and entrepreneur PJ Morton, there were no such obstacles known as labels. The only expectation he conformed to was following his own heart and dreams to fully discover his gift and love for music.

Now with his own fifth album release on S.O.S. Music entitled Walk Alone, PJ continues to share his heart, experiences and stories with the masses. Walk Alone is a deeply personal album entirely written, produced and performed by PJ. The highly anticipated concept album symbolizes the breadth of PJ’s self-expression as well as his creative choices with music beyond the confines of labels. “In the state of the world I feel alone because of the way I choose to do music with true instrumentation. Creating stories and lyrics with meaning feels like a minority not a majority.” Born into a musical and ministering family as the middle child and only son of Bishop Paul S. Morton, PJ’s journey has always reflected his desire for self-discovery and introspection. “My father and family always allowed me to be me, and music was my outlet for creativity.” Bishop Paul S.
