of returning to the East Coast this fall!
Sarah: “Elevator” is your most recent single, and your third from “Kiss
Me Quiet.” What has fan reaction been for the single and the album since
Jess: Luckily I have been able to read the fan’s reaction on “Elevator”

increase when that song rolls around!
Sarah: 2015 and 2016 have been so huge for you – what are some of your

hoping to get back writing and maybe even into the studio.
Sarah: Do you have set plans for the New Year? A new record perhaps?
Jess: Perhaps, Haha! (Insert sly mysterious smile here.)
