"I Miss You was inspired by me wanting that special person to know that I needed one more hug, and one more touch before they walked away. You realize that you never know what you have until it’s gone," mentions Josh. "Unfortunately, while in love, it happens like that sometimes," he adds.
The trained Classical Pianist is in the studio adding finishing touches to his upcoming KSR/EPIC Records album release. The anticipated, “The X Project“ is scheduled to be released later this fall. Josh X has worked with the likes of Cardi B., Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, and Swizz Beatz and is one of Stevie Wonder's longtime proteges.
Raised in Queens, the singer/songwriter/producer (born Josh Xantus) initially honed his musical chops as a classical pianist at the age of 6. “My mom being originally from Haiti, the thing she loved the most was classical music. My first influences were Mozart, Chopin, Bach, Beethoven,” he says. Although he’s trained in the Western canon, when he got around to listening to r&b, he fell in love with Brian McKnight. “He was a piano player and a singer. I wanted to learn his songs so I could do it too.”
In 2019, Josh released his "Piano Confessions" EP to rave reviews. All in preparation for the upcoming release of "The X Project". “A blend of that new-age R&B with bits of trap-vibes sprinkled throughout, while giving my fans the traditional Josh X sound with records as “One Last Time“. Musically and symbolically, it’s a full-circle for Josh. “I’ve been patient. It’s my time to shine.”
