Salvat had his first international success after the release of his EP In Your Prime when Sony picked his cover of Rihanna's song "Diamonds" (which was originally written by singer, songwriter and art performer Sia Furler) for promotion of Sony's new 4K Ultra HD television screen. Salvat has appeared in a number of important music festivals including Lovebox Festival in London, Lowlands in the Netherlands and collaborated with British recording engineer, record producer and mixer Dan Grech-Marguerat. He also opened for American singer-songwriter Banks in the British leg of her Goddess Tour in November 2014. His song "Shoot and Run" has also been featured on the TV advert for "Black Work" on ITV June 2015. Within the early months of the year, his first single of 2015, entitled "Hustler" was released after the success of both songs. This song also came with the release of the song "Every Night", which was done so as a digital download. In the summer months of the year, the single "Till I Found You" was then released, which followed the song "Open Season" to be released a few months later. In October 2015, his debut album "Night Swim" was released in France with a UK release of both a standard and deluxe version of "Night Swim" in February 2016.
Afterwards, his single of 2016 was released in January, entitled "Paradise" and was later followed by the release of "Punchline" as a promotional single later in the month. His debut album was released worldwide on February 12, 2016.
During the early months of February 2016, he also appeared and as featured vocalist in GRYFFIN's debut single "Heading Home". On 10 June 2016, Josef Salvat released a track called "Complex" providing the vocals for Swedish DJ and producer Jonas Rathsman.
His father is Spanish and he lived in Barcelona for a while.
Salvat is openly bisexual and has stated, "I’ve had numerous relationships with both genders so my songs are usually pronoun neutral. For artists like Olly from Years & Years and Sam Smith to use male pronouns, is great. It gives texture to their sound.”
