JJ HELLER Readies to Release Sixth Studio Album,
Hits the Road, Supporting Sanctus Real on "The Promises" Tour

Phoenix, AZ – JJ Heller is the picture of a true working mother.  While raising her two young girls, Heller has been busy putting the final touches on her upcoming album LOVED (releasing March 12), and preparing to hit the road as the main support for Sanctus Real in eighteen cities during the first two months of "The Promises" Tour, also featuring Unspoken and Bread of Stone.

“Our family has enjoyed a wonderful time of rest at home as we’ve worked toward the release of LOVED,” Heller says. “Now that we’re finally on the verge of it’s street date, I’m so excited to hit the road and start sharing these new songs live. And I couldn’t be happier to be opening for Sanctus Real. It’s going to be a wonderful night of music!”

JJ’s soft voice and introspective lyrics first hit the spotlight in 2009 when her song "Your Hands" was featured on the hit show So You Think You Can Dance? and eventually found a life of its own on radio across the country.  Since that time, her career has become the picture of indie success, including numerous national TV placements and her song, "What Love Really Means", being named the best Christian Song on’s “Best of 2010” list.

JJ’s trademark ability to be transparent and vulnerable resonates throughout LOVED.  The 10 new songs serve as a reminder not to let go of hope, to step out of fear and into trust in spite of life’s present struggles.

“Our entire family hits the road this spring, and even though it can be taxing at times, I’m thrilled to be sharing such a special time with our girls. We’re honored that Sanctus Real asked us to join them on this journey.  It’s such a blessing to keep our family together as we travel, and with two girls under 5 years old on the bus with us, we’re sure to make some lasting memories. Perhaps Lucy and Nora will even make an appearance on stage!”
