“Walk Alone was selected as the JET Magazine “Editors Pick of the Week” for their May 3rd issue.
“Pop-soul artist PJ Morton returns to his gospel roots on Let Go, with his father, veteran gospel artist Bishop Paul S. Morton, on PJ’s new CD, Walk Alone. You will get your praise on and find peace with the song’s passionate plea: “Let go and let God.” PJ’s offerings include the single The One, Forever, dedicated to his wife, and I Need Your Love, where PJ communicates a man’s vulnerable need for his woman. R&B singer Tweet makes a guest appearance on the reggae-flavored LoveYou More. “My father and family always allowed me to be me, and music was my outlet for creativity,” says PJ of his soulful pop sound.””
““A popular presence in the indie soul movement, singer/songwriter/pianist PJ Morton shines brighter than ever on his fifth album, “Walk Alone.” What first catches you on this tight, 10-song set are its vibrant, soulful pop melodies, accented with just the right amount of sax, trumpet and strings. The other half of Morton’s satisfying one-two punch is tied to his personal—yet always relatable—lyrics that color in his life story about romance, relationships and the trials and tribulations of being a preacher’s kid. Tying the whole package together: his sonorous tenor. Morton accomplishes a rare contemporary feat these days on “Walk Alone”—a seamless album without one skip-worthy track. It’s time for one of indie soul’s shining stars to receive the mainstream spotlight he deserves.””
