“Five Minutes With” singer/songwriter, Josh Alexander

As a singer/songwriter, Montreal’s Josh Alexander has a taste for dramatics. Josh grew up in Quebec City, in a Latin/American/Canadian household. This multicultural environment has left an indelible mark in his music. He was always singing songs by John Legend and by Coldplay. In high school, he spent most of his free time in the music hall, where he learned to play and compose on the piano. As a youngster, he watched televised singing competitions with his family and in 2018, it was his turn to compete in one of Canada’s most-watched series La Voix. He was spotted and signed right away by his current management team, and has been pursuing music ever since. Now, Josh has released his debut EP Forevermore, a collection of music that is daring, beautiful and brave.
