Bride & Groom is an Indie Folk duo based out of Montréal, Quebec, consisting of guitar playing and songwriter Jesse Daniel Smith and cellist Kaitlyn Raitz. When the couple reached a musical crossroads in early 2014, the group was formed in the hopes of performing harmonically driven, contemporary songs that continue the folk tradition.
After a successful IndieGoGo campaign they were able to write, record, and produce their self-titled EP that is slated for a summer 2014 release.
