Maroon 5 Keyboardist Releases Major Label Debut
Although you might not know the name PJ Morton, chances are you’ve seen him on television as backing vocalist and keyboardist for Maroon 5.
Morton, 32, has actually been a behind-the-scenes fixture working with artists like India.Arie and Jermaine Dupri while putting out his own albums independently.
In May, he released his major-label debut, “New Orleans,” for Lil Wayne’s Young Money label. The eclectic R&B album riffs on Prince and Stevie Wonder while keeping things modern, and features cameos from Maroon 5’s Adam Levine, Busta Rhymes and Wonder himself.
