Fruitfly is an emo band still trying to figure out how to write emo songs based out of Cleveland, Ohio. Combining disparate influences from emo acts like The Brave Little Abacus and Weatherday to bedroom pop staples like Rex Orange County and Dayglow, Fruitfly's music pairs melancholic lyrics with intricate instrumentals to make a compelling new sound.

Fruitfly began as Kyle's solo project in 2020 and he self-released Fruitfly's debut album Running On Fumes in July of 2021.
In the time since the project has grown into a five piece band gigging across the Cleveland/Akron area playing energetic sets that switch on a dime between blistering bangers and introspective ballads at venues including The Grog Shop, The Outpost, No Class, and multiple DIY venues.
The band is aiming to release their second album, When the Weather is Nice, in early/mid 2024.
