PJ Morton, a native of New Orleans, La., most often describes his music as feel good music that lyrically tells stories about life and love music that makes your heart think. He coins his style of music, soulful pop. This 25-year old musical prodigy is indubitably a true seasoned musician who has garnered a reputation for writing and producing warm, heart-felt, and infectious songs that engage the heart.
