Style: Pop with subtle jazz influence; compare to Ginny Owens, Audrey Assad

Top Tracks: "Not Myself Anymore," "Fireflies," "Moving On"

Twenty-something Jessa Anderson just might be headed for the songwriter status of Ginny Owens or Sara Groves if Not Myself Anymore is any indication of what listeners can expect. Her light-hearted pop, bright, clear voice and honest songwriting give her wide-range accessibility, especially with themes of identity, broken friendship, and forward motion that aren't exclusively Christian experiences. Stylistically, Anderson still has substantial progress to make, but the potential is there, as evidenced in freer, jazz-infused tracks like "Not Myself Anymore." Meanwhile, her vulnerability and praise in the midst of pain give this album its real value.
