ArtWhat’s in a Name? Where Did “Elison” Come From?

What’s in a Name? Where Did “Elison” Come From?

I [Marissa] named the project in homage to my origins: my maiden name is Cornelison and my father is a musician himself. My dad’s a long time jazz musician so my love of this art form really stemmed from seeing him perform my entire life. I pulled “elison” out to honor him and his influence in my life, now that I’ve finally started pursuing music for myself. I wanted to know if there was any meaning in the word and quickly discovered it meant “division” or “separation,” which felt serendipitous because that was one huge effect of this pandemic and ultimately, the catalyst that led me to start playing. There was no other option. I had to use elison. It was too perfect.
