William Joseph

Composer, Musician


William Joseph is one of the most electrifying pianists, composers and producers of our time. His rare virtuosity and passion left music icon David Foster mesmerized when he first heard him play. That chance encounter with Foster in Arizona sent Joseph’s career skyrocketing.


Foster’s interest and professional collaboration with Joseph also ushered in special opportunities to share the stage with world-class artists John Mayer, Beyoncé, John Legend, Michael Bublé, Steven Tyler, Alicia Keys, CeeLo Green, Carly Rae Jepsen, Andrea Bocelli, Mel Gibson, Sarah McLachlan, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Blake Shelton, Ray Romano, Brian McKnight, Seal, Robin Williams, Natalie Cole, and Barbra Streisand.
