By the time GRAMMY® Award- and Dove® Award-winning singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist and Maroon 5 keyboardist PJ Morton moved back to his native New Orleans in 2016, he had built an unbelievable career.

In addition to boasting collaborations with Adam Levine, Lil Wayne, and Busta Rhymes, his critically acclaimed 2013 offering, New Orleans, earned a 2014 GRAMMY® Award nomination in the category of “Best R&B Song” for “Only One” [feat. Stevie Wonder]. Pitchfork called it, “a smooth and soulful pop/R&B hybrid,” and the record dramatically expanded his influence. In addition to figuring prominently on Maroon 5’s multiplatinum Overexposed and V, Morton has written and produced for everybody from BJ The Chicago Kid, Jermaine Dupri, and Jazmine Sullivan to Monica and India.Arie, winning a GRAMMY® for collaborating with the latter in 2008. His music has also popped up in films such as Couples Retreat and more.

Among many other accolades, he has received Dove® and Stellar® Awards, published his literary debut Why Can’t I Sing About Love? in 2009, and become music director for Solange following the release of her critically acclaimed opus A Seat At The Table. Relocating from Los Angeles, he returned home with a pronounced fire and hunger. It simmers throughout his 2017 solo album and first offering for his own Morton Records, Gumbo from the funkified grooves of “Claustrophobic” [feat. Pell] to the unifying and undeniable message of “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright” [feat. BJ The Chicago Kid & The Hamiltones]. This is a new beginning for PJ and real soul.
Brandon Brown Collective
The BBC is a dynamic 12 piece galactic Funk Soul Band thats been taking Los Angeles by storm !! Lead by the creative vision of bass player Brandon Brown hailing from Memphis TN (whos played with everyone from Fergie, Christina Aguilera, to Isaac Hayes and Stevie Wonder) he’s been able to create a mosaic of some of the most electrifying and amazing musicians that this game has ever seen!!

To fully understand what The BBC is you really have to be in the room and allow yourself to be transported back in time to an era where rhythm sections ruled and sweat was preferred liquid of choice that glazed EVERY dance floor. The sheer sounds that emerge from this twelve piece mega band are nothing short of musically transformational and equally as bold and colorful as the Daishiki’s that they adorn themselves with from time to time. Paying homage to the classic bands such as Earth , wind and Fire, the Isley Brothers and Tower of Power, The BBC leave their own signature fingerprint on every tune that they play whether it be original or cover . If you are a lover of real music and a connoisseur of Funk , then you dont want to music miss an opportunity to experience The Brandon Brown Collective.
