The time is now for one of the industrys best-kept secrets: PJ Morton. The Maroon 5 keyboardist/backing vocalist made his major label debut on May 14 with New Orleans, his first album for Young Money Entertainment/Republic Records. One listen to Mortons anticipated project quickly reveals why the multi-talent became a favorite on the indie R&B circuit and an in-demand songwriter/producer and also why the limitless talent will be a game changer for the Lil Wayne-founded Young Money. New Orleans marks the Cash Money imprints first step toward broadening its already wide appeal, thanks to a hit-making and award-winning roster that includes founder Lil Wayne, Drake and Nicki Minaj. And theres no better ambassador to musically personify that message than Morton, whose self-described soulful pop seamlessly spans multiple genres from gospel and R&B/funk to pop and rock. Ive always pushed boundaries, says Morton, but I always remain true to who I am musically. New Orleans is a natural progression of who I am. I cant explain it except through my music. That proves it better than anything I can say. Building that case is Only One featuring Stevie Wonder. Quickly garnering strong reaction following its January premiere onBillboard.com, the song is the lead single from New Orleans. Armed with an infectious hook and a head-boppin groove, the up-tempo number showcases Mortons velvety tenor, songwriting skills and musicianship, accented by Wonders distinctive harmonica.
PJ Morton http://www.pjmortononline.com/ 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. By the same token, "pop" music is not genre specific it simply engulfs whatever is popular with a majority at a particular time. 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. The Como Brothers Band The Como Brothers Band is quickly becoming a recognizable fixture in many music venues and festivals throughout the Northeast. Formed by songwriters Matt and Andrew Como, the band is known for their catchy lyrics and contagious melodies.
