Fruiting Bodies from Montreal, Canada do KEX, Reykjavík, Iceland 


Fruiting Bodies are an eclectic trio of women vocalists and a harpist based in Montreal. They began writing, arranging and performing together in 2009, and since then have toured the East and West coasts of Canada and the U.S. Their performances are captivating, intimate and soulful.

Their name is a 

reference to the fertility of our bodies as well as of our minds. It is a technical term used to describe above-ground fungal growth- mushrooms! But below the surface there lies a vast network of mycelium from which it is grown. In a metaphorical sense it refers to the unconscious thought and feeling lying beneath the surface that emerges from those depths in the form of our words, our creative ideas, that which springs forth from us, our fruiting bodies.

In 2013, Fruiting Bodies recorded their first full-length album, Fascia, ranging in style from folk, a cappella, spoken word and contemporary classical. They are looking forward to touring Iceland in summer of 2018 in preparation for a full European tour in 2019.
