DÎA is the project of LA based singer and composer Danielle Birrittella. Influenced by wartime ballads, art song, and pop of the 1950's and 1960's, her songs are written on the ukulele and piano. She often incorporates vocal pedals while composing to hear her voice abstracted.

Born on a Hindu ashram, Danielle was immersed in the singing of ceremonial sanskrit ragas, accompanied by traditional Indian instruments as a child. Early exposure to this sacred music led her to pursue Western Classical singing and eventually train as an opera singer throughout the U.S. and Europe, until she fell in love with songwriting.

A native of New England, and a graduate of New York University (BA) and California Institute of the Arts (MFA), she has lived and worked as an artist in New York, France, and Italy. Performances have included Disney Hall's REDCAT - Los Angeles, La Musica Lirica - Italy, The Chautauqua Institute - New York, La Main d'Or - Paris, and The Ludwig Foundation - Cuba.

Inspirée par son environnement immédiat, la société et la nature humaine, elle écrit des textes reflétant son vécu. Inspirantes et authentiques, ses paroles touchent et nous transposent dans son univers. Ses influences vont du folk rock à l'indie rock.

En 2012, elle crée sa première composition originale, Igloo, inspirée du quartier de Québec où elle habite, Limoilou. Lors de son passage à la 44ième édition du Festival International de la Chanson de Granby, Safia remporte le Prix SOCAN de la chanson primée pour cette chanson. Elle y présente aussi deux autres chansons, La laideur et Le cadeau. Suite à Granby, Safia a l’opportunité d’enregistrer ses chansons en studio avec Philippe Brault, Rick Haworth, José Major, Audrey-Michèle Simard et Guido Del Fabbro.

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.
