What You Need To Know
It's been almost two years since the JJ Weeks Band has released any new albums. So, it was a surprise for fans when JJ Weeks released his new solo EP The Sound of Freedom. JJ recently signed an agreement with Radiate Music as a solo artist, so this seems to be the beginning of an exciting new season for JJ Weeks.
What it Sounds Like
JJ has brought us an EP that has those beautiful acoustic and pop sounds that he carries into all of his songs. The songs on the album tackle struggle we face in our day-to-day life, like in JJ's song "Days Like These." We all have bad days, and JJ used this song to share how God remains faithful even through the struggles of life.
The main theme of this album is that in any circumstance we may be facing, God will be with us. That message is clearly expressed in the song, "Here With Me." The chorus of the song recites, "Even when it's hard to see/You're here with me/I can feel you're by my side/You are my only hope /There's no where else to go/God, I need you here tonight/Here with me." The Bible promises that God will never leave us or forsake us. So, I love how this is a consistent theme throughout the album.
Best Song on the Record
The best song on the record would have to be "Got This Feeling." It's really just a fun pop song, with a great motivational message. It's a reminder that everything is going to be alright, and there's still hope.

Overall, JJ's EP is a reminder of hope and it will be an encouragement to so many. The lyrics are relatable and will help you understand that God is always by your side. You can stream The Sound of Freedom now on Spotify.
