Review: JJ Heller's new album LOVED!

JJ Heller has a wonderfully smooth voice.  The music of Loved was beautiful.  I found myself thinking that this is just the kind of music I'd like to listen to in a coffee shop.  It's not overpowering like so many contemporary Christian songs.  My children, ages 11, 13, and 15 enjoyed it just as much as I did.  They were able to identify that while it has percussion, it is not a clanging cymbals kind of percussion.  The lyrics were a mixture of worship and an outreach to those who are hurting.  God's love and kindness as well as the beauty of dedicated, loving friendship were expressed.  Listen for yourself.  I am so glad to have this album.  We listened in the car.  I didn't find it distracting at all. 

Now, listen for yourself.

About JJ Heller's LOVED
When JJ Heller and her husband/co-writer, Dave, began writing for their sixth studio album LOVED, life looked a few shades darker, more painful and confusing than it had during the work on their work of the recent past. Over the past few years, the duo steered much of their material toward the whimsical and simple joys of life, love and new parenthood. But, when confronted by illness, death and broken marriages within their community, the Hellers chose to stay true to the weight of their season of life when crafting lyrics this time around.
