Ethan Stewart and Susanna Kennedy make up the eclectic, Savannah based band known as “Lafayette.” The band combines violin, guitar and vocals in a country meets post-rock combination. Both were raised playing music and singing in the church – a fact that has undoubtedly shaped their style and approach to playing music. They approach their covers, which range anywhere from Alison Krauss to Drake to Bruce Springsteen, with a unique and fresh perspective.
Susanna began playing the violin and singing in church choirs at the age of six. She later picked up the guitar in her early twenties and began songwriting at that time.
From swaying pews to swaying bar stools Ethan began playing guitar and singing in church. Since then, he’s accompanied many artists in many different styles of music from hard rock, to folk, to R&B.
