Warwick, NY 10990
While the Valley has an impressive number of musicians who have mastered a single instrument (while tinkering around with others), few can claim they’re truly fluent on several. Meet Warwick-based E’lissa Jones, whose interest in playing music began at age five when she began singing harmonies with her two sisters. Jones is an accomplished singer, violinist, pianist, and guitarist. Toss in the fact that she’s also a songwriter — her repertoire includes almost 300 originals spanning many genres, from rock to jazz and R&B, or some combination of all three — and you’ve got an impressive Jack-of-all-trades. She’s recorded three albums, the latest being Like Water (2011), and she performs often within the tristate area. Check out her velvety-smooth voice this month at the Warwick Applefest on October 14.
