PJ Morton is a versatile musician, songwriter, producer who has been involved in contemporary gospel, contemporary rock, and R&B recordings since the early 2000s. In 2002, he released an album with his short-lived group Freestyle Nation, and contributed to India.Arie’s Grammy-winning album Voyage to India. During the next few years, he released genre-crossing independent albums such as Emotions and Perfect Song while collaborating with Anthony David, Faith Evans, Monica, and Kierra “KiKi” Sheard; during these years, his biggest success was the gospel hit “Let Go,” written for DeWayne Woods. Morton’s 2010 album, Walk Alone, featured his own version of the song, and he and his father performed the GMA Dove winner for the live release Bishop Morton Celebrates 25 Years of Music. The same year, PJ joined Maroon 5 as a performing keyboardist and background vocalist. The work didn’t slow his solo career; he signed to Young Money and released the album New Orleans – featuring guest appearances from Stevie Wonder, Busta Rhymes, and Maroon 5’s Adam Levine – in May 2013.
