iTunes Review

On her fifth album, JJ Heller keeps things sweet, simple and sincere. When I’m With You combines the empathetic songwriting touch of Sara Groves with the airy, playful spirit of Colbie Caillat. Heller’s wistful, understated vocal style matches the diary-like quality of her lyrics and the homespun folkiness of her melodies. Her love songs — particularly “Tell It Again,” “Boat Song” and “Until You Came Along” — have a wide-eyed honesty about them that transcends any sense of calculation or cliché. The breezy shuffle “When I’m With You,” addressed to her daughter Lucy, is especially winning. Heller’s Christian outlook is most clearly revealed in “Kingdom Come” (a humble, personal hymn) and “What Love Really Means” (a meditation upon God’s unconditional love). Among the more downbeat songs found here, “Olivianna” deals with the death of a young child with sensitivity and a measure of hope. JJ’s husband Dave's acoustic guitar work gives these tracks a warm, natural glow, enhanced by Mitch Dane and Ben Shive’s uncluttered production.

First Review!!!

Dave and JJ!!! Congrats on a wonderful album...been waiting for a while for this and it sounds great!!!

New Album

I'm still an avid fan of JJ, but I feel like this album was a bit overproduced and was missing that simplistic sound that I grew to love from her. While the songs are still beautiful, meaning, and lyrical, I was still left with a longing to just hear JJ's lovely voice coupled with an acoustic guitar, minimal drums, and a tinkling of piano/strings/organ. However, the album is still wonderful and a must buy.


Can't wait to listen - the single is great so I know the rest will be too. Love jj heller!!
