"PJ Morton: PJ Morton coined the phrase “soulful pop” to describe his approach to music years ago. His explanation was as complex as it was simple. The concept of soulfulness can seamlessly span genres, yet remains tangible. PJ’s refusal to be defined by one dimension of sound resulted in musical ingenuity. Today the keyboardist/vocalist for superstar band Maroon 5 is simultaneously the newest solo act to join Young Money, PJ Morton found his balance, and the industry followed.
PJ’s first musical experiment was a band entitled Freestyle Nation. Ironically the band made its debut at the same time as Maroon 5. “In Maroon 5 I witnessed that blend of soulful music with a pop/rock vibe and I remember wanting my band to be signed to the same label because it was evident they understood the sound.” After nabbing a Grammy for his songwriting and production of India Arie’s “Interested,” PJ went on to win Dove and Stellar awards. His collaboration with gospel crooner DeWayne Woods resulted in a huge career high. The testimony PJ articulated in “Let Go, Let God,” catapulted up the charts for a record seventy weeks and garnering numerous awards and accolades, most importantly bringing PJ’s early influences full circle.
New Orleans:
With over a decade in the industry and a handful of independent albums to his credit, Morton sounds undeniably seasoned on New Orleans, supported by a shifting lineup of musicians, appearances from obvious hero Stevie Wonder, Busta Rhymes, and Maroon 5’s Adam Levine, and a couple assists from fellow genre-crossing producer Warryn Campbell (Mary Mary). ""New Orleans,"" offers an introspective take on his life and internal desire to return to the roots of the music that made him happy years ago. To that end Morton has made the album he set out to make. The album is his most polished work, largely made of relatable songs that deal in devotion, working through conflict, and walking away. It’s agreeably middle of the road with a few standouts. “Only One”, which features a Stevie harmonica solo and sounds as if it could have been written by Ne-Yo, is a joyous highlight, while “Work It Out” and “Trade It All” are among the year’s better adult R&B ballads. The less memorable material is saved by Morton’s likability and warmth."
