About Josh X.
Josh X. was introduced to music at a young age and began learning classical piano at the age of six. While the Haitian American singer practiced music classically, he has always had an affinity for R&B. Brian McKnight is one of his earlier influences.

While the classically trained pianist made the switch to R&B, the soothing classical vibes still live within his music.

Outside of R&B
