The award was for his song writing and production credits on India Arie’s track "Interested". Following this, PJ went on to win Dove and Stellar awards as well for his songwriting and production dexterities. Collaborating with Gospel artist DeWayne Woods on the track "Let Go, Let God" saw Morton’s career sky rocket even further. Morton also teamed up with Academy Award-winning composer AR Rahman (Slumdog Millionaire) to work on the song "Saina" off the soundtrack to the 2009 summer flick Couples Retreat which features Vince Vaughn.
Morton isn’t exactly new to the game yet his name is not that well known in the industry. One example would be his last solo effort, his fourth album titled Walk Alone. The album was acclaimed critically but did not receive enough commercial buzz. I do however suspect all that is going to change after now being associated with two of the top teams in the industry. What drew me to listen to PJ Morton was actually the cover of his EP. And after finding out about his two most recent affiliations, I was intrigued to find out what could come off this eccentric artist. From R&B to Soul to Funk, PJ Morton can do it all. The other tracks off the EP are great listens as well and I definitely recommend Follow My First Mind to anyone. Click the download link below for your free copy and get to listening.
