21:03 began in 2003 when gospel production team PAJAM (Paul "PDA" Allen, Walter Kearney, and J Moss) held an audition in Detroit for a vocal group with a contemporary hip-hop/R&B image.
Evin Martin, Torrence Greene, and Jor'el Quinn were chosen, and the group began work on debut album Twenty One O' Three, which surfaced on Verity Records in 2006. Follow-up Total Attention emerged in 2008, and was a Top Five success on Billboard's Top Gospel Albums chart. Third album Evolved...From Boys to Men followed in 2012. Subsequently, Jor'el Quinn left the group, and Martin and Greene continued 21:03 as a duo, releasing the Outsiders EP in 2015. ~ Paul Simpson, Rovi
