JJ Heller’s Sixth Studio Album
LOVED
In Stores Tomorrow

Phoenix, AZ – LOVED, the 6th studio album by acclaimed indie singer songwriter JJ Heller, hits stores tomorrow, March 12, 2013.  Along with the standard version being sold in outlets worldwide, a deluxe digital edition with 4 additional acoustic songs is available from JJHeller.com, iTunes and other digital outlets.

LOVED is already receiving rave reviews, including NewReleaseTuesday.com giving the album a 5 star review, and boldly calling the single “Who You Are” the #1 song of 2013.

“My husband, Dave, and I set out to make something beautiful and true when we recorded LOVED. It’s thrilling to hear that our new songs connect with listeners because it’s why we create music in the first place. To receive glowing reviews is a real honor as well,” states JJ.

For most of her career, JJ has been known for her delicate vocals which are flawlessly paired with her vulnerable and transparent lyrics. The songs on LOVED were born out of a season of trials and tragic events for the Heller’s friends and family.  For JJ and Dave, the album serves as a reminder to hope in the future, to step out of fear and trust that God is who He says He is.
“LOVED is a collection of songs that belong together; there’s a common thread connecting all of them,” JJ says. “It’s setting our sights on the horizon instead of the few steps ahead. It’s an album about resolve. It’s about steeling ourselves for the journey just in front of us, but also being assured of who we are and where our destiny lies… When we know we are loved, we can be open to risks because we are confident in our identity.”

JJ Heller is currently on the road, supporting Sanctus Real on The Promises Tour.  Also on the tour are Unspoken and Bread of Stone.

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.
