Biography

“Continue to carry out the legacy of being a musician that represents real music,” is what the iconic Stevie Wonder expressed to up and coming singer-songwriter Josh Xantus. Catching the ear of the pitch-perfect Stevie Wonder is unheard of for a new artist. However, after one listen to the fresh sound of his debut album, Can I Live?, it’s no shocker the entertainment industry is taking notice of Josh Xantus.

At only 24, Josh Xantus, which means golden in French, has already caught the eye of Swizz Beats, Los Da Mystro and Ne-Yo. His original sound is heightened with the discipline of being a Julliard trained classical pianist mixed with the swag of a true R&B prince.

Josh’s musical roots have a unique start. Born to Haitian parents in Brooklyn, New York, Josh and his four siblings moved to Queens when his mother and father separated. His mother, a violinist, had a passion for music; however, like many single mothers, her aspirations were put on hold to raise her children. But, she never forgot the music. “One of my mother’s dreams was she wanted her kids to play an instrument so she gave all of us pianos. She couldn’t pursue music like she wanted to so in her mind it was a self-fulfillment for us to play an instrument.” Little did his mother know that she was cultivating the beginnings of a superstar.
