Maroon 5, PJ Morton and Apogee One
The band from Los Angeles have been gracing our charts as Maroon 5since 2002, before which they went by the name Kara’s Flowers without guitarist James Valentine who joined as the band changed their name. This “pop-funk-alternative rock” quintet have produced 3 studio albums, the first of which Songs About Jane contained hit single ‘This Love’.
The 5 piece have recently been working with Young Money Records artist PJ Morton
, who is one of the underground music’s finest according to Organic Soul Tuesdays . Before beginning their joint world tour in Turkey last year, the “soulful pop” musician teamed up with Maroon 5 to create music for charity. The song ‘Is Anybody Out There’ was created in just 24 hours, the studio session was streamed live to the 350,000 viewers who tuned in to see the collaboration. Taking musical ideas, opinions and general advice from their fans via Twitter .
“It’s a concept that’s pretty much to be expected from both Adam Levine and PJ. Giving themselves only 24 hours to complete the song could have been a tough challenge, but they pulled it off effortlessly. It’s a tight collaboration; PJ’s voice blends perfectly with Adam’s, and he fits right in with the rest of Maroon 5. “Is Anybody Out There” doesn’t sound rushed or unfinished. It’s actually polished, and it’s a testament to the talent of everyone involved with the project.” - Soul Bounce

“The ONE is all you need. The built in Mic sounds incredible! It’s really scary how much you can get done with only this device and a laptop. When I’m on tour, I don’t want to carry around too much stuff, but I want to be able to capture ideas; the ONE is the perfect solution. I actually prefer the sound of the built in ONE mic to the mic I had been carrying around in my travel bag.” - James Valentine
