"A phenomenal talent whose feel for classic soul music is bone deep...This woman is on fire." -- The New York Times

One voice is all it takes. The right vocalist can make you fall in love at first listen, elicit tears, or bring you back to a different era altogether. A microphone and a stage remain the only necessities. That holds true for New York-based soul singer, songwriter, and Broadway actress Morgan James.

Her latest studio album is her first as an independent artist, and "Reckless Abandon" is her most personal outing yet, and prompting the Huffington Post to call MJ the "Brightest Breakout Artist of the Year". Morgan assumed co-writing duties on all twelve tracks and sang all her own background vocals. The album is stocked with lush horns and harmonies, and stretches limbs between genres for a sound all its own. From the Rufus inspired soul swagger of the opening track "Up In Smoke", to the delicious R&B slow jam "You Thought Not" (featured in Tyler Perry’s film “Nobody’s Fool”), to the infectious soulful pop of "Unworthy", MJ takes the listener into her new era of freedom and empowerment.
