PJ Morton just might be the busiest man in soul business. We say that with no exaggeration nor reservations. He’s the keyboardist for the world-renowned band Maroon 5, the musical director for world-renowned singer Solange, the head of his own independent record label, Morton Records, an in-demand producer, a loving husband and a doting father. Oh! And he’s also a solo recording artist. In fact, he’s recently released his fourth studio album Gumbo, which has received great reviews and major burn.
While the title of the album is a metaphor for the variety of subject matter discussed on the project, it could also serve as a strong metaphor for Mr. Morton's career. In our latest SoulBounce Q&A, the singer, songwriter and creative force that is PJ Morton shares the secrets behind the gumbo that is his music and his life and why New Orleans is such an innovative city.
