Paul Laurence Morgan – “PJ Morgan” is best known as the Organist’s organist. The Washington, DC native grew up in a musical family, getting his exposure to the Hammond organ in a small Pentecostal church where his family served. After years of performing and playing in church, his big break into the music industry came when he was asked to fill in for a keyboardist who was unable to play for multiple award-winning Jazz musician Ben Tankard. Tankard moved PJ to Nashville to be his Music Director and to assist in building his record company. Since then, PJ has been on a blazing trail, playing in Gospel and mainstream genres, and earning well deserved accolades as a performer, producer, and teacher. www.pjmorganmusic.com
