As Long As We Can Breathe [edit]
by JJ Weeks Band | Genre: Pop/Rock | Release Date: April 08, 2016
 

As Long As We Can Breathe delivers strong mid-tempos with “Ahead Of Me” and “Jealous,” which was co-written by Mike Weaver (Big Daddy Weave), Jonathan Smith and Tony Wood. The softer ballads include “Love Showed Up,” “In The Name Of,” “Count Them All” and the single, “Alive In Me.” I may be hard pressed on every side/But I won’t be crushed, I’ll be alright/I may be doubting the place I’m in/But I know the ending/I know who wins/I may be down, but I’m not out/You’re not finished yet. “Rooftops” is another standout selection from the album with its powerful lyrics about the passion of Christ followers and the featured performance of hip-hop artist Tedashii, courtesy of Reach Records.

Made for Success | Posted February 10, 2016
So you like the styles currently popular at Christian radio? Can't get enough of the accessible pop/rock that sounds great at Winter Jams and festivals? Then I have good news for you: JJ Weeks Band is here with a delivery of high-quality tunes to turn up the volume on. 

You might already know them for hit single "Let Them See You," which was also recorded by Colton Dixon on his debut album. Their full length Centricity debut release As Long As We Can Breathe introduces them in an all new way this year.

Lead single "Alive in Me" is a soaring pop anthem that should capture significant radio love. "Rooftops" brings in Tedashii for a performance that helps make the track one of the album's most memorable, both for its rapped bridge and slightly more energetic approach.

Softer cuts like "Higher" are enjoyable and catchy entries that demand to be heard on your local AC radio. The music is familiar, drawing favorable comparisons to acts like Sidewalk Prophets and NewSong at times. Yet, the music is well crafted enough to stand on its own and never fade too far into any kind of overly familiar trappings. I could definitely see several of these songs becoming mainstays in the CCM world for much of 2016.

The Bottom Line: It's not going to reshape the CCM genre, but it will give Christian radio some welcome hits, and that makes it a winner.
