Jessica Dawn is a pop/rock singer/songwriter in Nashville, TN. Although country music is often highlighted when Nashville comes to mind, Jessica breaks the mold as an impassioned pop/rock artist with keen writing abilities. Audiences are moved by her compelling lyrics, unique sound, and fiery performances.

With her new release, "Elevator," Jessica reminds us of her ability to write a catchy pop melody that replays in our minds long after the first listen. It's an uptempo feel-good song that explores the theme of gratitude—a love song for those special people in life who continuously offer their encouragement and support.
