We’re thrilled to welcome PJ Morton to Electric this Winter.

PJ Morton is an American R&B singer, musician, producer and one of the keyboardists in the pop rock band Maroon 5. In 2012, Morton released his first solo recording, the free EP Following My First Mind, on Lil Wayne’s Young Money label. Adam Levine was featured on the lead single, “Heavy”; other musicians on the EP include Lil Wayne, Jazmine Sullivan and Chantae Cann. In 2013, Morton released his first major-label debut album, New Orleans.

After winning Grammy Awards for his songwriting and production of India.Arie’s Interested, Morton won Dove and Stellar Awards in 2008. His collaboration with gospel crooner DeWayne Woods resulted in a huge career high. The testimony Morton articulated in “Let Go, Let God” catapulted up the charts for a record seventy weeks and won numerous awards and accolades, most importantly bringing PJ’s early influences full circle.

Morton was also noticed by AR Rahman (composer for Slumdog Millionaire), who asked Morton to contribute “Sajna” to the soundtrack and movie for the Vince Vaughn comedy Couples Retreat. Morton has also produced and written for musicians such as Jermaine Dupri, LL Cool J, Jagged Edge, Monica, India.Arie, gospel musicians Fred Hammond, Men of Standard, and Heather Headley. In 2009, he published a book entitled Why Can’t I Sing About Love?. In it, he ruminates on the idea that church music and secular music about love can come from the same place if God and love are the same.
