About PJ Morton
Adam Levine isn't the only member of Maroon 5 to find solo success. PJ Morton, who has been a stand-in keyboardist for the pop rock group, is also on the fast track to stardom.
Morton, who has a deal under Lil Wayne's Young Money label, released his first solo recording, the EP "My First Mind," in 2012. His career trajectory has been all uphill since then, as he has worked with the likes of Levine, Wayne, Jazmine Sullivan and Chantae Cann.
Of course what first put Morton on the musical map were his collaborations, songwriting and productions for other artists. After winning Grammys for India.Arie's "Intereted," He also won Dove and Stellar awards in 2008. Next came a collaboration with DeWayne Woods, which only broadened Morton's circle of friends in the industry, and before long he was producing and writing for everyone from LL Cool J to Monica. Then came a book, "Why Can't I Sing About Love?" in 2009.
Singer. Producer. Author. What was next? For Morton it was auditioning for Maroon 5 and temporarily filling in for keyboardist Jesse Carmichael. Then after his first EP came his first full studio album, "New Orleans," which included a single called "Only One" featuring Stevie Wonder. If you're wondering how much brighter Morton's star can get in 2014, keep an eye out. "Only One" has been nominated for a Grammy for Best R&B Song. The awards show is set to take place in late January at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
