Interview with JJ Heller

Bringin' it Backwards

Together with American Songwriter, we had the pleasure of interviewing JJ Heller over Zoom video! At some point in our lives, we all want someone to believe in us, to remind us there is beauty in the world, and to tell us that everything’s going to be ok.THERE IS A CHILD IN ALL OF US, AND THAT’S WHO JJ HELLER MAKES MUSIC FOR.Her soothing voice and inspiring melodies blend with poignant lyrics to stir the hearts of listeners crossing generational boundaries.Heller and her husband, Dave, work creatively together co-writing and recording her songs. After 17 years of making music, Heller has eleven full-length albums to her name. JJ releases a song every month in 2017 (those releases alone have over 55 million streams). JJ doesn't fit squarely into a genre, so she's had to carve a path on her own. She works hand in hand with her husband, Dave (songwriting, performing, recording, video production, etc.)In 2020 she launched her podcast, Instrumental.We want to hear from you!

#320: "You Already Know" by JJ Heller

More Than a Name

Today has not caught God off-guard. No matter the circumstance you find yourself in, He's already there and He already knows what will happen next.

How to Find Your Purpose When Plans Fall Apart With JJ Heller – 129

This Grit and Grace Life

Women love to plan. Some of us had our whole lives planned out as little girls, writing our stories down with brightly colored pens in flowery little journals. Our guest, singer/songwriter JJ Heller, understands this well and took it to heart. In light of our new reality due to COVID-19, she wrote a song reflecting on all the plans that have come undone. Traveling and trips canceled, Easter celebrations changed, and so many plans for the best summer ever—poured down the drain…vacations, parties, and simple joys like swimming in the local pools. Right? But in this grit and grace life, things are always subject to change. Virus or no virus, life is full of unexpected turns; sometimes we are put on paths we never intended to follow. In this episode, JJ shares her journey. She believed her future was one of an athlete, but to her surprise she was destined to become a musician, writing and recording her own songs. Hearing her story reminds us that even the best and most logical plans sometimes have to change. God is always at work, preparing us for what He has next, and that is usually where we find our own individual “voice.” He has a purpose in all He does, and even though we may not realize it at first, His purposes become ours as well! In this shifting season, we know that you will find hope, encouragement, and confidence as you listen to JJ’s experience. And make sure you check out the video of her new song “You Already Know” here or watch it below!

Does Slow Growth Mean You're On the Wrong Path? JJ Heller on What To Do With the In Between Time

The Mary Marantz Show

What does it look like to grow slowly when no one is watching? How do we know if we are supposed to keep pushing through - even when it feels like things are happening painfully s  l  o w? Whether you’re a business owner, mom, creative with a vision, or all the above - it can feel so defeating when it seems like the world around you is achieving the things you desire. If you’ve ever fallen victim to the comparison monster or the ‘if I could only…” syndrome - this episode is for you. Listen in as Mary brings on singer-songwriter, JJ Heller, who has experienced both the slow and expedited seasons of the creative path. After landing a song on You Think You Can Dance, the catchy melody accrued over 1 million views on YouTube. But JJ’s story is much more than numbers and metrics. Listen in as JJ shares her story around anxiety, overcoming the fear of slow growth, what to do with the ‘in between time’, and how to find redemption in the hard parts of the journey. If you relate to the words of the ever-fabulous jazz legend, Miles Davis, “Man, sometimes it takes you a long time to sound like yourself,” - this episode is for you, friend.
