Hi Soulsters! We wanted bring you the latest single from singer/songwriter and Maroon 5 member, PJ Morton, “Claustrophobic“. We haven’t heard much from Mr. Morton, since his wonderful 2013 release,”New Orleans“, so it is so great to hear from him again. Morton’s “Claustrophobic” is him expressing disdain for being put in a box musically. The music industry definitely has the ability to stifle any creativity an artist has and I’m sure many artists can relate to this song. What PJ Morton is singing about is one of the reasons why the music industry and radio is dead. So much of the music on the radio is uninspired and has no depth. It’s just filler with no soul to it. This song is powerful and it gives voice to those just wanting to be creative and have it be accepted as it is. PJ Morton has always been a gifted and soulful songwriter and “Claustrophobic” showcases that effortlessly.

PJ Morton is no longer in the category of Indie Music Artist, however, I just listened to his latest album “New Orleans” released on Cash Money Records last month, and I was absolutely blown away! I had to give him a mention, because every song on this album is GREAT for lack of a better word. You can ride this album out from beginning to end, and it lives up to its title. New Orleans is known for its Gumbo and Jambalaya and this album represents just that. It has every genre of music, R&B Soul, Pop, Jazz, Hip Hop and even Reggae. The featured artists on New Orleans also represent a tasty mix with artists such as Stevie Wonder (my absolute Music God), Adam Levine, Tweet (impatiently waiting for her next release), Busta Rhymes and Little Wayne. PJ Morton really “put his foot” in this release and it shows so much growth from his 2005 independent debut, “Emotions”. Please add this to your music collection. It is definitely a must have for any real music lover. “New Orleans” is a perfect mix of seasonings and spices for the ears. Enjoy!
