With the single release of Dig In Me Lord, some may wonder who is PJ aka Pastor Jones? But take note, PJ is no stranger to the music industry.
In 2010, he released his first solo gospel project entitled, FIRE, under the name, J.E. Jones. Prior to that, his successes included songwriter, producer and vice president at the renowned, Def Jam records, co-founded by Russell Simmons. He also climbed the latter to become Vice President of A&R at Uptown Records working with top hip-hop and R&B superstars, including Mary J. Blige, Heavy D and Montell Jordan. Additionally, making his mark in the broader entertainment world serving as Executive Producer of two of the biggest movie soundtracks of that era, Rush Hour and The Nutty Professor.
Despite his many successes, there was a void in his life. Although, it appeared he had it all, inwardly something was missing. “I was lonely, really lonely,” PJ confesses. “I had everything—cars, a beautiful house—but every day I would wake up with such a huge void. I would go home at night and cry.”
Desperate to fill that emptiness, one day PJ accepted his aunt’s invitation to go to church with her. He felt the Lord had been dealing with his heart for some time, but he had no idea how much his life was about to change. On that faithful day he accepted Jesus Christ as savior, the void was filled and a new journey began.
It’s been a long winding road, but the path has been blessed with purpose and destiny. Today he serves as the senior pastor of the Atlanta-based ministry Rejoice In The Word Church. He is also the founder of Ultimate Entertainment, a record label that combines his love of music with his passion for the Gospel.
Under the Ultimate Entertainment, he’s had the opportunity to use his skills as a songwriter/ producer to work with some of the biggest names in gospel music, including Mary Mary, Tye Tribbett, Dorinda Clark Cole and Kierra “Kiki” Sheard on the best selling release, Bishop Eddie Long & Friends The Kingdom Vol. 1.
Now, he back with his sophomore solo project. The debut single from the upcoming project entitled, DIG IN ME LORD is a cry to the Lord to examine and remove any and everything that stands in the way of pleasing Him. Lyrically and musically this song is a reflection of PJ heart, as well as an extension of his ministry.
