James Moss well known by his stage name J. Moss, is an American gospel musician, composer, producer and arranger.

After returning to Detroit, Moss signed with a small local Christian label Aviday Records and released two albums to little fanfare. Yet, during this time he became acquainted with Paul Allen and Walter Kearney. The three started working together as PAJAM. Moss spent the mid-90s touring with The Clark Sisters and was signed, together with Karen Clark-Sheard, his cousin, to Island Records in 1996 to record a solo album. While a proper release never materialized for Moss before Island Black Music shut its doors, Clark’s became a smash and introduced the Gospel world to the production powerhouse of PAJAM.
