Feature Week – Elissa Jones; Musician, Singer, Songwriter

“Taylor’s words hit every chord of feelings my girls and I were going through.  She became our own mascot of sorts and we talked about her as if we knew her.  As if she was part of our lives.  She had an ability to strike when the iron was hot and hit the inner most thoughts of the three of us and she has never even met us.” ~ T-Swizzle, AccidentallyAllison
