These influences have brought him into the studio with such artists as Grammy-nominated South African trumpeter Hugh Masekela, Grammy Award-winning R&B, Pop and Jazz vocalist Patti Austin, Andy Narell, and Lisa Fischer to name a few. Josh has also provided remixes on multiple chart-topping dance classics for such artists as Diana Ross, Lisa Stansfield, Babyface, El DeBarge and Jody Watley.

The 2017 release of 6.9.69 marked a pivotal point in Josh’s career as he ventured out as a solo artist on his own label Honeycomb Music with his first full-length album. A solid collection of self- penned originals and covers of such classics as Blackbird (Beatles), I Wish You Well (Bill Withers), The Bottle (Gil Scott Heron) and Sweet Little Girl (Stevie Wonder), this two-disc project still only scratches the surface of Josh’s creative prowess.
