Biography

By Kierstin Casella (2006)

The first thing you notice about JJ Heller is a wide grin that stretches across her face and welcomes you in as a friend, whether you’ve known her for years or are shaking her hand for the very first time. These days especially, the twenty-five year old west coast native has a lot to be happy about.

In March 2006, she independantly released her third record (scheduled for national release in November 2006), Only Love Remains, showcasing her pure, penetrating voice, and opening the door to a bold new range of songs. JJ, along with her husband Dave (who serves as guitarist, manager, and co-writer) recorded the distinctive album at Nashville’s Sputnik Sound with Grammy-winning producer Mitch Dane (Jars of Clay, Bebo Norman.)

“I found that JJ has an unadulterated approach to song writing. Her songs actually spoke to me, where a lot of Christian music is the same message with different words,” explains Dane. “ live their art, and I never felt like they were trying too hard to be something they weren’t.”

In addition to JJ and Dave’s prominent talents, Only Love Remains features Bryan Sutton (Dixie Chicks, The Chieftains) on mandolin, guitar and banjo; David Henry (Over the Rhine) on cello; Ben Shive (Andrew Peterson) on piano; Andy Hubbard (Little Big Town, Fernando Ortega) on drums, Aaron Sands (Jars of Clay) on bass; with Jeremy Casella (singer/songwriter) and Andrew Osenga (Caedmon’s Call) on guitars/backing vocals.

    at my first listen, i thought she was Christina Perry or Sarah McLachlan . so i guess my mistake means she's singing well whatever !

    Did anyone else notice that "Love Me" and "What Love Really Means" are the same song only one is an acoustic version?? Why would you release different versions of the same song on different albums with different song titles???? Just saying.

    OK, I'm in no way religious (evidently she's a Christian Rock girl) but I came across the song "Love Me" and I immediately downloaded some of her music. She has a gorgeous voice. If it has a spiritual undertone, then that's alright by me!

    I'm not in to Christian music at all... but I like JJ Heller. She performed at my university today and I liked her style/sound. When she and her husband played together I was reminded of husband-and-wife duo the Weepies. I also appreciated how she didn't name-drop Jesus ever five seconds as most of the Christian artists do. I am a secular man, but I like Ms. Heller's music.
