)-- SOUL LOUNGE USA initiates a Soul Music Tour featuring Maroon 5 Member and Grammy-Winner PJ Morton in Huntington, WV, Philadelphia, PA, Chattanooga, TN and Huntsville, AL.
The Soul Lounge Tour with PJ Morton will route to Marshall University on Wednesday, April 25, 2012, and pick up in Philadelphia on May 3rd at The Arts Garage. The Tour ends with a Saturday, May 5th date at The Chattanooga Convention Center and Crossroads Music Hall in Huntsville, Alabama on Sunday, May 6th. Details of these dates can be found at www.SoulLoungeUSA.com
Soul Lounge USA previously produced shows featuring PJ Morton early April 2012 in Little Rock and Memphis to jump start the tour.
PJ Morton is living his dream of music without constraints. As a keyboardist/vocalist for Maroon 5, one of the most musically relevant bands of the 21st century, PJ has the rare opportunity to influence pop culture and perform for millions of fans. As a solo artist signed to Lil Wayne’s Young Money imprint, PJ has the ability to express his creativity and be appreciated for his “soulful pop” contribution, a genre he coined when describing his signature sound.
As if Young Money and Maroon 5 were not worlds apart on the melodic spectrum, the New Orleans native also writes for inspirational/gospel artists. In addition to winning Stellar and Dove awards, PJ nabbed a Grammy award for production and songwriting on India Arie’s 2006 celebrated release, “Voyage to India” for the track entitled “Interested”. PJ’s talents also include contributing to several movie scores including the Vince Vaughn comedy “Couple’s Retreat.”
Today PJ is focused on his solo project while he plans to tour with Maroon 5 in summer 2012. He plans to release music over the upcoming year in anticipation for his solo project, “Following My First Mind.”
SOUL LOUNGE USA first established a solid presence in Nashville, Tennessee, in 2008 by promoting and producing a hip, soul, live music event featuring spoken word artist, soul vocalists and bands every Sunday at BB Kings. The Event has attracted some of the Country’s most sought after Soul artist like Grammy Winners PJ Morton, Tommy Sims and Grammy Nominees Lalah Hathaway and N’dambi.
This Soul event was so unique and in such high demand that other cities and venues requested its "vibe." After establishing a SOUL LOUNGE franchise in Memphis in early 2009, the grassroots concept took off like wildfire.
Now with a presence in 21 markets including Washington DC, Memphis, Atlanta and Brooklyn, founder Bill Lee McCleskey says the future is even brighter. “We have discussions weekly with different cities or venues interested in a Soul Lounge franchise… We’re excited about what the future holds for this company and for authentic Soul music.
“More Tours will pick up with artists like Rahsaan Patterson and Kenny Latimore in the Summer 2012 with several more cities. If you haven’t been to a Soul Lounge Event, then you are missing an experience.”
