VH1 Songwriting Contest Finalist JJ McGuigan Feels Like “Home” On New Single And Lyric Video Release

JJ McGuigan caught the attention of radio programmers and music journalists with “Letter,” the
debut single from his EP, Dissociative. “Letter” received both critical praise and airplay chart
success, reaching the New Music Weekly country chart Top 80 and the SortHits.com Christian Song
chart Top 10. The song also earned McGuigan an Akademia Award for Best Alternative Song in
January 2017. Indie-Spoonful.com said, “The lyrics to this song (“Letter), and every song on the EP,
are dripping with insight. This song is like a prayer and McGuigan sounds like an angel.”

Now, McGuigan returns with a new single and lyric video for “Home,” the opening track on
Dissociative. Like “Letter,” “Home” was written by McGuigan and features lead vocals by Garrett
Crow. Former Strike Magazine editor and Guardian Liberty Voice writer, Brett David Stewart says
about “Home:” “There’s an ethereal quality to the writing that is particularly lovely; it feels honest and
true.” Jamsphere Magazine raves: “Not many other singer-songwriters out there put more soul, grit,
and heart into their music than McGuigan.”

“Home” reached the Roots Music Report Top 40 Americana Songs radio airplay chart. Watch the
official lyric video for “Home” above

Dissociative is available for download at all major online music retailers.
