URBAN Tasha Cobbs One Place Live (Motown Gospel) FOR FANS OF: Kierra Sheard, Anita Wilson QQQQ Tasha Cobbs took the Gospel world by storm with her debut, Grace, which sat atop the charts for nearly two years and earned multiple Dove Awards as well as a GRAMMY. Suffice it to say, a lot of ears are waiting for One Place Live, Cobbs’ passionate new release that features Jamie Grace and Kierra Sheard, among many others. From the opening fire on “Immediately” to the tender “Sense It,” Cobbs’ charisma and power continues to shine. –Matt Conner WE LIKE: “Put A Praise On It” ROc k Tree63 Land (Fuel Music) FOR FANS OF: Sanctus Real, Kevin Max, U2 QQQQ For a band relatively inac- tive for seven-plus years, any sort of return should warrant a curious ear. But the delivery of Tree63’s Land deserves nothing short of a ticker-tape parade. Expect a flood of enchantingly creative melodies and arrangements perfectly matched with the vocal acrobatics of front man John Ellis. In fact, the original trio remains intact on this triumphant instant classic. Standouts include the warring “Standing On It,” melodic “The Storm,” and reflective “Never Had A Winter.” –Kevin Sparkman WE LIKE: “Standing On It” CCMMagazine.com POP JJ Heller Sound Of A Living Heart (Stone Table Records) FOR FANS OF: Christina Perri, Audrey Assad, Laura Story QQQ It’s impossible to be down when listening to JJ Heller. On Sound Of A Living Heart, Heller continues her proven formula of innocent melodies, heart- moving lyrics and inviting musical moments. Adeptly exhibiting the good in life, Heller’s new batch skillfully encourages, from the glowing “Meant To Be,” to the deeply spiritual “Holy Ground,” to the lead single “Fully Known.” The inspired “Father-Daughter Dance,” featuring Sanctus Real’s Mark Hammitt, brings out the best in Heller as a writer. –Kevin Sparkman WE LIKE: “Meant To Be”
