In 2017, PJ Morton released Gumbo, his fourth LP and the first he released on Morton Records.
The musical style Morton encompasses is similar to the Cajun delicacy. Morton isn’t an artist that is constrained to one style of music. He is an R&B man at heart, but his sound also adds soul, funk, jazz, and a little dabble of pop. Mix it all together, and you have the sound of a musician easily fits in with the times.
After recording and releasing Gumbo, Morton returned to his home band, Maroon 5, for a bit. After his work with Maroon 5 ended -- which yielded the summer smash “Girls Like You” -- Morton went back to plot his return to the road, bringing a pot of that good Gumbo to the folks who missed the first round.
The More Gumbo Tour will start this fall in Japan, crisscross the European continent, and finally bring that boiling pot of Gumbo to North America in mid-November, with his first show being in Asbury Park, New Jersey. For the sake of this article, only the North American dates will be listed, along with information on tickets to a show that will be good for the soul.
