Podcast: JJ Heller on Creativity, Anxiety, and Comparison
JJ Heller is a full-time musician based in Nashville, TN. She and her husband Dave, who co-writes and plays guitar, have been traveling for over 15 years sharing their music with audiences around the country. JJ’s deepest motivation is to remind her audiences that they are not alone, and that they are deeply loved and fully known by the Creator of the universe. In November of 2018, JJ released her 10th full-length album, I Dream of You (Vol. II), a collection of 12 of her favorite songs from the last 75 years, plus three original songs. Now that the record is out, JJ is going to resume releasing a new song on the first Friday of each month in 2019 - and the first one, Big Love, Small Moments, is such a gift to listen to. You can find her music on Spotify, YouTube, Amazon, iTunes, or wherever you listen to music online, and on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
