It’s Great When Music Is Both Good and Free

If you’re unfamiliar with singer/songwriter JJ Heller you are just like I was only a few hours ago. She’s a like Ingrid Michaelson combined with the musical stylings of Lost & Found — simple, accessible, fun to listen to, catchy hooks and (most importantly) excellent lyrical content.
Now — the reason that I have formed an opinion of her music and am now posting it here is because you can download her new album for free in its entirety. That’s zero dollars, friends. Zero with a “z” (Canadian friends, ‘zed’).

Let’s face it. Most free music is free for a reason, either because 1)It’s been recorded on someone’s desktop reel-to-reel or 2)It’s just not that good. In this scenario we find neither.
As a Worship Pastor, I can already see how some of her songs could tie into a message series. As a radio DJ, I sense that this could be great music that’s positive and fun. As a husband, I’m going to wager that Emily will totally be into these tunes. And as a Dad, well, I need to go wipe up something that spilled. With that, I sign off.
