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" at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJ-9DbRCb6w.
