Praise for PAUL
"A New Orleans-born virtuoso...[PJ Morton] runs the influences of Allen Toussaint and Stevie Wonder through a bevy of ideas from R&B's more recent decades. All the while he's leaning hard on his buttery, heartfelt singing voice and masterful studio chops."

The New York Times
"It's clear from PAUL that Morton has figured out what he wants to say as a solo artist"
"PJ Morton doesn't shy away from making a point with his lyrics."
The Wall Street Journal
"One of music's most inventive, intrepid virtuosos."
Interview Magazine
"PAUL is a feel-good journey back to basics...nods to the simplicities of human emotion...turns up the volume on pro-blackness"
