the search for artistic clarity. Fruition have become arduous road warriors traveling the country and showcasing their adventures and experiences through song. In 2011, Fruition recorded the EP It Wont Be Long, the bands first effort as a five-piece. Soon after, the groups three prominent songwriters, Anderson, Asebroek and Naja, discovered they had penned over forty tunes. The band knew it was time for the next level of their journey to create a top-notch album recorded in a professional recording studio and capturing their foot-stomping, high-energy string-infused songs. With no sign of slowing down, the band takes each day as it comes. From broken down vans and whiskey shots, to the lovers and loved-ones who check-in through the miles, at the end of the day its Just One of Them Nights for this talented bunch who are experiencing a radiant present and looking towards an even brighter future.Birds of Chicagohttp://youtu.be/fWXQV05RPykBirds of Chicago is a collective built around JT Nero ( of JT and The Clouds, Chicago, USA) and Allison Russell ( of PoGirl, Montreal, Canada) they are constant vagabonds touring almost 11 months last year in support of their debut, self-titled album. Their brand of rock and roll poetry can be a little hard to categorize, for people that insist on categorizing their voices are undoubtedly the centerpiece, while the band pressure cooks country, soul, blues in a way that forces some people to reach for extra hyphens in their description they used to use the phrase rock n roll to describe this American mash up Birds of Chicago still do. Nero and Russell are most at home on the road pick almost any night in the next two years and you can bet they will be in some festival, theater, pub, VFW hall, roller rink (they wish) or living room dovetailing their voices, singing their songs of hope, despair, love. and electric seahorses. And honey bee apocalypses. And ice cream. Its familiar and strange stuff the everyday and the magical. Come see em, they wont be hard to find.
