With Temporary Tears, Grammy Award winning R&B recording artist and producer PJ Morton has crafted a brilliant debut solo album for his protégé, JoJo Martin. Guests include Kirk Franklin and Kierra Sheard.
Temporary Tears is a deeply reflective muse on the tearful moments of Martin’s own life. However, the message is that tears are temporary with God’s help. Against a backdrop of sophisticated urban instrumentation, Martin sings of the premature loss of his mother, his near-death battle with kidney disease, ridding himself of false friends, and simply trying to find his footing as a man.
Temporary Tears is not just an album full of tracks, it’s a short story broken up into separate tracks with stellar appearances from Gospel royals like Kirk Franklin and Kierra Sheard. Martin’s smooth comforting tenor voice is the notepad upon which this musical open letter is written.
