MJM is bringing in smooth sounds with his new album “Parables Part 1”

MJM, which stands for Mark J. Morgan, is an artist who puts his own situations into all his music. He comes from a Christian Gospel background but is currently transitioning into R&B which can be heard in his new album “Parables Part 1”. his sound a mix from Frank Ocean, MusiqSoulChild, and Mali Music. He writes about everything even the bad and ugly and says “I believe this is what I was created for: to reach out to those going through situations that most artists don’t touch. I’m vulnerable in my approach but really believe all of my music should have a message & provide resolution in some way.”

His first single off the album is “Hold You Down” which can be heard below:

He says that Proverbs 27:17, which states “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another”, is what inspired this track. “Brotherhood and the circumstances that life can sometimes bring causing each of our support systems to separate. The odds are against us, so no matter what life may bring, ‘Hold Me Up, I’ll Hold You Down'” can be heard throughout the song. The song also features Delanor Page who also the engineer for the track.

Here’s the official music video for the track:

The album, “MJM Parables Part 1” contains 6 tracks which was released July 11th of this year. With each track, you get to know MJM more personally. His smooth tone over these mellow PRNB beats just make the whole listening experience more intimate. He speaks of real issues that most of us go through and includes his faith especially in the track ‘With You’. It is definitely something I am listening to in rotation right now. Especially the songs “For The culture” and “Parallel”.
