Josh Charles is a critically acclaimed piano prodigy, guitarist, singer, producer and songwriter mentored by Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Dr. John. He has recorded for Columbia Records/Sony Music Entertainment, Island Records and Elektra Records/Warner Music Group. Josh has produced/co-produced and written/co-written seven albums, including his own “Love, Work & Money” (2010) and “1974” (to be released). In-depth television profiles of Josh and his music — including his philanthropic efforts to help re-build New Orleans after hurricane Katrina — have appeared on “Good Morning America,” “Tavis Smiley,” “CNN” and more. He has also been featured in national print and digital media, including “USA Today,” “LA Weekly,” “The Huffington Post,” “Keyboard Magazine,” “Voice of America,” “Electronic Musician,” and others. Josh was the first musical artist for Casio, serving as the national spokesperson for Casio’s Privia brand of digital pianos and appearing in the nationwide marketing campaign. He is also endorsed by Gibson Guitars, UVI, and Aston Mics. Josh moved to Nashville in 2013 to further develop his career. There he began collaborating with a string of number one hit writers including legendary rock icon John Oates, Milton L Brown, Sonia Leigh, Jeff Cohen, Bridgette Tatum, and others in both the country and pop/rock formats. In 2014, Josh also began producing and co-writing with traditional big band singer Steven Davis. That prolific partnership has since produced five albums of original songs and covers. Josh now resides in Los Angeles where he continues to write and produce with the biggest names in the music business — including Dr. Dre’s Aftermath production team — as well as up-and-coming artists. His forthcoming album "1974" will be released on AWAL/ Kobalt this summer.
